"The energy crisis shows the importance of European solidarity in response to asymmetric shocks".

The war in Ukraine has aggravated an already existing situation, marked by a drop in the availability of natural gas in Europe and an unprecedented rise in market prices, says Nicolas Berghmans. This means that the European Union must review its energy model, prepare a joint response and show unwavering solidarity.

The Black Sea, the spectre of a new Iron Curtain?

As the meeting point between Europe, Russia, Turkey and the United States through NATO, the Black Sea is a crucial stake in the war in Ukraine. A compromise in favour of Russia would be the final blow to the world order that the EU hopes to build.

Germany under pressure in Europe

Germany is facing major economic, diplomatic and political challenges that require it to change its model. For Germany, as for any other Member State, especially the "big" ones, there will only be an effective and strong response through European cooperation and solidarity, emphasises Jean-Dominique Giuliani.

"It is high time to light up Europe's stars again"

France at the head of the Council: positive results despite the war

The French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, which ended on 30 June, had been shaken by the invasion of Ukraine and its consequences. The EU-27 have imposed unprecedented sanctions on Russia, broken the taboo surrounding the financing of the war, decided to change their energy supplies and opened the door to further enlargement. They have also had to accommodate several million people fleeing war, deal with the highest inflation in decades and anticipate a global food crisis. But "reflection on the future of the Union" has only just begun.

The Big Shift

Contrary to popular discourse, Jean-Dominique Giuliani shows that the European Union has the means to address the new challenges of the 21st century. Europe has succeeded beyond the expectations of its founding fathers. It can still succeed in guaranteeing its place among the three greatest powers in the world by the end of the century.

European news
  • Poland: new President of the Supreme Court
    Polish President Andrzej Duda appointed Judge Malgorzata Manowska to head the Supreme Court on 25 May. The appointment has been strongly criticised by legal experts and the opposition because Ms Manowska, a former deputy justice minister, is close to the ruling Law and Justice Party. Poland has already been threatened with sanctions by the European Union for its attempts by the government to take control of the Supreme Court.
  • European Economic Area Council meeting
    On 25 May, the members of the European Economic Area (EEA) Council discussed the functioning of the EEA and the consequences of Covid-19 for the internal market. They reiterated their commitment to continue the energy transition and the fight against pollution, as well as their desire to reduce social disparities and improve working conditions. They also exchanged views with Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier on the discussions between the Union and the United Kingdom.
  • Adoption of support measures for the air and rail sectors
    The Council definitively adopted on 25 March the support measures for the air and rail sectors proposed by the Commission on 29 April. These measures allow a temporary suspension of the air transport licensing system in the event of financial difficulties, make air traffic restrictions easier for Member States to implement and enable airports to extend unloading service contracts until 2022. With regard to rail, the Regulation extends the period of implementation of the 4th railway package.
