Europe needs a new investment plan

Faced with an energy crisis that began long before the war in Ukraine, European industry is in danger of relocating massively in the face of rising costs. To cope with this, the Union must launch a major investment plan to cap the price of electricity and subsidize critical industries, writes Jean-Dominique Giuliani.

Will the new generation be up to the task of succession?

For the new generation, born after the fall of the Berlin Wall, peace was a matter of course, until the invasion of Ukraine brutally signalled the return of war to the continent. It must rise to an improbable challenge: to return to the sources of the European project and at the same time give it a new profile and a real capacity to act in an unstable and divided world.

Retirement Systems in the European Union

Pension systems are regularly the subject of debate in the Member States and discussions at European level because of their weight on budgets and the demographic evolution of Europe. While each country has its own system, the Foundation provides a comparative table to better understand the situation in each country and the issues involved.

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.
