The European Elections Monitor - 05/06/2018

The Democratic Party (SDS), led by former head of government (2004-2008 and 2012-2013), Janez Jansa, came out ahead in the snap election (by just a few months) which took place on 3rd June in Slovenia. He won 24.94% of the vote and took 25 seats in the Drzavni Zbor (the National Assembly), the lower house of parliament, i.e. four more than in the previous general elections on 13th July 2014.

How to consolidate the euro area?

Dominique Perrut
European Issue n°478 - 25/06/2018

Faced with two challenges, that of the convergence of atomised national economies and the reinforcing of the internal cohesion of its structures, the eurozone has to evolve. On the eve of the European Council, leaders have to discuss two series of measures, put forward by the Commission. One focuses on the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), which governs the euro zone and the other, on the Union's budget. After reviewing the situation in the euro zone, this paper will analyse the proposed reform of the EMU.

In the face of the European Union's political crisis: the vital cultural combat over values

Thierry Chopin - Lukáš Macek
European Issue n°479 - 02/07/2018

To what extent are European values shared by all Europeans? The question is raised at the national level of each society, but recently, it has also and especially emerged quite forcefully at European Union level. Do its Member States all recognise themselves in this and do they respect it? The most recent political developments, including the cleavage over the migratory policy, highlight a true divorce between East and West in terms of these fundamental values. The question is not just of a theoretical nature, since the European Commission has initiated the triggering of the measure included in article 7 of the TEU against Poland.

Western Balkans-European Union: between internal cohesion and external stability

Pierre Mirel
European Issue n°480 - 09/07/2018

Whilst the Sofia Summit organised on 17th May illustrated the European Union's re-commitment to the perspective of membership for the Western Balkans, it did, nevertheless, re-iterate conditionality which goes together with a vital reform of the Union says Pierre Mirel who analyses in detail the state of progress of the process for each of the six countries in the region.

Strength in unity, the rebirth of a geopolitical fact

Michel Foucher
European Issue n°481 - 16/07/2018

Caught between an uncertain American ally, a threatening Russian neighbour and an insatiable Chinese appetite the European Union must assert its interests in the international arena. According to Michel Foucher, in this context Europe must first take stock of the new international order to revive the European project both from the internal and international points of view.
