The multi-annual financial framework 2021/2027: to be the beacon

José Manuel Fernandes
European Issue n°563 - 15/06/2020

Given the new challenges and in particular the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the multiannual financial framework 2021/2027 will be particularly decisive for the survival of the European project launched by Robert Schuman 70 years ago. According to José Manuel Fernandes, the recovery plan proposed by the Commission is courageous and Parliament is maintaining an ambitious and united position. It is up to the Heads of State and Government to rise to the challenge.

The Challenges and Constraints facing a "Geopolitical Commission" in the achievement of European sovereignty

Pierre Mirel - Xavier Mirel
European Issue n°560 - 25/05/2020

The crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic is accentuating the technological, economic and security challenges that the Union faces in its relations with China, Russia and the United States. Its neighbourhood policy, particularly in the Western Balkans, is an important instrument for the promotion of its strategic interests.

Mediterranean Sea: a paradigm of contemporary conflicts

Amiral Jean Casabianca
European Issue n°564 - 22/06/2020

An area of trade and conflict since antiquity, the Mediterranean Sea remains a major crossroads for the interaction of the main strategic competitors. The multiplication of actors, and the inevitable duplicity that goes with it, generate the ambiguity of stated or real intentions. But Europe is best placed to understand this uncertain space and take a more active part.

The European Union and its model to regulate international trade relations

Alan Hervé
European Issue n°554 - 14/04/2020

The European Union is one of the main promoters of free trade agreements (FTAs). This position is not new: since the mid-2000s, and even more so in the decade now ending, the Commission, supported by the Council and the European Parliament, has constantly sought to negotiate and conclude new trade agreements. This strategy has paid off. In 2018, almost a third of trade between Europe and the rest of the world was covered by the preferential provisions of an FTA, a figure that is expected to increase significantly in 2020, following the entry into force of the agreement with Vietnam, and to rise in the coming years to more than 40% if the agreements currently being negotiated with Mercosur, the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and possibly the United Kingdom come into force.
