Die EU-Außenbeauftragte Federica Mogherini weist den Vorwurf zurück, dass die Rettung von Migranten im Mittelmeer durch die Marinemission „Sophia“ noch mehr Menschen nach Europa locke. „Leben zu retten ist kein ,pull factor‘. Es ist eine Pflicht. Ich verweigere mich dem Argument, dass wir durch die Seenotrettung Migranten anziehen. Wenn eine Mutter bereit ist, in ein Schlauchboot zu […]

Piras was interviewed by EURACTIV’s editor-in-chief Daniela Vincenti. Europe at Sea? I sense a note of pessimism in the title of your new documentary. Is Europe really all at sea? In the title, there is both a note of pessimism and a note of hope – metaphorically and physically. When you are at sea a lot […]

Dear Donald My predecessor informed you of our “intention” to quit the EU in March 2017. I want to tell you that we have changed our mind and no longer intend to leave, and so we are withdrawing our notification under Article 50 of the treaty. John Kerr, who wrote Article 50, has pointed out that we […]

It could be bitter break-up. But it could also be amicable. And given we’re starting to miss EU’s warm embrace, we might get back together.

Former deputy PM says we should stop clock on Brexit, then negotiate new role in EU. It is better to try to stop Brexit dead in its tracks.

Recent polling suggests Remainers who had accepted Brexit increasingly want to stay in EU. Strong arguments can help harden this stance.

Put simply, President Macron will need to make France an easier, more dynamic place in which to create and expand businesses, so as to increase employment and wages, while at the same time providing an increased sense of security and equal participation to citizens of all ages. Fortunately, he considers Europe as France’s friend, not […]

Europe needs your help. In all its nations, a battle between hope and anger is under way, as France’s election has shown. This summer we will be relaunching Wake Up Europe with a new film and to campaign for the reforms needed to restore Europe’s core values. Your ideas, your energy and your support will […]

It counts as a huge relief to anyone who believes in liberty, the open society and European collaboration. But the election of Emmanuel Macron as France’s president, welcome as it is, does not mean that the moment of “peak populism” has passed in either Europe or America. The despair and disillusion that persuaded fully 35% […]

In the coming weeks, citizens across Europe will go to the polls in some of the most significant elections for generations. In France, the far-right Front National has once again made it to the second round run-off of the Presidential elections. Much of their support comes from young people, making the prospect of a Le Pen […]

No election has been more important for the future of Europe, and perhaps the world, than this one, as our Director Bill Emmott explains. We have selected five of the best infographics that make sense of the first-round election results, current polling and their implications. We’d love to hear what you think 1. Deutsche Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik […]

Huge efforts can be expected to try to discredit the 39-year-old leader and founder of En Marche (“Forward”), the movement that during the past year has surprised the nation through its vigour, popular appeal and rapid growth. Social media, in the use of which the Front National has proved adept, will be buzzing with stories, […]

Since Martin Schulz, former president of the European Parliament, became leader of Merkel’s coalition partner, the centre-left Social Democratic Party, a little more than two weeks ago, the SDP has surged in the opinion polls, even in some polls overtaking Merkel’s centre-right Christian Democrats/Christian Social Union group. Novelty is a powerful force in politics. So […]

​ It is a gamble, but a logical one. Even last summer, Mrs May had indicated that her priorities were to put limits on EU freedom of movement into Britain and to end all jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in the UK. That requires Britain to leave the single market, since European laws govern that market […]

De Gaulle wasn’t really a collaborative believer in European solidarity. After all, he notoriously held the young European Community to ransom in the mid-1960s by boycotting meetings in order to foster his own vision of an intergovernmental, rather than supranational, Europe. He was what Donald Trump might call a “France Firster”. But still, he wanted […]

The long, slow fuse on Italy’s time-bomb has been lit. The crushing defeat of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s constitutional reform proposals in the national referendum on 4th December has left the whole country—indeed the whole of Europe—wondering whether the anti-euro Five Star Movement might soon come to national power. Five Star, the internet-based political party […]

Neither reaction is sound, at least not for the longer term. The battle to save Europe is on. Winning it requires sobriety and determination, not sentimentality. Matteo Renzi had failed. That is why he lost his referendum, with the “no” camp made up both of pro-Europeans and of the sort of young, university-educated professionals that […]
