  1. We’re in this boat together: Time for a Migration Union. CEPS Policy Insights No 2018/09, June 2018

    Carrera, Sergio; Lannoo, Karel.
    Despite the political impasse reached among certain EU member state governments in their attempts to reform EU asylum policy, this Policy Insight argues that ‘we’re in this boat together’. The EU needs a Migration Union, with all that that implies. Furthering institutional centralisation in the areas of asylum and migration could benefit from the ‘lessons learned’ from the EU’s response to the eurozone crisis.

  2. Progress in resolving the Greek-Macedonian name dispute – Will it break the Gordian knot at last? CEPS Commentary, 18 June 2018

    Fouéré, Erwan
    Some might argue that Macedonia is being asked to pay an unduly heavy price simply for the sake of starting EU accession negotiations, while others will believe that the Agreement reached last weekend is well worth that price.

  3. Is the European Semester effective and useful? Bruegel Policy Contribution Issue n˚09 | June 2018

    Efstathiou, Konstantinos; Wolff, Guntram B.
    The authors study whether and to what extent EU countries implement recommendations on macroeconomic imbalances given by the EU in the so-called European Semester. Overall implementation of recommendations by EU countries has worsened in the last few years, in particular when it comes to recommendations addressed to countries with excessive macroeconomic imbalances.

  4. Armenia’s “Velvet Revolution”: Time is Pashinyan’s worst enemy. EPC Commentary, 30 May 2018

    Paul, Amanda; Sammut, Dennis
    Nikol Pashinyan’s meteoric rise to the leadership of Armenia has happened unexpectedly. Widespread discontent with the administration of former president Serzh Sargsyan, youth's frustration with corrupt practices, and Pashinyan's sheer audacity turned what looked like an impossible task into a reality. A protest movement that started quite modestly in late March, focusing primarily on trying to block the appointment of Sargsyan as the country's new prime minister with full executive powers, eventually forced the governing Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) to acquiesce to Pashinyan's demands.

  5. Agriculture in Europe: Greener practices and a brighter future for the sector. EPC Policy Brief, 30 May 2018

    Löprich, Carolin
    The future of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is closely linked with the discussion on the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021-2027. As the CAP is one of the biggest recipients of EU money, any changes to the amount of funding available and criteria for its use will have major implications for the sector. With the upcoming negotiations on the next EU budget, there is an opportunity to make European farming more sustainable. The new CAP should mirror the climate ambitions of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement by creating new incentives for farmers to align their practices....

  6. Poroshenko stands alone. Ukraine politics in a pre-election year. OSW Commentary NUMBER 269 | 21.05.2018

    Iwański, Tadeusz
    The year 2019 will be an election year in Ukraine, with a presidential election in the spring and a parliamentary election in the autumn. The short timeframe and the order in which these two elections will be held increase the chances of the winner of the presidential election forming the largest faction in parliament. The first phase of election campaigning has already begun, with Petro Poroshenko and Yulia Tymoshenko as the main contenders, but opinion polls are inconclusive. The atmosphere surrounding the campaign is one of mistrust on the part of voters in the authorities and the political class. Ukraine’s...

  7. Rebuilding Germany’s air defence capabilities: on the eve of crucial decisions. OSW Commentary NUMBER 268 | 17.05.2018

    Gotkowska, Justyna
    As NATO has returned its focus to collective defence since 2014, very short, short-range and medium-range surface-based air defence has become a desirable capability. Germany, which has been recalibrating the Bundeswehr to resume participation in conventional military conflicts, is in the process of re-creating air defence capabilities. In 2018–2019, the German Defence Ministry is expected to take decisions regarding two crucial air defence programmes: the NNbS and the TLVS.

  8. Does the euro area need a safe or a diversified asset? CEPS Policy Brief No 2018/03, 24 May 2018

    Gros, Daniel.
    The banking system of the euro area can be stabilised even without creating a new ‘safe’ asset. The real problem is the concentration of risk on bank’s balance sheets in the form of large holdings of bonds of the home sovereign. Diversification should be the first priority. But the current regulatory framework hinders diversification of sovereign risk because existing investment funds of euro area government bonds are treated as if they were much less safe and liquid than the individual government bonds themselves.

  9. How transparent are the EU institutions? CEPS Commentary, 23 May 2018

    O’Reilly, Emily
    Matching the EU institutions’ positive rhetoric about democratic ideals with their practical administrative actions is ultimately what the European Ombudsman is about.

  10. Diversification first: Why the euro area does not need an artificial safe asset. CEPS Commentary, 25 May 2018

    Gros, Daniel.
    The European Commission has now tabled ‘enabling’ legislation for the creation of ‘SBBS’, sovereign bond-backed securities. The official purpose is to allow financial markets to create a ‘safe asset’, which should be used by banks instead of government bonds.

  11. Who lost Italy? CEPS Commentary, 30 May 2018

    Gros, Daniel.
    The root causes of the current crisis in Italy are domestic; they have little to do with fiscal rules or a lack of risk sharing. This means that the crisis needs to be resolved domestically.

  12. Should the EU budget have a stabilisation function? CEPS Commentary, 30 May 2018

    Ferrer, Jorge Núñez; Alcidi, Cinzia.
    Despite its sharper focus on long-term growth, the EU budget is still not designed to fulfil a stabilisation function. More can be done.

  13. How to exit the euro in a nutshell – ‘Il Piano Savona’. CEPS Commentary, 1 June 2018

    Gros, Daniel.
    This contribution offers an eight-point analysis of a Plan adopted by the Lega Party for Italy’s exit from the euro that seems designed to confirm Germany’s worst fears.

  14. Brexit: What Theresa May's White Paper must do. EPC Discussion Paper, 16 May 2018

    Duff, Andrew
    The Article 50 secession treaty must be accompanied by a Political Declaration outlining the framework for the future relationship between the UK and EU. Drafting the Political Declaration is now an urgent necessity. The UK has one chance - preferably in its just announced White Paper and before the June European Council - to contribute to its drafting. Mrs May’s efforts to offer a serious prospectus for the future have been unconvincing, lacking detail especially on governance. There are essentially three parts to the future relationship: economic partnership; security partnership; and governance. All three can only be accommodated inside an association...

  15. Turkey votes: Snap elections – Turkey at yet another crossroads. EPC Commentary, 15 May 2018

    Paul, Amanda; Seyrek, Demir Murat
    On 24 June, Turkey will hold snap presidential and parliamentary elections, almost 17 months earlier than planned. Their outcome is bound to fundamentally transform Turkish politics from a parliamentary system to a presidential governance model, which gives the president sweeping powers. President Erdoğan announced early elections with the expectation that it would boost his and the ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) chances of winning, while also taking the opposition by surprise. However, Turkey’s historically fragmented opposition has swiftly mobilised. For the first time, it has united. Political parties from different backgrounds and ideologies are coming together with one common aim...

  16. A new opening in relations between the EU and the Western Balkans. OSW Commentary NUMBER 267 | 16.05.2018

    Szpala, Marta
    The EU-Western Balkans summit held on 17 May in Sofia – the first such event since 2003 – is one example of the EU’s increasing interest in the Balkan states which aspire to membership. On 6 February, the European Commission presented its new strategy for its Western Balkans policy. Its desire to become more closely involved in the region has also been indicated by visits from the EC President Jean-Claude Juncker and the head of the European Council Donald Tusk to all the countries in the region during recent months. This activity on the part of EU institutions has been accompanied by actions targeted at the...

  17. Navo moet missie in Afghanistan herbekijken = NATO must review the mission in Afghanistan. Egmont Commentary, 21 August 2008

    Biscop, Sven
    SVEN BISCOP gelooft niet dat de Navo-missie in Afghanistan zoals ze nu loopt veel resultaat zal opleveren. Pas wanneer de missie een duidelijke strategie heeft en een haalbaar doel, is het voor België aangewezen om zijn deel van het werk op zich te nemen.

  18. l’OTAN: d’alliés à partenaires = NATO: from allies to partners. Egmont Commentary, 30 March 2009

    Biscop, Sven
    No abstract.

  19. Privatising censorship. CEPS Commentary, 14 May 2018

    Echikson, William
    There are many things policy-makers can do to fight fake news and propaganda, but they must be careful to ensure they don’t find themselves mimicking the behaviour of authoritarian states.

  20. What Europe needs to create more Spotifys. CEPS Commentary, 16 May 2018

    Echikson, William
    Europe is home to many potential Larry Pages and Mark Zuckerbergs. It just needs to stop holding them back in a web of national regulations and let them fly.
