  1. The challenge of Jihadist radicalisation. In Europe and beyond. 2017

    Van Rompuy, Herman; Bonazzi, Roberta; Frontini, Andrea; Ritzmann, Alexander; Manea, Elham; Goodwin, Matthew; Azinovic´, Vlado; Murat Seyrek, Demir; Paul, Paul; Farid,, Marwa; Sutton, Rupert; Abbas, Tahir; Vidino, Lorenzo
    Today Europe finds itself on the frontline in the fight against terrorism and jihadist radicalisation. Over the past fourteen months, the horrendous terrorist attacks that have taken place in France, Germany and Belgium, as well as in Turkey, Tunisia, and elsewhere around the world, have claimed hundreds of lives. As a Belgian national, the three bombs that were detonated in my country, in the departure hall of the Brussels International Airport in Zaventem, and at the Maelbeek Metro station, a few hundred metres from key EU institutions, was a particularly traumatic moment for me. In many ways, the attacks of 22 March were Belgium’s own 9/11, representing the worst...

  2. Feasibility and added value of a European Unemployment benefits scheme. CEPS Research Report

    Beblavý, Miroslav
    This CEPS e-Book presents the final report of a comprehensive project on the Feasibility and Added Value of a European Unemployment Benefits Scheme, initiated by the European Parliament and commissioned by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion. The aim of the study is to assess the legal and operational feasibility of introducing a European unemployment benefits scheme (EUBS), as well as the economic added value that such as scheme could bring. Some 18 different variants of an EUBS are analysed in terms of their design, legal and operational challenges and economic effects. The study presents the...

  3. Sparkling, Plowing and Urbanizing

    Evangelidis, Vasileios
    This book presents a history of mechanization and electrification from the viewpoint of the periphery, that is, from the aspects of the agrarian countryside, the South-Eastern Europe, the developing countries, etc., focusing on agrarian communities in Greece. It is also a comparative research on the respective changes between centre and periphery, through their interaction with modernity, technology and market, in the face of crises and business cycles. With this inquiry, we aim to discuss popular conceptions of civilization and technical progress, e.g. lighting, communications, mechanization etc.; to research the available resources for an appraisal of the penetration of modern...

  4. Solidarity: For Sale? The Social Dimension of the New European Economic Governances. Europe in Dialogue 2012/01

    Bajnai, Gordon; Fischer, Thomas; Hare, Stephanie; Hoffmann, Sarah; Nicolaidis, Kalypso; Rossi, Vanessa; Viehoff, Juri; Watt, Andrew
    The Europeans can be proud as they look back on fifty years of peaceful integration. Nowadays many people in the world see the European Union as a model of how states and their citizens can work together in peace and in freedom. However, this achievement does not automatically mean that the EU has the ability to deal with the problems of the future in a rapidly changing world. For this reason the European Union needs to keep developing its unity in diversity in a dynamic way, be it with regard to energy issues, the euro, climate change or new types of...

  8. Deepening EU-Moldovan Relations: What, why and how? CEPS Special Report, 23 August 2016

    Emerson, Michael; Cenușa, Denis
    The signing of the Association Agreement and DCFTA between Moldova and the European Union in 2014 was a strategic political act to deepen the realisation of Moldova’s ‘European choice’. Of all the EU’s eastern neighbours, Moldova is objectively the most European on several accounts, including sharing a common history, language, culture and border with its direct neighbour and now EU member state Romania. This signifies highly positive foundations for making a success of the Agreement, notwithstanding the major political and economic challenges that contemporary Moldova faces. The purpose of this Handbook is to make the legal content of the Association Agreement...

  9. Deepening EU-Ukrainian Relations: What, why and how? CEPS Special Report, 23 August 2016

    Emerson, Michael; Movchan, Veronika
    The signing of the Association Agreement and DCFTA between Ukraine and the European Union in 2014 was an act of strategic, geopolitical significance in the history of Ukraine. Emblematic of a struggle to replace the Yanukovich regime at home and to resist attempts by Russia to deny Ukraine its ‘European choice’, the Association Agreement is a defiant statement of the country’s choice to become a democratic, independent state. The purpose of this Handbook is to make the legal content of the Association Agreement clearly comprehensible. It covers all the significant political and economic chapters of the Agreement, and in each case...

  10. EU-Iran Relations after the Nuclear Deal.

    Blockmans, Steven.; Ehteshami, Anoushiravan; Bahgat, Gawdat; Arnaldo Abruzzini, Arnaldo Abruzzini; Florensa, Senén; de los Fayos, Fernando Garcés; Golpour, Majid; Koch, Christian; Modrall, Jay; Ponzone, Enrico; Rashedan, Nima; Zamirirad, Azadeh
    The signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action between Iran and global powers in July 2015 was a major turning point in the emerging strategic landscape of the Middle East. The ‘nuclear deal’ led to the lifting by the EU and the US of nuclear-related sanctions, and is now operational. Other sanctions remain in place, however. Nevertheless, unhindered by US competition, European trade delegations have entered into a latter-day gold rush, led by the promise of the biggest untapped market in the world. As such, the EU has both an opportunity and a responsibility to help Iran reintegrate properly into...

  11. Britain and Europe: A new settlement? EPC Challenge Europe 23, May 2016

    Wall, Stephen; Hannay, David; Edward, David; Goldsmith, Peter; Cooper, Robert; Grabbe, Heather; Cameron, Fraser; Avery, Graham; Harbour, Malcolm; Peel, Quentin; Hughes, Kirsty.; Lucas, Caroline; Donnelly, Brendan.; Duff, Andrew
    he Brexit referendum on 23 June is of the utmost importance for the future of both Britain and the EU, yet so far there has been an alarming lack of strategic vision and positive narratives about Britain’s historical and future role within Europe. This new EPC publication ‘Britain and Europe: A new settlement?’ draws on past experience to make the case for more positive British engagement with the EU. Contributions from fourteen prominent Britons* who have extensive first-hand experience of the EU institutions provide important insights into events which have shaped – and still shape – our Union. For those...

  12. Tomorrow's silk road: Assessing an EU-China Free Trade Agreement.

    Pelkmans, Jacques.; Hu, Weinian; Mustilli, Federica; Di Salvo, Mattia; Francois, Joseph; Bekkers, Eddy; Manchin, Miriam.; Tomberger, Patrick
    Foreword. The Foreign Trade Association, which represents the European and international distribution and retail sector, commissioned this study in light of the importance of China as a sourcing country and its attractiveness as a rapidly growing consumer market. We believe that open borders and free trade can contribute to a broader choice and lower costs for consumers and create growth and employment in both Europe and China. This independent study aims to provide an in-depth contribution on the status of bilateral economic exchanges and persistent trade barriers that exist between the European Union and China. The second objective of the report is to encourage a frank and...

  13. Tomorrow’s Silk Road: Assessing an EU-China Free Trade Agreement

    Pelkmans, Jacques.; Hu, Weinian; Mustilli, Federica; Di Salvo, Mattia; Francois, Joseph; Bekkers, Eddy; Manchin, Miriam.; Tomberger, Patrick
    This book provides an independent and in-depth contribution on the status of bilateral economic exchanges and persistent trade barriers between the European Union and China. A second objective is to encourage a frank and open dialogue, based on a scientific evaluation and without prejudice, of the possibility of a preferential trade agreement between the two sides. The study, commissioned by the Foreign Trade Association, was carried out by CEPS, in cooperation with the World Trade Institute (WTI) at the University of Bern. Jacques Pelkmans, CEPS Senior Research Fellow, served as overall study leader and Joseph Francois, Managing Director and Professor of...

  14. Britain’s Future in Europe: The known Plan A to remain or the unknown Plan B to leave. CEPS Paperback 2nd Ed., March 2016

    Graham Avery, Graham Avery; Miroslav Beblavý, Miroslav Beblavý; Arno Behrens, Arno Behrens; Steven Blockmans, Steven Blockmans; Hugo Brady, Hugo Brady; Michael Emerson, Michael Emerson; Daniel Gros, Daniel Gros; Alzbeta Hájková, Alzbeta Hájková; Karel Lannoo, Karel Lannoo; Adam Łazowski, Adam Łazowski; Jorge Núñez Ferrer, Jorge Núñez Ferrer; Steve Peers, Steve Peers; Michael Wriglesworth, Michael Wriglesworth
    Following the agreement made by Prime Minister David Cameron with the EU on 18-19 February 2016, the day for the referendum for the UK to remain in or leave the EU is set for 23 June 2016. This will be the most important decision taken by the British people in half a century, and whose consequences will live on for another half century. The first edition of this book, published in March 2015, laid the foundations for any objective assessment of the workings of the EU and the UK’s place in it. It was widely acclaimed and rated as “a myth-breaking...

  15. Irregular Migration, Trafficking and Smuggling of Human Beings: Policy Dilemmas in the EU. CEPS Paperback, 22 February 2016

    Guild, Elspeth; Carrera, Sergio; Allsopp, Jennifer; Andrijasevic, Rutvica; Collyer, Michael; Dimitriadi, Angeliki; Jokinen, Anniina; Leerkes, Arjen; Manieri, Maria Giovanna; Muraszkiewicz, Julia; Ruete, Matthias; Spena , Alessandro; Spencer, Sarah
    The expert contributors to this edited volume, representing a multidisciplinary selection of academics, examine the treatment of irregular migration, human trafficking and smuggling in EU law and policy. The various chapters explore the policy dilemmas encountered in efforts to criminalise irregular migration and humanitarian assistance to irregular immigrants. The book aims to provide academic input to informed policy-making in the next phase of the European Agenda on Migration. In his Foreword, Matthias Ruete, Director General of DG Home Affairs of the European Commission, writes: “This initiative aims to stimulate evidence-based policy-making and to bring fresh thinking to develop more effective policies....

  16. Banking Union as a Shock Absorber: Lessons for the eurozone from the US. CEPS Paperback, December 2015

    Gros, Daniel.; Belke, Ansgar
    This book illustrates how the structure of the US banking market and the existence of federal institutions allowed regional financial shocks to be absorbed at the federal level in the US, thus avoiding local financial crisis. The authors argue that the experience of the US shows the importance of a ‘banking union’ to avoid severe regional (national) financial dislocation in the wake of regional boom and bust cycles. They also discuss the extent to which the institutions of the partial banking union, now in the process of being created for the euro area, should be able to increase its capacity...

  17. The Great Financial Plumbing: From Northern Rock to Banking Union. CEPS Paperback, 19 October 2015

    Lannoo, Karel.
    The financial and economic crises have led to an enormous plumbing exercise, involving a fundamental re-design of the global and European regulatory and supervisory system. This book systematically assesses the big items on the G-20 and EU agendas and the effectiveness with which they have been implemented in the EU. Its publication coincides with the demand by European Commissioner Jonathan Hill, in the context of the Capital Markets Union, for a 'comprehensive review' of the impact and coherence of EU legislation in the area of financial services. Karel Lannoo argues in the book that much has been done by European policy-makers...

  18. The Political Economy of the 2014-2020 Common Agricultural Policy: An Imperfect Storm. CEPS Paperback, 17 August 2015

    Anania, Giovanni; Balmann, Alfons; Buckwell, Allan; Bureau, Jean-Christophe; De Castro, Paolo; Di Mambro, Angelo; Erjavec, Emil; Erjavec, Karmen; Fertő, Imre; Garrone, Maria; Haniotis, Tassos; Hart, Kaley; Josling, Timothy E.; Knops, Louise; Kovacs, Attila; Lovec, Marko; Mahé, Louis-Pascal; Matthews, Alan; Moehler, Rolf; Olper, Alessandro; Pacca, Lucia; Potočnik, Janez; D’Andrea, Maria Rosaria Pupo; Roederer-Rynning, Christilla.; Sahrbacher, Amanda; Sahrbacher, Christoph; Swinbank, Alan; Swinnen, Johan
    After five years of debates, consultations and negotiations, the European institutions reached an agreement in 2013 on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for the 2014-2020 period. The outcome has major implications for the EU’s budget and farmers’ incomes but also for Europe’s environment, its contribution to global climate change and to food security in the EU and in the world. It was decided to spend more than €400 billion during the rest of the decade on the CAP.The official claims are that the new CAP will take better account of society's expectations and lead to far-reaching changes by making subsidies...

  19. The South Caucasus - Between integration and fragmentation

    Chiragov, Fuad; Gasimli, Vusal; Kakachia, Kornely; Karimov, Reshad; Makarychev, Andrey; Mammadov, Farhad; Ögütçü, Mehmet; Pashayeva, Gulshan; Paul, Amanda; Sammut, Dennis; Shiriyev, Zaur; Veliyev, Cavid
    The South Caucasus is situated at the intersection of Eurasia’s major transport and energy corridors, making it an important geostrategic region. Traditional regional actors Iran, Turkey and Russia have jostled for influence and power in the region for centuries, and are now faced with competition from the EU, China, the US and NATO. Although Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia have been independent for more than two decades, they still continue to feel the sway, and sometimes threat, of external actors. As a response, the three South Caucasus states have chosen very different geostrategic paths since the collapse of the Soviet Union,...

  20. Money, Finance and the Real Economy: What went wrong? CEPS Paperback, 17 March 2015

    Brender, Anton; Pisani, Florence; Gagna , Emile
    The functions of the financial system of a developed economy are often badly understood. This can largely be attributed to free-market ideology, which has spread the belief that leaving finance to its own devices would provide the best possible mechanism for allocating savings. The latest financial crisis has sparked the beginnings of a new awareness on this point, but it is far from having led to an improved understanding of the role of the financial institutions. For many people, finance remains more an enemy to be resisted than an instrument to be intelligently exploited. Its institutions, which issue and circulate...
