EMU reform and the ‘new normal’ for monetary policy

29-11-2018

The European Central Bank may already be facing the next crisis in the euro area but is still deploying the tools of unconventional monetary policy from the last crisis. This brief looks at the ECB as an institution amongst institutions and shows how even more unconventional approaches will not help the euro area economy. Additionally, given the complexity of money and the effects of expectations, expanding the ECB’s unconventional arsenal is likely to have deleterious consequences across Europe. ...

27-07-2018

The results of the public consultation clearly suggest - EU citizens want action. Citizens call for an action that wold turn their EU right to good administration into solution. The workable and enforceable solution that adds value. Europe needs innovation! Innovation not only in tools and technologies but also in how EU governs itself.

Subsidiarität: Mechanismen für die Kontrolle der Einhaltung

12-07-2018

Gemäß dem Subsidiaritätsprinzip müssen Entscheidun-gen auf der niedrigsten praktikablen Regierungsebene getroffen werden, ohne dabei jedoch die für alle Seiten positive Zusammenarbeit auf supranationaler Ebene zu gefährden. In den vergangenen Jahrzehnten gab es Bemü¬hun¬gen zur Stärkung des Subsidiaritätsprinzips in der EU-Gesetzgebung, einschließlich des bekannten Frühwarn¬mechanismus für nationale Parlamente. Dennoch ist Subsidiarität weiterhin ein umstrittenes Konzept. Dies wirkt sich nachhaltig ...

Gemäß dem Subsidiaritätsprinzip müssen Entscheidun-gen auf der niedrigsten praktikablen Regierungsebene getroffen werden, ohne dabei jedoch die für alle Seiten positive Zusammenarbeit auf supranationaler Ebene zu gefährden. In den vergangenen Jahrzehnten gab es Bemü¬hun¬gen zur Stärkung des Subsidiaritätsprinzips in der EU-Gesetzgebung, einschließlich des bekannten Frühwarn¬mechanismus für nationale Parlamente. Dennoch ist Subsidiarität weiterhin ein umstrittenes Konzept. Dies wirkt sich nachhaltig auf die gesetzgebenden, politischen und gerichtlichen Stellen aus, die die Einhaltung des Prinzips kontrollieren. In diesem Zusammenhang haben Beobachter ein besseres (und gemeinsames) Verständnis des Prinzips gefordert und eine Reihe von Vorschlägen erarbeitet, wie seine Einhaltung wirksamer kontrolliert werden kann.

Impact Assessment of possible action at EU level for an open, efficient and independent EU administration

12-07-2018

The fragmentation of EU administrative law impinges on the EU’s ability to consistently uphold standards of good governance and administration, as well as to protect citizens’ rights when they interact with the administration. The impact assessment analyses what action could be taken to guarantee an open, efficient and independent EU administration. It compares the option of “doing nothing” with two alternative policy options. The study concludes that adopting a regulatory framework for administrative ...

The fragmentation of EU administrative law impinges on the EU’s ability to consistently uphold standards of good governance and administration, as well as to protect citizens’ rights when they interact with the administration. The impact assessment analyses what action could be taken to guarantee an open, efficient and independent EU administration. It compares the option of “doing nothing” with two alternative policy options. The study concludes that adopting a regulatory framework for administrative procedures would be the preferred option, since it would lead to clear advantages in terms of cost savings for the public, as well as the accessibility, transparency, legal certainty and predictability as well as the legitimacy of, and trust in, EU institutions. It would also compliment the transition of the EU administration towards e-government and e-administration tools.

Revolving doors in the EU and US

04-07-2018

The flow of officials and politicians between the public and private sector has in the past few years given rise to calls for more transparency and accountability. In order to mitigate the reputational damage to public institutions by problematic use of the 'revolving door', this phenomenon is increasingly being regulated at national level. In the United States, President Trump recently changed the rules put in place by his predecessor to slow the revolving door. As shown by press coverage, the US ...

The flow of officials and politicians between the public and private sector has in the past few years given rise to calls for more transparency and accountability. In order to mitigate the reputational damage to public institutions by problematic use of the 'revolving door', this phenomenon is increasingly being regulated at national level. In the United States, President Trump recently changed the rules put in place by his predecessor to slow the revolving door. As shown by press coverage, the US public remains unconvinced. Scepticism may be fuelled by new exceptions made to the rules – retroactive ethics pledge waivers – and the refusal of the White House to disclose the numbers or beneficiaries of said waivers. Watchdog organisations argue that not only has the Trump administration so far failed to 'drain the swamp', it has ended up doing quite the opposite. In the EU, where revolving door cases are increasingly being covered in the media, both the European Parliament and Commission have adopted Codes of Conduct, regulating the activities of current and former Members, Commissioners, and even staff. The European Ombudsman, Emily O'Reilly, has on numerous occasions spoken out in favour of further measures, such as 'cooling-off periods', and has carried out several inquiries into potentially problematic revolving door cases. Following calls from Parliament, the Juncker Commission adopted a new and stronger Code of Conduct for Commissioners early in 2018. Even so, no one single Code can hope to bring an end to the debate.

The Institutional Consequences of a ‘Hard Brexit’

15-05-2018

This in-depth analysis, commissioned by the European Parliament at the request of the Committee of Constitutional Affairs, considers the institutional, budgetary and policy implications that a so-called ‘hard Brexit’ would pose on the EU. It analyses from a legal perspective how a withdrawal of the UK from the EU without a withdrawal treaty, transition deal and framework on future relations would affect each specific EU Institution, the EU budget for the remaining years of the current MFF, and EU ...

This in-depth analysis, commissioned by the European Parliament at the request of the Committee of Constitutional Affairs, considers the institutional, budgetary and policy implications that a so-called ‘hard Brexit’ would pose on the EU. It analyses from a legal perspective how a withdrawal of the UK from the EU without a withdrawal treaty, transition deal and framework on future relations would affect each specific EU Institution, the EU budget for the remaining years of the current MFF, and EU policies in the crucial fields of trade, security and justice. While the study does not endorse a ‘hard Brexit’ it provides guidelines for the EU to be prepared in case such scenario were to materialise.

Dies ist der erste EU-Ausblick zu Frieden und Sicherheit, der vom Wissenschaftlichen Dienst des Europäischen Parlaments (EPRS) ausgearbeitet wurde. Die Reihe ist dazu gedacht, den Beitrag zu untersuchen und zu erläutern, den die Europäische Union durch ihre verschiedenen außenpolitischen Maßnahmen auf internationaler Ebene zur Förderung von Frieden und Sicherheit leistet. Die Studie bietet einen Überblick über den Themenbereich und den gegenwärtigen Stand der Dinge. Zunächst werden das Konzept des Friedens und das sich wandelnde geopolitische Umfeld in Augenschein genommen. Dann werden die zentrale Bedeutung der Förderung von Frieden und Sicherheit im Rahmen des auswärtigen Handelns der EU dargelegt und die praktische Verfolgung dieser Grundsätze in drei Hauptbereichen der EU-Politik analysiert: Entwicklung, Unterstützung der Demokratie sowie Sicherheit und Verteidigung. Die Studie schließt mit einem Ausblick auf die Zukunft. Im Mittelpunkt einer getrennt veröffentlichten Parallelstudie stehen die Bemühungen der EU zur Friedenskonsolidierung im westlichen Balkan. Die Studien wurden mit dem Ziel verfasst, sie auf dem Normandy World Peace Forum im Juni 2018 zu präsentieren.

How could the Stability and Growth Pact be simplified?

23-04-2018

The complexity of the SGP, which may have contributed to its limited effectiveness, reflects largely the conflict between the need to make the original SGP rules more stringent and the desire to allow flexibility with respect to various country circumstances. Now that the effects of the largest economic shock since the 1930s are fading away, a major simplification of the system could be achieved by removing some margins of flexibility, while possibly relaxing some of the SGP long-term parameters. ...

The complexity of the SGP, which may have contributed to its limited effectiveness, reflects largely the conflict between the need to make the original SGP rules more stringent and the desire to allow flexibility with respect to various country circumstances. Now that the effects of the largest economic shock since the 1930s are fading away, a major simplification of the system could be achieved by removing some margins of flexibility, while possibly relaxing some of the SGP long-term parameters. The coexistence of the MTO rule and the expenditure benchmark could also be reconsidered. A more radical solution would involve shifting to a single rule in which an “operational target” would respond to deviations of public debt from its long-term objective.
