Common rules for gas pipelines entering the EU internal market

27-05-2019

In November 2017, the European Commission adopted a legislative proposal to fully apply key provisions of the 2009 Gas Directive to gas pipelines between the European Union (EU) and third countries. Member States would need to cooperate with third countries to ensure full compliance with EU rules. The revised directive was seen by many observers as a part of the broader EU response to the Gazprom-led Nord Stream 2 project, which the European Commission publicly opposes.

In November 2017, the European Commission adopted a legislative proposal to fully apply key provisions of the 2009 Gas Directive to gas pipelines between the European Union (EU) and third countries. Member States would need to cooperate with third countries to ensure full compliance with EU rules. The revised directive was seen by many observers as a part of the broader EU response to the Gazprom-led Nord Stream 2 project, which the European Commission publicly opposes. The Parliament adopted its position on the gas directive in plenary on April 2018, whereas the Council adopted its general approach on 8 February 2019. This was swiftly followed by a single trilogue meeting on 12 February 2019 at which the EU institutions reached a provisional agreement. The agreed text was later formally adopted by Parliament and Council, and entered into force on 23 May 2019. Fourth edition. The ‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

18-03-2019

Die in der Luftqualitätsrichtlinie vorgesehene Überwachung der Luftqualität an festen Orten ist ein wichtiges Instrument, um zu überprüfen, ob die zum Schutz der menschlichen Gesundheit festgelegten Grenz- oder Zielwerte eingehalten werden. In dieser Studie werden die Kriterien für die Wahl der Messstellenstandorte in fünf Mitgliedstaaten analysiert, um unklare Bestimmungen zu ermitteln, die möglicherweise zu unterschiedlichen Beurteilungen der Exposition gegenüber der Luftverschmutzung führen.

Understanding trade balances

08-02-2019

Trade policy discourse on both sides of the Atlantic has recently focused on trade deficits and surpluses. In the United States (US), President Donald Trump has routinely referred to the US trade deficit as a central indicator of the country's economic woes and made its reduction a key objective of US trade policy. In Europe, the world's largest trade surplus, run by Germany, has come under scrutiny. However, focusing on trade balances of exports and imports can be misleading in the trade policy ...

Trade policy discourse on both sides of the Atlantic has recently focused on trade deficits and surpluses. In the United States (US), President Donald Trump has routinely referred to the US trade deficit as a central indicator of the country's economic woes and made its reduction a key objective of US trade policy. In Europe, the world's largest trade surplus, run by Germany, has come under scrutiny. However, focusing on trade balances of exports and imports can be misleading in the trade policy context. Trade balances need to be considered as an integral part of a larger whole, the balance of payments of an economy. The imposition of specific trade policy measures, such as unilateral tariffs, cannot be expected to improve a trade balance significantly.

Konrad Adenauer: Europas Elder Statesman

Konrad Adenauer wurde Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts im Deutschen Kaiserreich geboren. Er wuchs in relativ bescheidenen Verhältnissen auf und machte sich preußische Werte und den christlichen Glauben zu eigen, der ihn Zeit seines Lebens leitete. 1906 übernahm Konrad Adenauer sein erstes politisches Amt als Beigeordneter seiner Heimatstadt Köln. 1909 wurde er Erster Beigeordneter des Stadtrats.

Konrad Adenauer wurde Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts im Deutschen Kaiserreich geboren. Er wuchs in relativ bescheidenen Verhältnissen auf und machte sich preußische Werte und den christlichen Glauben zu eigen, der ihn Zeit seines Lebens leitete. 1906 übernahm Konrad Adenauer sein erstes politisches Amt als Beigeordneter seiner Heimatstadt Köln. 1909 wurde er Erster Beigeordneter des Stadtrats. Im Alter von nur 41 Jahren wurde er dann 1917 zum Kölner Oberbürgermeister gewählt. Mit dem Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs unternahm Konrad Adenauer mehrfach Anstrengungen, um die transnationale Zusammenarbeit mit Deutschlands Nachbarn im Westen zu fördern, was für die damalige Zeit fortschrittlich war. Als der neu gewählte Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler im Februar 1933 die Stadt Köln besuchte, weigerte sich Konrad Adenauer, ihn zu empfangen – infolge dieses Beschlusses wurde er seines Amtes als Oberbürgermeister der Stadt Köln enthoben. Er wurde ins politische Exil gezwungen – in der Folge sogar verhaftet – und verbrachte die folgenden zwölf Jahre mit seiner Familie in seinem Haus in Rhöndorf. Nach der Niederlage des nationalsozialistischen Regimes war Konrad Adenauer entschlossen, eine politische Plattform einzurichten, die die Menschen um die zentralen christlichen und demokratischen Werte vereinen würde. Auf dieser Grundlage wurde er im September 1949 zum ersten Bundeskanzler der Bundesrepublik Deutschland gewählt. Während seiner 14-jährigen Amtszeit als Kanzler der Bundesrepublik Deutschlands hielt Konrad Adenauer entschlossen daran fest, Deutschland in ein wertebasiertes europäisches politisches System einzugliedern. Daher wurden die Aussöhnung mit, die Annäherung an und die Zusammenarbeit mit Frankreich zu den zentralen Zielen der Außenpolitik Adenauers, was die deutsche Politik letztlich bis zum heutigen Tag maßgeblich beeinflusst.

The President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, will deliver his last State of the Union address to the European Parliament on Wednesday 12 September, a little more than eight months before the next European elections. In this annual speech in Strasbourg, President Juncker is expected to take stock of the state of play on his ten priorities for the 2014-2019 political cycle and present his remaining initiatives on building a 'more united, stronger and more democratic Union'. Juncker’s 2017 address was marked by cautious optimism: since then, whilst the European economy has continued to recover, several other challenges have proved persistent. This note offers a selection of links to commentaries, studies and reports from major international think tanks on the state of the EU and possible reforms. Brexit-related publications can be found in a previous edition of 'What Think Tanks are thinking’ from July 2018. Papers on migration are available in an earlier edition in this series, published in June. Those on euro-zone reform appear in a previous publication in June.

Women in CSDP missions

06-12-2017

Promoting women’s participation in CSDP missions and operations is important to sustain EU’s credibility, to improve effectiveness, to promote equality at home and abroad, to increase the talent pool for personnel, and to make the best use of our financial resources. More needs to be done by both member states and the EU to fulfil promises to implement the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.

Promoting women’s participation in CSDP missions and operations is important to sustain EU’s credibility, to improve effectiveness, to promote equality at home and abroad, to increase the talent pool for personnel, and to make the best use of our financial resources. More needs to be done by both member states and the EU to fulfil promises to implement the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. This report looks at three issues that contribute to more inclusion and better effectiveness: First, the structures that promote equality in the security sector institutions within the EU; second, the effects of women’s participation in missions and operations; third, how CSDP structures and EU member states policies could be further adapted to create a working environment that is conducive to both men and women contributing their full potential to better solutions to security challenges. Political commitment and hands-on leadership by the EU and its Member States is key to more diversity and inclusivity in CSDP structures. A pro-active approach to recruitment and retention of female staff, adapted job-descriptions, comprehensive family policies, and employing an approach that values diversity and creates a positive work environment are all necessary in this regard.
