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.

CJEU rules sale of bitcoin exempt from VAT

28-11-2016

EU Arctic Policy in Regional Context

EU Arctic policy has evolved significantly in recent years, culminating in the April 2016 Joint Communication from the European Commission and the HRVP for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

EU Arctic policy has evolved significantly in recent years, culminating in the April 2016 Joint Communication from the European Commission and the HRVP for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. The Communication focuses on the environment and climate change, sustainable development, and peaceful international cooperation, with overarching support for scientific research. This coincides with most of the priorities of the EU’s Arctic Member States, Denmark, Finland and Sweden. The Communication does not focus on security issues or on hydrocarbon development. Arctic oil and gas are not the primary keys to EU energy security, but do play a role, and are important for the EU’s two main suppliers, Norway and Russia – sustainable management of these resources is in the EU’s interest. While the region has been a model for cooperation – Arctic collaboration with Russia continues via multiple mechanisms, despite wider tensions. That it will remain so cannot be taken for granted. The EU supports peaceful Arctic cooperation via multiple mechanisms, including the Arctic Council, the Barents-Euro Arctic Council, and via multiple cross-border collaboration platforms. As the EU becomes increasingly engaged in Arctic issues, continued focus on policy coherence, engagement with other Arctic stakeholders, and the priorities of the region’s citizens will be essential.

Recherche pour la Commission AGRI - Le rôle de la Politique Agricole Commune de l'Union européenne dans la creation d'emplois ruraux

22-04-2016

Cette étude porte sur le rôle de la Politique agricole commune (PAC) de l'Union européenne (UE) dans la création d'emplois ruraux. Une analyse bibliographique systématique et une enquête statistique réalisées tout d'abord à l'échelon de l'UE permettent ensuite de conduire des examens spécifiques à chaque État membre et des études de cas plus détaillées. Dans ses conclusions, l’étude explique en quoi la PAC aide les exploitations de petite taille à subsister et contribue au maintien et au développement ...

Cette étude porte sur le rôle de la Politique agricole commune (PAC) de l'Union européenne (UE) dans la création d'emplois ruraux. Une analyse bibliographique systématique et une enquête statistique réalisées tout d'abord à l'échelon de l'UE permettent ensuite de conduire des examens spécifiques à chaque État membre et des études de cas plus détaillées. Dans ses conclusions, l’étude explique en quoi la PAC aide les exploitations de petite taille à subsister et contribue au maintien et au développement d'activités économiques rurales. Toutefois, les paiements relevant du premier pilier ont des incidences contradictoires sur le taux de chômage et leur capacité de création d'emplois semble limitée. Le second pilier contribue efficacement à la diversification, mais il est difficile d'obtenir des preuves d'effets directs concrets sur l'emploi en raison de l’absence de communication systématique de données pertinentes.
