  •  With the population of Africa expected to double by 2050, roughly 22.5 million jobs must be created each year to sustain growth. If the right investments are made today to educate, employ and empower this generation, the continent’s youth can drive growth and job creation that will benefit everyone. Africa could add $15 trillion to its economy over the next 30 years.

    AU-EU 2017 Summit: A summit that must make history

    Amidst an unprecedented migration crisis, new security threats, and rapidly growing populations, it’s no secret that Africa and Europe need a redefined partnership that delivers jobs, growth, and security to both continents, argues Dorine Nininahazwe

The Southern Gas Corridor, a 3,500 kilometers long chain of pipelines starting in Azerbaijan and ending in Italy, is the largest fossil fuels project the EU is currently pursuing in total disregard to Europe’s climate goals and while turning a blind eye to the Azerbaijani regime’s ongoing crackdown on civil society and journalists in the country. It is the same regime that has been found to be operating a slush fund, the so-called Azerbaijani Laundromat, to buy influence among European decision makers, including one member of the EBRD’s board of directors.

Europe’s murky Eastern energy deals

Millions of euros in public money are being invested in large infrastructure projects in the EU’s eastern neighbours in total disregard for Europe’s climate goals, and local communities, writes Manana Kochladze

Similarly, we need to judge how to best integrate the children and young people arriving in Europe, who are eager to build a new home, learn new languages and make new friends. Delivering a future for Europe must mean investing first in children. With Brexit discussions ongoing, the EU is reassessing and reorganising its policies and finances for the future.

Children must be at the heart of debate on Europe’s future

Most people debating the future of Europe think in economic terms. But today we must think about how children in Europe are experiencing their childhood, as that will be the biggest determining factor of our future, writes Jana Hainsworth.

Press conference in the E. Parliament, Strasbourg:  Fulvio Martusciello, MEP (2nd left) and expert on money laundering embezzlement and corruption, Mr. Juan Carlos Galindo (2nd right)

The President of Spanish Anti Money Laundering Association found no evidence of money laundering in “The Kokorev Case”.

On past November 15th, a group of MEPs have held a round table and a press conference in the Strasbourg offices of European Parliament to review and monitor the situation of Vladimir Kokorev

The EU should involve partners in strengthening democratic institutions and civil society. But one cannot artificially “speed up” this process. Such a process takes time. Teaching and preaching has proved to be less effective. Also from the geopolitical point of view, it is in EU/CoE interest to build a real partnership.

EU must continue active interaction with Eastern partners

Beyond the successful efforts in multilateral projects of economic nature, the Eastern Partnership should also involve its partners in strengthening democratic institutions and civil society, argues René van der Linden

The EU’s popularity has been somewhat volatile, but the overall picture is worrying. There was a slight lift in support in the wake of the Brexit referendum, probably because people elsewhere in continental Europe recoiled from the idea of going down the same uncertain route. Since then, pollsters have identified disquieting trends.

Speak up Brussels! It’s time to emphasise the EU’s virtues

This has been a roller-coaster year for Europe. It opened amidst widespread despondency, chiefly over Brexit but also over the rising tide of populism, then perked up when euro-enthusiast Emmanuel Macron was elected to the French presidency, and now is drifting back towards the doldrums
