There is an embarrassment of riches that could be discussed this week, even under this heading: from ACTA toreferenda, the issue of the EU seems to be gaining media profile, if not public interest. However, I will focus here on Cameron’s statements about removing free movement for Greek nationals in the event of a withdrawal from the Euro. This seems […]

By Dr Theofanis Exadaktylos My German colleagues were certain: Germany was going to kick Greece out of the euro: but which one? I considered it unprecedented luck being in Berlin on the day of the Greece v. Germany football match for the semis of the Euro 2012 championships, during my participation at the EPSA annual […]
by Dr Maxine David On June 19th, a Russian cargo ship, the Alaed, allegedly carrying military equipment toSyria, was forced to turn back after its London-based insurers, the Standard Club, withdrew cover.

by Dr Jack Holland As those of you who have taken my modules will know, unlike my colleagues, I’m not really one for European Politics.

Clearly the outcome of the elections signals the willingness of the Greeks to remain within the Eurozone and within the European Union […]
Dr Simon Usherwood Yesterday’s elections in Greece and France might be seen as a vindication of what little strategy European leaders have presented to date: the former’s confirmation of New Democracy suggesting a desire to engage with the bailout agenda; the latter opening up the way for a new growth agenda.
