JCMS |

Recently, the European Commission announced plans for ‘a robust, efficient and fair tax framework’ that should get business taxation up to speed with the 21st century. It includes proposals for a single set of corporate tax rules in the EU with ‘fairer allocation of taxing rights between Member States’, greater public tax transparency and a […]

How does the ‘Migration Crisis’ impact on EU Relations with African Countries?

JCMS |

In 2015, the EU declared a ‘migration crisis’ and signalled an intention to take swift and determined action in response to migrant deaths in the Mediterranean. By the end of 2015, the number of migrant arrivals and first-time asylum applicants in the EU reached over 1.25 million applications. The notion of crisis became firmly entrenched […]

The European Decade of Crises - Responsiveness and Responsibility

JCMS |

The last decade for Europe is one that was marked by multiple crises. Between 2009 and 2019, the term austerity dominated every discussion about the economy. The dominance of austerity in the Eurozone crisis years created the impression that there was something fundamentally different compared to previous episodes of politics in hard times. While in […]

It has been particularly so in the case of Euroscepticism on the left. However, in a recent article for the Journal of Common Market Studies, […]

Populist Radical Right in the European Parliament: a New Force?

JCMS |

Recent years have seen a rise of populist radical right (PRR) forces across Europe. Inside the current European Parliament (EP), they make up almost a third of MEPs, more than doubling their seat share in a decade. This increase in representation reflects growing public scepticism towards European integration. Still, ideological divergences have so far prevented […]

The German 'traffic light' coalition: no commitment to stronger spending powers for the EU

Tiziano Zgaga |

With the new ‘traffic light’ government in Germany, one could have expected a game changer in Germany’s approach to fiscal integration. Instead, the coalition agreement is a compromise between maintaining the old fiscal regulatory framework and showing some moderate opening towards new European spending powers. The coalition agreement of the new German government led by […]

The Wider Europe: a time for experiments

Andrew Duff |

The next steps in the EU’s constitutional development must involve greater care for the wider Europe, Andrew Duff argues. He proposes the introduction of a new category of EU affiliate membership, allowing the EU’s western and eastern neighbours alike to become stable and reliable partners. One of the more diverting exercises in literary criticism during […]
