EU on the Move

2019 is a year of change and reflection for the European Union as it prepares to welcome the new President of the European Commission and a new body of commissioners on November 1. All eyes are on Brussels as analysts predict the next five years of European policy, both foreign and domestic. How should the new Commission move forward on key issues such as promoting election security in the digital age? What steps can the member states take to address migration amidst international pressure and the urgent crisis in Libya? How should the EU address the climate crisis under the spotlight of environmental activism across Europe? How will the new agenda affect policy-making within Europe and overseas?

At the same time, the EU’s new leadership will also confront a shifting global political order where mounting tensions between major players in China, Russia, and the US create uncertainty for the future of international cooperation, and the influence of Europe’s “soft power.” What strategies must this Commission adopt to advance European interests in this polarized political climate, and what role should the EU play on the shifting world stage?

U.S. vs. China? Cooperation in Telecommunications in East Africa

mai 3, 2022 Non classé

Some Western political strategists suggest a “Tech Cold War” is playing out in Africa between China and the U.S. Based on case studies from Ethiopia and Kenya, this perspective neglects the actual state of affairs. Instead of searching for “China-free” actors, the West should take the rationale of each project as a yardstick to stay engaged and relevant in the emerging African information and communications technology sector.

Achieving Integration for Immigrants in Iceland

novembre 10, 2021 Non classé

Despite introducing ground-breaking social policies, Iceland lacks a cohesive approach to ensure the successful integration of immigrants. This group is left unprotected against hidden discrimination in the housing, employment, and education sectors. The successful integration of immigrants should involve treating them as agents of positive change in society.
