EUr Policy 1 Year, 6 Months, 3 Weeks, 6 Hours, 26 Minutes ago
This blog has been quiet for a few months, because Germana has been busy doing a maternity cover at Bond, the membership body of UK development agencies, and has given EUr Policy a sort of “sabbatical”. It has been a great experience (act...

EUr Policy 2 Years, 7 Months, 1 Week, 4 Days, 23 Hours, 38 Minutes ago

EUr Policy 3 Years, 9 Months, 2 Weeks, 5 Days, 20 Hours ago

Lisbon means more power to EU Parliament, citizens, but some confusion too NEW
EUr Policy 4 Years, 10 Months, 1 Week, 12 Hours, 55 Minutes ago
The Lisbon treaty has been accused of all sorts of things by its opponents, but there is little doubt that it does include new provisions aimed at making European Union workings more transparent. In my view one the most crucial ones is that the Counc...

No deal in Copenhagen, but hey…energy consumption stops growing NEW
EUr Policy 4 Years, 11 Months, 4 Weeks, 2 Days, 2 Hours, 1 Minute ago
As world leaders leave Copenhagen, where millions of people’s hopes about a fair, absolute and binding deal on climate change were shattered, I think we can all do with some good news to lift our morale. The Joint Research Center of the Europea...

EUr Policy 5 Years, 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 17 Hours, 45 Minutes ago

Why EUr Policy Matters NEW
EUr Policy 5 Years, 1 Month, 1 Week, 2 Days, 2 Hours, 58 Minutes ago
There’s nothing like the combination of the words “policy” and “the EU” that’s more likely to get most people running for the door. Yet EU policy affects issues that matter to people: from product safety to climate...
