Les politiques de l’Union – Au service des citoyens: Soutien de l’Union à la démocratie et à la paix dans le monde

28-06-2019

L’Union européenne a été conçue de sorte à constituer un projet d’intégration visant à préserver la paix parmi ses États membres, défi crucial qu’elle relève avec brio depuis plus de 60 ans. En tant que communauté d’États partageant les mêmes idées, l’Union repose également sur des valeurs fondamentales, telles que la démocratie et l’état de droit, qu’elle aspire à promouvoir, aussi bien en son sein qu’en dehors de son territoire, et qui constituent le fil d’Ariane de l’ensemble de ses actions.

L’Union européenne a été conçue de sorte à constituer un projet d’intégration visant à préserver la paix parmi ses États membres, défi crucial qu’elle relève avec brio depuis plus de 60 ans. En tant que communauté d’États partageant les mêmes idées, l’Union repose également sur des valeurs fondamentales, telles que la démocratie et l’état de droit, qu’elle aspire à promouvoir, aussi bien en son sein qu’en dehors de son territoire, et qui constituent le fil d’Ariane de l’ensemble de ses actions. Dans cette perspective, l’Union élabore des politiques spécifiques afin de soutenir la démocratie et la paix dans le monde. Elle tend également à intégrer la quête de la paix et de la démocratie dans toutes les autres actions extérieures qu’elle mène dans des domaines tels que le commerce, le développement, les politiques d’élargissement et de voisinage, sa politique étrangère et de sécurité commune, et les relations politiques et diplomatiques entretenues avec des pays tiers et des institutions multilatérales. L’Union s’est forgée une réputation, d’une part, d’organisation à la puissance douce guidée par une vision normative et, d’autre part, d’acteur œuvrant de manière efficace en faveur de la paix et de la démocratie. Le renforcement de la paix et de la démocratie dans le monde n’a jamais été une tâche aisée, mais le contexte géopolitique actuel pose de nouveaux défis. La multiplication, l’aggravation et la prolongation des conflits, dont certains ont pour théâtre le voisinage immédiat de l’Union européenne, ainsi que l’émergence de menaces nouvelles, telles que le terrorisme ou la prolifération nucléaire, et la crise des systèmes libéraux incitent l’Union à intensifier ses efforts et à en accroître la portée. Ces défis ont également fait naître une nouvelle approche de l’action qui s’appuie sur le concept de «société résiliente», lui-même fondé sur deux piliers se renforçant mutuellement, à savoir la paix et la démocratie, et se sont traduits par l’octroi d’une attention particulière aux États fragiles. Dans ce contexte, des études menées récemment montrent que les citoyens attendent de l’Union qu’elle joue un rôle encore plus actif dans la promotion de la paix et de la démocratie en dehors de son territoire, ce qui devrait certainement renforcer sa détermination à réaliser des avancées supplémentaires dans ces domaines cruciaux. Le présent document est une mise à jour d’une note plus ancienne, publiée avant les élections européennes de 2019.

Countering hybrid threats: EU and the Western Balkans case

06-09-2018

The aim of the workshop, held on 26 February 2018, was to assess and discuss the EU’s approach to hybrid threats in its neighbourhood using the Western Balkans as a case study, in the context of the extensive use of propaganda by Russia and its meddling into several elections and in the aftermath of the 2014 events in Ukraine and the Russian annexation of Crimea. The first speaker, Jean-Jacques Patry, presented the concept of hybrid threat at various levels and the EU approach and measures to tackle ...

The first speaker, Jean-Jacques Patry, presented the concept of hybrid threat at various levels and the EU approach and measures to tackle it, particularly in the Western Balkans. The second speaker, Nicolas Mazzucchi, delivered a presentation on Russia’s declining influence in the Western Balkans (on behalf of Isabelle Facon, who authored the briefing but could not attend the workshop) and added some of his own analysis on energy and cyber issues. The presentations were followed by a debate with members of the Security and Defence Committee of the European Parliament.

The effectiveness and visibility of EU funding in the Western Balkan countries with a special focus on the cross-border cooperation

16-08-2018

This briefing considers the effectiveness and visibility of EU funding in the Western Balkans, Cross-Border Cooperation (CBC) in particular. CBC is reported to have enhanced relations between neighbouring countries at central and regional levels and it has reportedly helped prepare local authorities for eventual management of EU funds. Visibility is reported to be good but it is not known how this translates into public awareness and understanding of EU funding. With IPA II, there is increased emphasis ...

This briefing considers the effectiveness and visibility of EU funding in the Western Balkans, Cross-Border Cooperation (CBC) in particular. CBC is reported to have enhanced relations between neighbouring countries at central and regional levels and it has reportedly helped prepare local authorities for eventual management of EU funds. Visibility is reported to be good but it is not known how this translates into public awareness and understanding of EU funding. With IPA II, there is increased emphasis on outcome monitoring and evaluation, and on visibility and communication. The effects of these and other changes remain to be seen.

Women in the Western Balkans: Gender equality in the EU accession process

18-07-2018

Equality between women and men, or gender equality, is a fundamental right and a common value, recognised by the EU. It has been a component of the European integration project from its outset. Enshrined in the EU Treaties, gender equality forms part of the accession conditions with which candidate and potential candidates from the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia) have to comply.

Equality between women and men, or gender equality, is a fundamental right and a common value, recognised by the EU. It has been a component of the European integration project from its outset. Enshrined in the EU Treaties, gender equality forms part of the accession conditions with which candidate and potential candidates from the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia) have to comply. Investing in gender equality, however, is essential not only as an EU requirement, but for an equal society. Although progress has been noted in these countries as regards gender equality, more work is still required. Equal opportunities would allow EU candidate countries to better tap into the potential and skills of women, and underpin achievements in areas such as economic growth, employment and social cohesion, as well as in peace-building. As part of their preparation for an EU future, the Western Balkan countries have taken steps to advance women's rights in recent years. These include adopting or amending relevant legislation (e.g. criminal and labour laws), elaborating national strategies and action plans, and establishing institutional mechanisms to carry out and monitor relevant policies. Nevertheless, promoting gender equality is often sidelined, and the action taken in this respect is insufficient. Ensuring equality between women and men remains 'unfinished business' in a region where traditional gender roles are deep-rooted and social attitudes and lack of awareness of women's rights are at the core of the problem. This Briefing aims to highlight the EU's efforts to promote gender equality as part of EU enlargement policy, and the way the EU strives to mainstream equality across the board. It also aims to cast light on some major challenges that women face in the Western Balkans, such as their weaker roles in economy and politics, and widespread gender-based violence. This follows up the June 2017 briefing on 'Rights and empowerment of women in the Western Balkans'.

Austria will hold the EU Council Presidency from July to December 2018. Its presidency comes at the end of the Trio Presidency composed of Estonia, Bulgaria and Austria. The last time Austria held the Council Presidency was in 2006. A EUROPE THAT PROTECTS is the motto Austria has chosen for its Presidency. Austria considers that there have been several crises in recent years that have given rise to mistrust in the EU amongst European citizens. This mistrust needs to be addressed. To this end, the Austrian Presidency has announced three main priorities for its term in office: security, competitiveness and stability. On security, it intends to focus on the fight against illegal migration, by securing Europe's external borders, and on the reform of the Common European Asylum System. On competitiveness, it will work on matters related to the digital single market, specifically digitalisation. On stability, it has announced its intention to work towards EU accession of the Western Balkan countries.

Western Balkans [What Think Tanks are thinking]

The European Union’s planned enlargement into the Western Balkans has recently drawn increased attention. In February 2018, the European Commission released its new enlargement strategy, giving a credible accession perspective to the region. The latest impetus came last month, when the Commission proposed opening entry talks with Albania and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

The European Union’s planned enlargement into the Western Balkans has recently drawn increased attention. In February 2018, the European Commission released its new enlargement strategy, giving a credible accession perspective to the region. The latest impetus came last month, when the Commission proposed opening entry talks with Albania and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Presenting the 2018 Communication on the EU enlargement policy to the European Parliament, Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said that the EU needed to eventually accept new members from the Western Balkans to avoid the risk of a new war in the region. Many EU Member States insist that before enlarging, the EU must implement internal reforms. Future members must meet many tough entry criteria. From the Western Balkans, only Croatia has so far joined the EU, in 2013. Accession talks continue with Montenegro and Serbia. Albania and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia are official membership candidates, while Bosnia and Herzegovina remains a potential candidate country, along with Kosovo. This note offers links to reports and commentaries from some major international think-tanks and research institutes on EU enlargement and Western Balkans. More reports on the topic can be found in a previous edition of ‘What Think Tanks are thinking’, published in October 2017.

Le Parlement européen: contexte historique

01-03-2018

Le Parlement européen est né de l’Assemblée commune de la Communauté européenne du charbon et de l’acier (CECA), qui est ainsi devenue l’assemblée englobant les trois communautés européennes supranationales qui existaient à l’époque. Cette assemblée a ensuite pris le nom de «Parlement européen». Au fil des ans, l’institution, dont les députés sont élus directement depuis 1979, a connu de profondes mutations: d’une assemblée composée de membres nommés, elle s’est transformée en un parlement élu qui ...

Research for AGRI Committee - The Interactions between the EU's External Action and the Common Agricultural Policy

07-07-2016

The CAP has been strongly influenced by the EU’s External Actions. The various Enlargements, and trade policies to favour its neighbours to both the East and South, and for its former colonies, have left their mark. However it is external pressures through the GATT/WTO that have had the most defining effect. Current pressures stem from a new generation of Free Trade agreements, the need to reduce agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions, and to respond to Brexit.
