Since April 2015, the European Commission has organised 8 workshops on effective asset disclosure, whistle-blower protection, healthcare corruption, local public procurement, private sector corruption, political immunities, anti-corruption indicators and economic impact of corruption. Firstly, the workshop focused on the most important subjects and assessed the outcome of the Commission workshops. It also tried to know what impact they had on improving effectiveness of competent national authorities in fighting corruption and how should the European Commission should encourage Member States to fight against corruption? The second part of the workshop was devoted to the question on what are the EU and Member States doing to tackle corruption and what are best practices to share at EU level.

International Agreements in Progress: Modernisation of the trade pillar of the EU-Mexico Global Agreement

12-09-2017

Trade relations between the EU and Mexico are currently governed by the trade pillar of the 1997 EU-Mexico Economic Partnership, Political Coordination and Cooperation Agreement (the 'Global Agreement'). Although the current framework for trade relations has functioned adequately, the agreement's trade pillar does not cover new trade issues that have gained in importance in the past two decades, nor does it reflect more recent political and economic developments in the EU and Mexico. The two parties ...

Trade relations between the EU and Mexico are currently governed by the trade pillar of the 1997 EU-Mexico Economic Partnership, Political Coordination and Cooperation Agreement (the 'Global Agreement'). Although the current framework for trade relations has functioned adequately, the agreement's trade pillar does not cover new trade issues that have gained in importance in the past two decades, nor does it reflect more recent political and economic developments in the EU and Mexico. The two parties have for this reason been working on modernising the Global Agreement's trade pillar since 2013, in order to adapt it to the new realities of global trade, geopolitics and investment policies. Through this modernisation, the EU and Mexico are seeking to unlock unfulfilled bilateral trade and investment potential by achieving the highest possible level of liberalisation while also securing better rules for all. Since June 2016, four rounds of negotiations have taken place in which a wide range of topics have been discussed. In the second half of 2017, the pace of negotiations is set to accelerate as both parties are eager to reach an agreement before the end of the year.

Nicaragua's post-electoral situation

06-12-2016

The landslide victory of Daniel Ortega and his Sandinista National Liberation Front in Nicaragua's 6 November presidential and legislative elections came as no surprise, after the main opposition alliance – whose presidential team had been disqualified by the Supreme Court of Justice – withdrew from the contest. Both the opposition and the international community are worried that the country could drift towards an authoritarian regime.

ASEAN: building an Economic Community

03-12-2014

In 2007 the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) decided to move towards closer integration by establishing an ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) by 2015 as one of its three pillars (the other two being the Political-Security and Socio-Cultural Communities). What will this mean and to what extent will the AEC resemble the EU's Single Market?

ASEAN: building a Political-Security Community

02-12-2014

Since its inception in 1967, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has been a key foreign policy and security player in the region. Like the EU, it has helped to bring stability to a formerly turbulent region. In an effort to put cooperation on a more structured basis, ASEAN's 2007 Charter establishes a Political-Security Community as one of the organisation's three pillars (the other two being the Economic and Socio-Cultural Communities).

International cooperation in south-east Asia

01-12-2014

ASEAN is southeast Asia's equivalent of the EU – an organisation which promotes regional peace and prosperity through economic and political integration. There are also several other international organisations active in the region, some established by ASEAN, others independent of it.

The EU's Black Sea Policy: Where Do We Stand?

13-09-2013

In January 2011 the European Parliament adopted a resolution calling for the European Commission and the then-soon-to-be-launched European External Action Service to prepare an EU strategy for the Black Sea region. This initiative was meant to dovetail with other EU basin-focused strategies in Europe. Given that the EU's Black Sea Synergy, the ad hoc policy in place since 2007, was being implemented at a slow pace, the Parliament's request was also intended to amplify the EU’s political presence ...

In January 2011 the European Parliament adopted a resolution calling for the European Commission and the then-soon-to-be-launched European External Action Service to prepare an EU strategy for the Black Sea region. This initiative was meant to dovetail with other EU basin-focused strategies in Europe. Given that the EU's Black Sea Synergy, the ad hoc policy in place since 2007, was being implemented at a slow pace, the Parliament's request was also intended to amplify the EU’s political presence in the region. Today, less than a year before the end of the legislature, the EU Black Sea strategy has still not been drafted. Are the Commission and EEAS simply ignoring Parliament’s political advice? In fact, the reasons for the impasse are multiple, stemming from the complications of the Black Sea region as well as the EU's organisational choices. Ultimately, however, these reasons matter less than the outcome. The EU's Black Sea policy – by definition an inclusive policy – should be advanced under one label or another, as it is neither a threat nor a complement to the Eastern Partnership. Both policies should be developed in parallel. And before the EU advances to a new stage, it should first implement those measures it has promised, but yet to realise.
