Against the backdrop of new and unprecedented crises and challenges, the advantages of coordinated approaches and effective cross-border responses are all the more evident, and gaining support among Europeans, as shown by recent Eurobarometer surveys. In this context, EU complementary executive capacity could be a way of meeting citizens' expectations, through complementing, without replacing, the executive capacities of the Member States. The concept of complementary EU executive capacity dovetails ...

Citizens' expectations regarding European Union (EU) policy involvement and spending in healthcare and economic growth were already increasing before the coronavirus pandemic. These rising expectations created a gap between their demands and their evaluation of current EU action. At the same time, trust in the EU is at its highest level for a decade, and higher than the average level of trust in national governments.

Partant du principe que le traité de Lisbonne servira de cadre pour l’action de l’Union dans un avenir prévisible, la présente étude examine les possibilités ...

Parmi les mesures visant à promouvoir un changement vers des choix plus respectueux de l’environnement figure la fiscalité environnementale, en complément des autres instruments disponibles pour effectuer l’adaptation nécessaire pour faire face aux défis environnementaux et climatiques.

La Communauté européenne a été fondée sur la conviction que l’intégration économique conduit à la paix et à la prospérité économique. Le commerce est donc un élément fondamental de l’identité de l’Union européenne actuelle. Compte tenu du succès du marché intérieur, qui a favorisé la plus longue période de paix de l’histoire moderne de l’Europe, l’Union européenne se considère comme un exemple des avantages qu’offrent le commerce, la mondialisation et l’ouverture économique. La politique commerciale ...

Investment protection continues to be a controversial issue, as shown in particular during the negotiations on the EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).
