Single Resolution Mechanism - Main Features, Oversight and Accountability

16-07-2019

One of the key lessons learned from the financial crisis in 2007-2008 is that in order to reduce the direct and indirect costs of bank failures for national governments, one has to have a credible framework in place to deal with banks’ failures, including clear rules as to the allocation of losses and the conditions attached to the use of common resources, to provide strong incentives for taking measures of precaution in good times and minimise losses in times of crisis. To that end, Europe has put ...

One of the key lessons learned from the financial crisis in 2007-2008 is that in order to reduce the direct and indirect costs of bank failures for national governments, one has to have a credible framework in place to deal with banks’ failures, including clear rules as to the allocation of losses and the conditions attached to the use of common resources, to provide strong incentives for taking measures of precaution in good times and minimise losses in times of crisis. To that end, Europe has put together a framework for resolving banks in difficulties. That framework is the Single Resolution Mechanism, headed by an European agency, the Single Resolution Board (SRB), based on Regulation 806/2014 and comprising all national resolution authorities of the Member States participating in the Banking Union.

The financing of the ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)

11-09-2017

Threatening both its caliphate project and its sources of funding, the series of military setbacks that the so-called Islamic State group (IS) as suffered for several months have called into question the group’s very existence. That is not to say that its offensive capabilities will be neutered – the organisation will remain able to employ ’low-cost‘ terrorist attacks to target civilians throughout the Middle East, Africa, Europe, America or Asia. In mobilising Member States to fight against terrorism ...

Threatening both its caliphate project and its sources of funding, the series of military setbacks that the so-called Islamic State group (IS) as suffered for several months have called into question the group’s very existence. That is not to say that its offensive capabilities will be neutered – the organisation will remain able to employ ’low-cost‘ terrorist attacks to target civilians throughout the Middle East, Africa, Europe, America or Asia. In mobilising Member States to fight against terrorism, the European Parliament’s role is crucial. Individually, Member States have an important part to play in effectively implementing common decisions. Their varying levels of engagement, as well as the progress they have made in confronting the financing of terrorism and especially IS, should be considered. An annual reporting framework should be put into place to better evaluate the measures taken by both Member States and the Commission in this area.

ISIL/Da'esh: From Mosul to Mosul

13-07-2017

In June 2014, ISIL/Da'esh took over the city of Mosul in Iraq, and from there declared the advent of an Islamic State. Three years later, in July 2017, after nine months of battle involving Iraqi security forces, popular militias and Kurdish troops, ISIL/Da'esh has been expelled from its Iraqi stronghold, adding to the past two years' severe territorial losses. This is an important victory; however, it does not yet represent the eradication of a terrorist group that still has many supporters.

Instruments financiers et subventions pour les régions de l’UE

10-05-2017

Les instruments financiers sont de plus en plus utilisés pour le financement des régions de l’Union, outre des subventions plus traditionnelles. Ils peuvent être considérés comme un moyen, en cette ère de restrictions budgétaires, d’utiliser les financements publics de façon optimale. Il est néanmoins essentiel de parvenir à des synergies justes et d’étudier quelle combinaison permet le mieux d’atteindre les objectifs de la politique de cohésion. Il importe d’aborder la question de la palette appropriée ...

Recherche pour la commission TRAN - Les difficultés liées au financement de l’infrastructure dans l’économie du partage

04-05-2017

La présente étude analyse les perturbations engendrées par la mobilité partagée en ce qui concerne le financement de l’infrastructure des transports. Tout en reconnaissant les avantages de la mobilité partagée en matière de diminution de l’utilisation des voitures particulières, cette étude détermine des éventuelles conséquences négatives à court terme sur les chiffres d’affaires des companies d’autocars et de transport ferroviaire longue distance. Elle signale également d’autres risques potentiels ...

La présente étude analyse les perturbations engendrées par la mobilité partagée en ce qui concerne le financement de l’infrastructure des transports. Tout en reconnaissant les avantages de la mobilité partagée en matière de diminution de l’utilisation des voitures particulières, cette étude détermine des éventuelles conséquences négatives à court terme sur les chiffres d’affaires des companies d’autocars et de transport ferroviaire longue distance. Elle signale également d’autres risques potentiels, comprenant notamment la captation des recettes par l’intermédiaire de commissions facturées par les plateformes de médiation des services de transports publics (service de mobilité à la demande), le parasitisme et la réduction des contributions fiscales. L’étude présente des recommandations pour réduire ces risques.
