The European Parliament's evolving soft power - From back-door diplomacy to agenda-setting: Democracy support and mediation

27-09-2019

For the past 40 years, Members of the European Parliament have been working at boosting Parliament's role in EU foreign policy. These efforts have continued to be stepped up since the launch of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) in 1993. Over recent decades, the European Parliament has significantly raised its profile as a credible moral force with strong focus on strengthening human rights, supporting democracy and enhancing the rule of law worldwide.

For the past 40 years, Members of the European Parliament have been working at boosting Parliament's role in EU foreign policy. These efforts have continued to be stepped up since the launch of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) in 1993. Over recent decades, the European Parliament has significantly raised its profile as a credible moral force with strong focus on strengthening human rights, supporting democracy and enhancing the rule of law worldwide. Perhaps less visible than the European Parliament's Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought, the European Parliament's democracy support activities are part of its 'soft-power' approach to international relations. Moreover, Parliament can convey messages through channels that are different from, and complementary to, those employed by the EU's traditional diplomatic players; for example, through its parliamentary networks. Parliament also enjoys Treaty-based information and consultation rights, which allow its Members to shape the EU's external policies. In addition, the European Parliament has become a public forum for debating with representatives of partner countries and international organisations, as well as influential non-state actors. MEPs pro-actively engage in inter-parliamentary delegations and missions to third countries as well as joint parliamentary assemblies. Moreover, parties in different countries often share strong links via their political families.

Subdued Inflation, Targets and Monetary Policy Cooperation

16-09-2019

This paper examines the case that there has been a structural change in the determination of inflation in the EU (and elsewhere) that has led to a low real-wages, low inflation, slow productivity growth regime. In fact, there appears to have been no structural change. Instead, there has been a marked convergence between the performance of those variables in national economies. The implication is that there is little scope for greater monetary coordination in the conventional sense, or adjusting the ...

This paper examines the case that there has been a structural change in the determination of inflation in the EU (and elsewhere) that has led to a low real-wages, low inflation, slow productivity growth regime. In fact, there appears to have been no structural change. Instead, there has been a marked convergence between the performance of those variables in national economies. The implication is that there is little scope for greater monetary coordination in the conventional sense, or adjusting the monetary rules (e.g., targets), since this uniformity is the origin of the low inflation problem. Outcomes can be improved with better coordination of monetary policy with non-monetary variables. There are two lines of attack. One is a short term approach using conventional instruments (monetary-fiscal, structural or labour market reforms, improving policymakers’ credibility). The other is a long term approach based on improved income distribution, a better distribution of the gains from productivity growth, and stabilisation by means of an external anchor (exchange rate).

Draghi’s Term as ECB President and the Challenges Ahead

16-09-2019

Mario Draghi took over as ECB President at a time of recession for the euro area economy and widespread concerns about whether the euro project could be sustained. The years since have seen an easing of fears of the euro breaking up and the economy recover without triggering inflation above its target level. As such, his presidency must be judged a success. Draghi’s achievements go beyond the successful implementation of monetary policy. He also played a key role in encouraging Banking Union and ...

Mario Draghi took over as ECB President at a time of recession for the euro area economy and widespread concerns about whether the euro project could be sustained. The years since have seen an easing of fears of the euro breaking up and the economy recover without triggering inflation above its target level. As such, his presidency must be judged a success. Draghi’s achievements go beyond the successful implementation of monetary policy. He also played a key role in encouraging Banking Union and other important institutional reforms. The new ECB President faces a difficult set of challenges. The ECB is not meeting its inflation target; inflation expectations are falling; and there are signs of economic weakness. Like Draghi, the next President will require strong communications, diplomatic and political skills to face these challenges successfully.
