Argentina: Political parties and the EU

03-09-2015

Argentina's presidential elections are scheduled for October 2015 and, according to the country's Constitution, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner is not entitled to run for a third consecutive term. As regards alternative candidates, the political landscape remains polarised after the primary elections. Argentina has a multi-party political system; however, election results demonstrate that it is, in practical terms, bipartisan.

Argentina's presidential elections are scheduled for October 2015 and, according to the country's Constitution, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner is not entitled to run for a third consecutive term. As regards alternative candidates, the political landscape remains polarised after the primary elections. Argentina has a multi-party political system; however, election results demonstrate that it is, in practical terms, bipartisan. The Peronists, represented by the Justicialist Party (PJ), and the radicals, represented by the Civic Radical Union (UCR), effectively alternate in power. Argentinian political decision-making is opaque, complex and volatile. Parties play for power in changing coalitions, splits and mergers, which lead to a constantly changing political landscape of alliances.

Paraguay: Political parties

03-09-2015

Paraguay has a multi-party system with two main parties – the Colorados and the Liberals – and other small parties and alliances. After 61 years in power, the Colorados, the world's longest-ruling party, lost the 2008 elections to the Liberals. Nonetheless, in April 2013, they returned to power.

Guatemala: Political parties

03-07-2015

Guatemala's next presidential and legislative elections are scheduled for September 2015. The current President, Otto Pérez Molina, cannot run for a second term, according to Guatemala's Constitution. At this juncture, the political situation remains quite unstable. Two big issues are likely to dominate: young people and how to keep up the fight against corruption and organised crime.

The Added Value of EU policy in Education: European Added Value in Action

18-03-2015

In recent years, the EU has developed a European dimension to education, notably in the area of higher education, where it has stimulated mobility of students and teachers. In the last two decades, major progress has also been made in harmonizing university degree structures and increasing the compatibility of higher education systems. The benefits of the support given to education at a Union level derive from the cross-border character of the activities in the field, which are additional to those ...

In recent years, the EU has developed a European dimension to education, notably in the area of higher education, where it has stimulated mobility of students and teachers. In the last two decades, major progress has also been made in harmonizing university degree structures and increasing the compatibility of higher education systems. The benefits of the support given to education at a Union level derive from the cross-border character of the activities in the field, which are additional to those developed at national or regional levels. It is worth noting that only EU programmes guarantee that all Member States benefit from mobility and exchange of good practices in the area while ensuring optimal dissemination of results. Hence, EU action in the ground is a way of filling in the missing links, avoiding fragmentation and realising the potential of a border-free Europe. In practical terms, the implementation of programmes by the EU offers better value for money and economies of scale - than a series of wholly bilateral relations between Member States in this field would allow- because externalities can be addressed, resources or expertise pooled, and action better coordinated. This ‘At a Glance’ publication is part of a series of summaries of the added value of existing EU policies in practice. Previous publications in this series include summaries of the benefits of the European single market and the added value of EU action in the field of mobile telephone roaming charges.

European Added Value in Action: The Added Value of EU Policy for Airline Services and Air Passenger Rights

15-11-2013

Part of a series of fact sheets on "European Added Value in Action", this note succinctly presents the added value brought by the single market for air passenger services in Europe. Specific policies have been pursued at European level to open up the previously fragmented and largely protected national aviation markets which existed in the EU member states. In the process, they have helped to widen consumer choice, reduce some air fares and enhance the efficiency of the European economy as a whole ...

European Added Value in Action: The Added Value of the European Single Market

14-06-2013

Part of a series of fact sheets on "European Added Value in Action", this note succinctly presents the added value brought by the European single market as the largest, barrier-free, common economic space in the industrialised world. It gives some historic background on its introduction and development, describes its macro-economic impact, details its benefits in specific sectors -such as airline services or the energy sector-, and describes the opportunities it has brought to citizens.

It gives some historic background on its introduction and development, describes its macro-economic impact, details its benefits in specific sectors -such as airline services or the energy sector-, and describes the opportunities it has brought to citizens. Finally, the fact sheet refers to the short-comings of the single market and the need for further work in order to bring it to its full potential.

L’energia e le politiche strutturali e di coesione

15-06-2006

Il contesto energetico in cui si vedono calate le politiche strutturali e di coesione è uno scenario complesso che richiede un’interazione fra tutte le sinergie presenti in modo da fare della politica energetica europea una politica efficiente, competitiva e sicura in termini di approvvigionamento. Considerando le ripercussioni derivate dall’incremento dei prezzi dei combustibili, si può notare come numerose politiche, fra cui la politica agricola, quella dei trasporti, quella della pesca e quella ...

Il contesto energetico in cui si vedono calate le politiche strutturali e di coesione è uno scenario complesso che richiede un’interazione fra tutte le sinergie presenti in modo da fare della politica energetica europea una politica efficiente, competitiva e sicura in termini di approvvigionamento. Considerando le ripercussioni derivate dall’incremento dei prezzi dei combustibili, si può notare come numerose politiche, fra cui la politica agricola, quella dei trasporti, quella della pesca e quella regionale, ne sono direttamente toccate. La presente nota vuole esaminare le implicazioni, le sfide e le proposte che influiscono sulle politiche strutturali e di coesione nel quadro dell’attuale politica energetica.
