BOOK REVIEW EU LAW AND INTEGRATION Twenty years of judicial application of EU Law By Jose Luis Da Cruz Vilanca Hart Publishing ISBN: 978 1 84946 508 3 www.hartpub.co.uk ATTENTION ALL EU WATCHERS! HERE’S A COLLECTION OF ARTICLES TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON THE JUDICIAL APPLICATION OF EU LAW An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers To practitioners and lay people alike, the issue of European Union Law can remain something of an enigma especially with the current controversies bubbling around in the United Kingdom. The substantive law area itself has become an effective compulsory subject for law students so the articles by Jose Luis Da Cruz Vilaca are to be welcomed for their insight into this perplexing and often controversial area. Writing the Foreword, Koen Lenaerts who is Vice President of the ECJ describes these articles from his friend as “of great academic interest in that it presents an overview of EU law that, despite covering a period that goes back more than twenty years, has lost none of its relevance”. Lenaerts goes on to say that da Cruz Vilaca also brings an enrichment of practical experience as a legal practitioner and member of the judiciary. These two attributes make this work of great importance as the UK goes through a tortuous period of self-doubt about the efficacy of the European Union itself and how it is working. All will be revealed (we hope) in 2015 when, no doubt, the issue of continued membership will reach a particular political plateau at the General Election. Meantime we have this most interesting and informative collective of diverse commentaries in five parts which cover EU constitutional law; the EU judicial architecture; individuals’ access to justice; European competition law; and various other aspects of substantive EU law under the heading “Studies on EU Law and Economic Integration”. In view of the continuing discussions about whether any changes can be made to the Treaties it is worth remembering what the author puts forward. He writes that the powers of the Member States to amend the Treaties is limited “by the existence of a hard core of principles of EU Treaty law, which cannot be revised without changing the ‘constitutional’ identity of the Union. He goes on to say that this leads to the conclusion that Member States can no longer be considered as the ‘absolute’ masters of the Treaties’. Much of what da Cruz Vilaca says has been echoed recently by Professor Sir Francis Jacobs in the 14th Annual Lecture of the Law Reform Committee at Inner Temple in November 2014 where he addressed the vexed issue of “The European Courts and the UK- what future? A new role for English courts” and specifically endorsed the point da Cruz Vilaca makes so this issue will run for the politicians! We leave the final word to Lenaerts who recommends this collection to readers “who are looking for a work that covers a wide range of rich and varied ideas in the field of EU law.” It does just that. Thank you.

Briefing Paper "The integration of migrants from outside the EU”
 
00:19
The European Court of Auditors has identified a number of challenges to the integration of migrants from outside the EU into society where further EU action is needed. The challenges are set out in a new Briefing Paper on EU action to support the integration of those living legally in the EU but without EU citizenship, such as people migrating for the purposes of employment, family reunification or research, asylum seekers and refugees. The briefing paper does not cover people residing illegally in the EU. “The long-term impact of the recent inflow of migrants will depend on how well they are integrated into European society. We have identified seven challenges to their integration that need to be addressed by the Member States and the EU,” said Iliana Ivanova, the Member of the European Court of Auditors responsible for the Briefing Paper.

Germany Signs Up to European Union Military
 
04:42
Europe’s strongest nation joins a major military initiative, increases weapons sales to Middle East. wenty-three European Union nations took a major step toward forming a European army on Monday. They agreed to begin planning their defense, spending their money, and selecting their priorities like one large power rather than 23 smaller ones. Not everyone in the EU signed up for this. For some, handing over this much control of their defense was too much. Unlike many other EU treaties, this one has (some) teeth. Nations that don’t pull their weight can be kicked out of this new exclusive club. The agreement requires signatories to regularly increase their defense spending. The Nation wrote that the agreement is “calling for a massive increase in military investment and to pave the way for the deployment of European forces.” The signing ceremony was an “emotional moment” and a “historic moment in European defense,” said EU Foreign Policy and Defense Chief Federica Mogherini. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel called it “a milestone in European development.” This is a major step in these nations working more closely together. So now, when Germany is deciding what to spend its money on, it will do it with the entire EU in mind. These nations will work together on developing weapons, so instead of 23 nations developing 23 tanks, there will be much more pressure to develop a single EU tank. The deal contains quite a few practical steps that will help Europe work together, and you can read more about those in my article “EU Leaders Take ‘Historic’ Step Toward United Military.” This is something that the world should be more concerned about. Articles discussing a united European military are about the possibility of a new military superpower. It is extremely naive to assume such a power would never disagree with the United States. This is also heavily discussed in Bible prophecy. Many prophecies throughout the Bible discuss a united European superpower. It is a really important prophecy to watch for. To learn why and the good news beyond this, read “Why the Trumpet Watches Europe’s Push Toward a Unified Military.” Now another piece of news, more specifically from Germany, this week: German exports to Saudi Arabia and Egypt have quintupled—increased fivefold—in the third quarter of 2017 compared to the same time period last year. The German Economy Ministry disclosed the figures this week after requests from the Left Party. Egypt bought €300 million (us$342.8 million) of weapons in those two months alone, and Saudi Arabia spent €150 million ($171.4 million). The government hasn’t said what it sold to Egypt, but Saudi Arabia likely purchased four patrol boats and 110 military trucks. The Trumpet has long forecast that Germany would increase its involvement in the Middle East, and these kinds of arms sales are a big part of building its alliances and influence there. For more on what’s behind this, read our trends article “Why the Trumpet Watches an Alliance Between Arab Nations and Europe.”

Learning Lessons from Europe's Multiple Crises - Loukas Tsoukalis
 
01:36:10
Europe and the European project were hit by successive crises in recent years, which had a cumulative effect, morphing into an existential crisis for regional integration as a whole. Does the European Union suffer from overstretch? Was the creation of the euro a terrible mistake that is now almost impossible to undo, or is the European project just the victim of collateral damage caused by globalisation and the technological revolution? We first need to understand what went wrong in recent years. But we also need to understand what keeps the Union together in times of big crisis and against the predictions of all kinds of doomsayers. True, the UK has decided to leave, but no other country is looking for the exit to the apparent disappointment of President Trump. Will the more favourable economic and political environment lead to a new relaunching of European integration? ABOUT THE SPEAKER Loukas Tsoukalis has taught in universities in Europe and North America, including Oxford, LSE, Sciences Po in Paris, Athens, College of the Europe, European University Institute in Florence and SAIS Johns Hopkins. He is the author of many books and articles on European integration and international political economy. He has advised the former President of the European Commission and the former President of the European Council. He is the president of Greece’s leading think tank the Hellenic Foundation for European & Foreign Policy ELIAMEP. His latest book In Defence of Europe: Can the European Project Be Savedwas published by Oxford University Press in 2016. Last year, he was visiting professor at the Kennedy School, Harvard University and received the Légion d’honneur of the French Republic for his contribution.

What is the EU? European Federalism Defined

What is European Federalism? Andrew Duff was asked to provide a one sentence definition of European Federalism and in his answer he provided insight into the European Union's current institutional structure. He also provided insight into how the EU's federal structure. The transcript for the interview is typed below. For more on European federalism and insights into the workings of the European Union, stay tuned in this playlist which feature more questions answered by Andrew Duff, the European Union's constitutional specialist. Erika Grey Can you provide a one sentence definition of European Federalism? Andrew Duff Well I think it is about coordinate govern government at different levels addressing the issues of a different scales of complexity, but coordinate with each other so that the center is not supreme. It’s not going to impose itself upon the provincial state levels. I think that is misunderstood. And I thinks it’s misunderstood even in Brussels at present because at present we're in a semi federal pre federal construct. The Commission is obliged to try to coordinate national policy to centralize the coordination of national policies. But I do not think that is federal. that’s not a truly federal solution, in order for there to be one, one has to have something that approximates to a federal government. It is that we haven't got. Historically I think we are in a limbo trapped in a limbo between a con federal system of governance which we may know isn’t working very well. On the one hand and a federal union between prefigured we sort of kind of seen it through the cloud but we haven't got the courage to progress towards it.

Integration for Third Country Nationals in the European Union
 
04:01
BOOK REVIEW INTEGRATION FOR THIRD-COUNTRY NATIONALS IN THE EUROPEAN UNION The Equality Challenge Edited by Sonia Morano-Foadi and Micaela Malena Edward Elgar Publishing Limited ISBN: 978 0 85793 681 3 www.e-elgar.com AN EXCELLENT CONTRIBUTION TO THE LITERATURE ON MIGRATION, INCLUDING REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS WITHIN THE EU An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers The rich vein of background information and the variety of scholarly viewpoints gathered together in this book do shed some light on the problems created by -- and possible solutions to -- the matter of third country nationals migrating and eventually settling within the European Union. The two editors, both academics at Oxford Brookes University have undertaken what must have been a formidable task of assembling articles by 17 leading experts in this field. Many are academics from some of the top universities in Europe, most commonly in law faculties; others occupy a policy-making role within the EU. In the case of several, including Ms. Malena, their professional experience with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) enriches and illuminates the commentary, proving valuable insights into the extremely difficult issues enumerated in this volume. As the subtitle indicates, the theme of equality, with all its ramifications, permeates the commentary throughout. The editors for example, explain in their essay that it was the Amsterdam Treaty and the Tampere agenda the development of European policies on migration and asylum in Europe. In their view, the Tampere agenda stressed equality as the key aspect of third-country nationals' integration, while subsequent EU policy and legislation has emphasized migrants' obligations. Their chapter analyses three distinct models of integration, notably the model which stresses both obligations and rights - we cite this model because we believe it's the one with which most Europeans would agree. The various essays contained in the book are grouped under four broad categories, with most being case studies on, for example, asylum seekers and refugees... economic migrants and long-term residents... and family members. Interestingly, the section on asylum seekers includes an article on the UK's implementation of the EU asylum seekers' reception directive. In all, the book puts forward a number of models of integration and social cohesion in the European context, the variety of which do reflect what is referred to as the fragmented structure of European society. Whatever your views on immigration within the EU, particularly the UK, the issue does require enlightened and fair solutions based on a practical, yet fair-minded political approach emanating from reliable information and research. This book contributes much to achieving that aim. With its extensive footnoting and detailed index, it functions as an excellent research tool for academics and practitioners alike, as well as journalists of course and indeed anyone making serious enquiries into migration and refugee issues.

Gisela Stuart, Christian Ultsch, Ivan Krastev Europe and Its Dissenters Political Salons Thursday, 5 April 2018, 6:00pm - 7:30pm, IWM library What does it take for a politician, who was member of the European Convention and thus actively shaping the vision for a stronger European Union to turn into a passionate advocate for Brexit? What does it take for a German to want to politically divorce Britain from the continent? What does it take for a politician on the left to endorse the Brexit that is usually associated with the conservative right? What went wrong in Europe, so that it became impossible for many to further advocate European integration? What does it take to turn a pro-European into an Eurosceptic? In this in-depth conversation with the Right Honourable Gisela Stuart we will have the chance to get a direct and personal insight into the processess that shape the future of Britain, and the European Union.

The EU and the Fiscal Compact
 
01:22
The 25 EU Member States who signed the Fiscal Compact (Mar 2, 2012), have to ratify it by 1 January 2013. Once a country has ratified the Treaty it has another year, until 1 January 2014, to implement a balanced budget rule in their binding legislation. Only countries with such rule in their legal code by 1 March 2013 will be eligible to apply for bailout money from the European Stability Mechanism (ESM). The EU countries that signed the agreement opted to draft a treaty under public international law, not the EU law. The text of the treaty was written with the European Parliament's financial support. However, the EU is not a signatory to the Fiscal Compact and is not responsible for the content of the article; it contains nonetheless a provision to attempt to incorporate the pact into the Treaties establishing the European Union within 5 years of its entering into force. According to the 218 (11) TFEU (Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union), the EU Parliament could "obtain the opinion of the European Court of Justice as to whether an agreement envisaged is compatible with the provisions of the Treaty." The European Parliament, by applying for an opinion, could effectively give the Court of Justice the chance to remind the European stakeholders of the fundamental social and democratic principles of a European governance committed to the ideal of rule of law.

The Treaty of Rome – 60 years on – why is it cause to celebrate?
 
03:07
60 years ago six European countries signed the Treaty of Rome – creating the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community. It was a key moment, a little over ten years after the end of World War II. And it was the foundation of today’s EU and all its achievements. European unity is a political and economic success story. https://www.deutschland.de/en/topic/politics/germany-europe

Yves Bertoncini on European Solidarity and the Euro Crisis
 
29:24
About the Speech: Solidarity is one of the core principles underpinning EU integration but the Euro crisis has put this to the test. The crisis has exposed conflicting views about how far solidarity should go in the context of currency union and how to balance solidarity with austerity. In his speech, Yves Bertoncini will analyse how EU solidarity has evolved in the context of the crisis. About the Speaker: Yves Bertoncini is Secretary General of the influential French think tank, Notre Europe. He is also an academic, specialising in EU Affairs at the Institut d'Études Politiques and the Corps des Mines, and formerly at the Ecole Nationale d'Administration. He has published numerous books, articles and policy papers on European issues.

EU-funded Project for Young Roma Journalists
 
04:02
Ten young Roma journalists took part in a project from March to August 2012 which provided training on key issues of the European Union and Roma integration. At the same time, the reporters interned in newsrooms and produced articles, radio and television programmes totalling 200 in number. Several reporters received job offers during or after the programme. This project was initiated by the European Commission, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary and the European Parliament, and financed by the European Union. It aimed to help strengthen a community of Roma journalists who are well equipped to report on the issues of the European Union and Roma integration as well as to contribute to an increased coverage of such topics by the Hungarian news media. The project was implemented by the Center for Independent Journalism, Budapest. In this video documentary participants tell us what they gained from the programme.
EU Law - Free Movement of Capital and the Economic and Monetary Union
 
12:25
Under Art. 63 TFEU “all restrictions on the movement of capital…shall be prohibited”. This free movement of capital has vertical and horizontal direct effect as per Sanz de Lera [1995]. The freedom also includes the movement of capital between EU and third countries. Movement of capital is defined in a non-exhaustive list in Directive 88/361. The definition is broad and can include: Loans/ Investments; Heirs of the van Hiltern-van der Heijden [2006] Mortgages; Westdeutsche Landesbank v Stefan [2001] Shares; Test claimants in the FII Group [2006]. There are exceptions to the free movement of capital, the most clear of which is that state's retain the mandate when it comes to direct taxation as per Art. 65. However under Art. 65(3) this cannot be used to justify discrimination based on nationality (Verkooijen [2000]). The further exceptions under Art. 65(1)(b) are that action can be taken to prevent infringement of national law and, in a general sense, this allows for the effective administration of the tax system. Art. 65(3) applies again and there must be a direct link between the action taken the reason identified (ELISA [2007]). There is also a narrow exception in cases of public policy/security and here the measures must be proportional (Scientology International [2000]). The Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) attempted to get started in 1969 but faced trouble in the form of floating exchange rates. Another attempt called the Economic Monetary System was attempted in 1978 but with limited success. The EMU itself had three stages: 1) Completion of the internal market 2) A European System of Central Banks 3) The locking of exchange rates and a single currency There are a number of advantages that theoretically apply to the EMU such as growth and investment but this has to be balanced against the difficulties of the 2008 financial crisis that was arguable exacerbated by the EMU. Nevertheless the EU is keen to double down on integration as seen in the Five President's Report that outlines a plan from 2015-2025. This will have to face the realities of the EMU in a global economy. The ECB has a great degree of independence (Art. 130) and is responsible for monetary policy. It can issue recommendations/opinions and even fines. The ESCB is the collection of national central banks alongside the ECB and seeks to control price stability. Finally the economic health of one Member State can have a knock-on effect on other Member States so attempts are made to co-ordinate economic policy. Multilateral surveillance under Art. 121 as well as the Stability and Growth Pact allows for concerns to be raised at Council level so that warnings and guidelines can be drawn up. There is also an excessive deficit procedure but the effectiveness of both of these mechanisms is questionable.

Mandinka explanation on right to family reunification in Europe by Seedy
 
05:53
The right to family reunification is protected under Articles 9 and 10 of the CRC. Article 9 of the CRC obliges states to ensure that, “a child shall not be separated from his or her parents against their will, except when … such separation is necessary for the best interests of the child”. The first paragraph of Article 10 of the CRC refers directly to this provision and provides that, “applications by a child or his or her parents to enter or leave a State Party for the purpose of family reunification shall be dealt with by States Parties in a positive, humane and expeditious manner”.52 Furthermore,

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: European Union Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ In case you don't find one that you were looking for, put a comment. This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= The European Union (EU) is a political and economic union of 28 member states that are located primarily in Europe. It has an area of 4,475,757 km2 (1,728,099 sq mi) and an estimated population of about 513 million. The EU has developed an internal single market through a standardised system of laws that apply in all member states in those matters (only) where members have agreed to act as one. EU policies aim to ensure the free movement of people, goods, services and capital within the internal market, enact legislation in justice and home affairs and maintain common policies on trade, agriculture, fisheries and regional development. For travel within the Schengen Area, passport controls have been abolished. A monetary union was established in 1999 and came into full force in 2002 and is composed of 19 EU member states which use the euro currency. The EU and European citizenship were established when the Maastricht Treaty came into force in 1993. The EU traces its origins to the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) and the European Economic Community (EEC), established, respectively, by the 1951 Treaty of Paris and 1957 Treaty of Rome. The original members of what came to be known as the European Communities were the Inner Six: Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and West Germany. The Communities and its successors have grown in size by the accession of new member states and in power by the addition of policy areas to its remit. The latest major amendment to the constitutional basis of the EU, the Treaty of Lisbon, came into force in 2009. While no member state has left the EU or its antecedent organisations, the United Kingdom signified an intention to leave after a membership referendum in June 2016 and is negotiating its withdrawal. Covering 7.3% of the world population, the EU in 2017 generated a nominal gross domestic product (GDP) of 19.670 trillion US dollars, constituting approximately 24.6% of global nominal GDP and 16.5% when measured in terms of purchasing power parity. Additionally, all 28 EU countries have a very high Human Development Index, according to the United Nations Development Programme. In 2012, the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Through the Common Foreign and Security Policy, the EU has developed a role in external relations and defence. The union maintains permanent diplomatic missions throughout the world and represents itself at the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, the G7 and the G20. Because of its global influence, the European Union has been described as an emerging superpower.

North American European Free Trade Agreement
 
04:30
North American European Free Trade Agreement By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Talk has arisen of a North American free trade agreement. Such a treaty would supplant the current treaty that Mexico has with the European Union and take the place of treaties currently being negotiated between the USA and EU and between Canada and the EU. Canada, the United States, and Mexico have had their own free trade agreement for nearly twenty years. The argument goes that by negotiating a North American European free trade agreement the North American parties could offer seamless logistics and products with components from any or all of the three parties. A North American European free trade agreement, the argument goes would be more competitive than three separate treaties with Europe by nations that already are partners in a giant free trade zone. North America and Europe face increasing competition from Asia. See our articles, Russian Chinese Energy Agreement and BRICS Development Bank Problems. A rational response might well be a North American European Free Trade Agreement instead of separate agreements between each North American state and the EU. NAFTA According to the NaftaNow web site: The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a comprehensive trade agreement that sets the rules of trade and investment between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Since the agreement entered into force on January 1, 1994, NAFTA has systematically eliminated most tariff and non-tariff barriers to free trade and investment between the three NAFTA countries. It is a formal agreement that establishes clear rules for commercial activity between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. NAFTA is overseen by a number of institutions that ensure the proper interpretation and smooth implementation of the Agreement's provisions. US exports at the beginning of the decade were $248.2 billion to Canada and $163.3 billion to Mexico. These nations have been the top two purchasers of US exports. At the beginning of the decade exports within NAFTA amounted to a third of all US exports. Top exports include machinery, vehicle parts, electrical machinery, mineral fuel and oil, and plastics coming to well over $200 billion a year. The USA exports over $30 billion in agricultural products to its NAFTA partners every year. The European Union The European Union (EU) is both a political and economic union comprised of 27 member states. Unlike North America the EU nations give up a degree of sovereignty in return for membership in the trade zone. EU and North America The GDP of North American nations is around $18 trillion. That of the EU is just under $13 trillion in US dollars. The $31 trillion combined economies of North America and the EU amount to 43% of the world economy (world GDP is just under $71 trillion). The rationale for a combined North American European free trade agreement is clear. Create a free trade zone that includes nearly half of the world economy and stimulate business and economic growth on both sides of the Atlantic. If such a treaty comes to pass it could change international investment strategies for many investors. http://youtu.be/eZLJJLIoJjE

Serbia refuses to abandon Russia because of EU

The Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic met with the US Vice President Joseph Biden in Belgrade on Tuesday. The dialogue between Biden and Nikolic was held behind closed doors. It's content was revealed by the President's press service late at night. Nicolic claimed that the country would not impose sanctions on Russia, even if it's required by the EU foreign policy. He also noted that despite the fact that there is no 'better option for the Serbian citizens than way to the European Union,' he is not ready to sign an interstate document with the self-declared Republic of Kosovo. Biden in his turn pointed out that 'the US does not expect Serbia to make a choice between it and Russia' and supports Serbia in its way to European integration. Biden also had a conversation with the PM Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade, after which the US Vice President set off for Prisitina.

The European Union Explained- What is  EU federalism? An outed Federalist
 
01:13
Federalism is the ideology that drives the European Union. The European Union divides between those who are federalist vs. nationalists. In EU politics the federalists have garnered such criticism that federalism has become the F. Word of EU politics and leading federalists are denying their affiliation with the ideology and the platform. Tune into this interview where Andrew Duff's the leading federalist is posed the question if he would ever deny being a federalist. Andrew Duff attributes his losing his MEP seat to the fact that he is an out of the closet federalist. The transcript of the interview is below, For more on the European federalism and questions posed to Andrew Duff regarding EU federalism, or federalism vs. nationalism within the EU, stay tuned in this playlist. Erika Grey While others shy away and have retreated from being labeled a federalist you are smiling in a photo with a a sign above you that reads, "I am a federalist," and you look rather content in the photo. * If you were in Juncker's and Guys Verhofstadt's shoes at the time of the elections, and running for the commission presidency would you too have avoided being labeled a federalist or denied being one? Andrew Duff No absolutely not I've always been prepared to come out of the closet. and indeed of course as you know I lost my seat in the last elections.

Based on Article 42.6 and Protocol 10 of the Treaty on European Union, introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon in 2009, PESCO was first initiated in 2017. The initial integration within the PESCO format is a number of projects planned to launch in 2018.Together with the Coordinated Annual Review on Defence , the European Defence Fund and the Military Planning and Conduct Capability it forms a new comprehensive defence package for the EU.PESCO is similar to enhanced co-operation in other policy areas, in the sense that integration does not require that all EU member states participate. ------ To see your favorite topic here, fill out this request form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScU0dLbeWsc01IC0AaO8sgaSgxMFtvBL31c_pjnwEZUiq99Fw/viewform ------ Source: Wikipedia.org articles, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license.

Refugees in Europe: a crisis of connection | Dace Dzenovska | TEDxRiga
 
18:10
In the age of mobility, more people are on the move than ever before. Yet many of those who are on the move — the illegal migrants, are dying at sea. Is keeping people in place the best solution to the crisis of migration? Dace Dzenovska wants to take you to a different place — a place of responsible connectedness — from which to think about migration and the current crisis in the Mediterranean. Dace Dzenovska teaches and practices social anthropology at the University of Oxford, UK. Her research focuses on nationalism, state building, and migration in post-socialist contexts. Beyond her immediate areas of expertise, she is concerned with the futures that we make through our actions in the present, as well as with our shared responsibility for these futures. Dace Dzenovska turned to an academic career in anthropology after becoming disillusioned with development work as a development professional with the United Nations. She received her doctoral degree in social cultural anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley, CA, where she wrote a dissertation on post-socialist democratization and tolerance promotion—now a book manuscript called “Complicit Becoming: Tolerance Work and Europeanization After Socialism.” She has also authored multiple articles in internationally renowned journals, as well as a book on post-EU enlargement outmigration. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Europe-The Future To Come-Federal Union Explained
 
02:48
During this interview with Andrew Duff we get a look into the European Union's future through the changes to the EU treaty that Andrew Duff himself drafted in the Fundamental Law. The question asked to Mr. Duff deals with the status of the nation State. Andrew Duff states that the next treaty, the one he has already drafted become the European Union's constitution, but that the constitution belongs to the EU Citizen. Tune in for the video to hear the details of what lies ahead for EU citizens. The transcript of this video is typed below. For more on the EU's future from Andrew Duff who is helping to write it, stay tuned in this playlist. Erika Grey The nation states play a significant role in the EU's political evolution and have derailed its momentum and progress at times, does this change with Fundamental Law? Or will the nation state still? Andrew Duff Yes, I mean I think the fundamental law displays or it illustrates what a federal union would be like. The States are still there they still play and important part especially as the component of the second chamber of the legislature. And they still of course in critical issues of global strategy for instance the Ukrainian crisis now, the States and especially the prime ministers and presidents of the larger States have a important part to play in such a global crisis, but they aren't in the federal prospectus that I’ve put forward. As it were the masters of the treaties, the treaties become a constitution and the constitution belongs to the citizen, which has popular sovereignty, to own the treaty construct, which at present it does not. It’s now up to lawyers and diplomats, we want to bring the exercise closer to the people so that there is a sense of identity with the government of the union that in present people just don’t have.

EU Federal Union-The United Nations Security Council Question
 
04:16
This interview delves into the question of once the Fundamental Law treaty renders the European Union into a federal union, what happens to the Nation States that are in the UN Security Council. While Andrew Duff answers this question, his answer also takes us into his thoughts as he was writing the Fundamental Law of the European Union and he revealed what you cannot do in an EU treaty. See the transcript below and for more on the Fundamental Law written to revise the Lisbon treaty and move the EU forward into a Federal Union stay tuned for more from this interview found in this playlist. Erika Grey The Law of the Union reclassifies member states as States and its aim is for to establish full-fledged federal union, yet, in several areas it reverts back to the Nation State having preeminence such as in the UN. Article 414 states: States which are also members of the United Nations Security Council will consort and keep the other states and the foreign minister fully informed. States which are members of the Security Council will in the execution of their functions, defend the positions and the interests of the union, without prejudice to their responsibilities under the provision of the United Nations charter. Once the fundamental law establishes the EU as a United States of Europe and it is a federal union wouldn’t the states that hold seats in the Security Council cease to exist as sovereign nations and have to withdraw from the Security Council such as West Germany, you know, Czechoslovakia, and the follow up question to that is also once the Federal Law [Fundamental Law] is established and political union, and the EU achieves political union and establishes the federal law [Fundamental Law] wouldn’t the federalized EU need to submit a new application and apply as a member because it would be an actual government for the people? Erika Grey Yes, I think what's not to preempt or preclude from anything happening in the years to come. The problem in the present treaties is it’s very prohibited. It’s sort of what you can’t do, what you mustn't do. What I want to do is to create a treaty constitutional treaty that is more permissive, that will permit the development of a common foreign security and defense policy in its time and as circumstances permit. I think if I had sought at this stage to prescribe the abolition of the permeant seats of France and the UK in the security council of the UN in the absence of any larger reform of the UN, incidentally, which is a different issue, but an associated one, I think that would have been considered to be rather absurd. I mean one you know one has to be pragmatic. One can be can have aspirations, one could be very have clear objectives. But I think that in the means to achieve a common international policy one has to recognize its going to take time and it’s going to take process. There is going to be a process of integration as simulation of building trust between the States of the EU, in each other’s diplomacy, sharing intelligences between them is a very sensitive issue. Erika Grey Yes a very delicate balance as well Andrew Duff So one I think can’t be- one could have been too naive about this. Erika Grey So that was deliberate then? Andrew Duff Yes, Erika Grey That was actually deliberate Andrew Duff Yes Erika Grey To not take that step cause that would be too offensive Andrew Duff Yea Follow me on Twitter https://twitter.com/erikagrey I follow back Look over my Website http://www.erikagrey.com See my articles http://www.erikagrey.com/ See my latest article http://www.erikagrey.com
