RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE EP ON RUSSIA POLICY: POSITIVE STEPS

In its engagement with Russia, the EU should move in two directions: on the one hand, conditional selective dialogue with the Kremlin authorities and regional governments, and on the other hand strategic engagement with Russian civil society, which is striving for democracy in Russia, as well as independent cooperation with regional and local actors; the EU strategy towards Russia should not preclude engaging with the authorities where it is in the interests of the EU and does not undermine the EU’s commitments to human rights and democracy goals, as it is still important for the EU to find

EUROPEAN FOREIGN POLICY

Author: High Representative Josep Borrell

There is a considerable debate on the ‘how’ to build EU foreign policy and on ‘who’ frames it. The most important thing is how to avoid paralysis, because in most cases, Member States are very much divided. This inevitably leads us to the debate on how to make decisions.

GERMAN PARTIES AND THE EU

The Christian Democrats (CDU/CSU) and Social Democrats (SPD) consider the EU to be a central part of Germany’s future. Although both parties have made a strong pledge to the EU, they currently  lack clear ideas for future EU integration.
