Time to rethink EU democracy

The EU must stop funding illiberalism

Last week, we had the dubious pleasure of witnessing the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán team up with his Slovenian counterpart Janez Janša and the Serbian President Alexander Vučić. Their request? Asking to be “left alone”; apparently because they do not wish to be bothered by the European Union’s "cultural Marxism", writes Dacian Cioloș.

Ciolos: Europe’s Green Deal is an opportunity for renewal and reinvention

The Green Deal communication by the European Commission is a priority initiative, which must mark the opening chapter for a transformational project. The aim of this project is to deliver prosperity and a brighter, cleaner future for our continent, writes Dacian Cioloș.

Ciolos: We need strong majority for a ‘Renewed’ Europe
