From Grexit to Brexit

The economic crisis, the threats of Grexit and Brexit and the death of Schengen are all failures of the EU. To survive, the bloc must learn to solve the root causes of its problems, writes Ernest Maragall.

It’s Europe, stupid!

The EU and Turkey must overcome a decade-long impasse in negotiations

In light of the slow, almost non-existent, progress of in Turkey's EU accession talks, some political groups in the European Parliament have called for a reassessment of the relationship. It would be a terrible mistake, write Ernest Maragall and Laura Batalla.

Tax harmonisation will stop harmful fiscal dumping, and help realise the EU’s aim of becoming a single market, argue Ernest Maragall and Jordi Angusto.

How we deal with Greece now will determine Europe’s political course

The EU's response to the Greek debt crisis will set the bloc's political direction for years to come. If we continue to choke the debtor, we risk drowning all of Europe, argue Ernest Maragall and Jordi Angusto. 

Europe must not abandon Greece in its hour of need

Negotiations between the new Greek government and the European institutions are fast approaching the point where lines will have to be drawn and clear positions taken. At that point, the likelihood (or not) of reaching an agreement will become clearer, writes Ernest Maragall MEP.
