    Federico Alagna: EU's big mistake is to consider migration as a problem

    Migration is a complex, long-standing and absolutely ordinary phenomenon, which can entail challenges at times, but also plenty of opportunities. And, as such, it should be addressed and dealt with in a comprehensive way. When one considers migration as a problem, then the whole discourse is in a way misled. I would say that the pandemic has exacerbated an already existing attitude that, very broadly, the EU has kept over the years, Italian political researcher Federico Alagna says in an interview to Europost.

  • The virus that kills trust in the EU is no less dangerous

    The virus that kills trust in the EU is no less dangerous

    A virus of yet unknown origin has put mighty Europe into an intensive-care ward, struggling for breath on artificial ventilation. It's hard to believe but this same Europe, which has launched a multibillion-euro programme for space research and a similarly expensive AI development programme, all of a sudden woke up to a deficit of medical masks and protective gear for medical professionals, without enough beds in hospitals and short of medical personnel. And no satellites were needed to see that.

    All quiet on the European front

    Ruslan Trad: There is no drive for political solution to Syria's crisis

    For several years now, the war in Syria is not only a civil war but a regional conflict, which will only escalate. Ceasefires are mainly used by the involved parties as a tactic to buy time to regroup in preparation for more attacks. Extremist groups take advantage of the situation and through populist strategies paint themselves as a resistance, Ruslan Trad, journalist and Middle East analyst, says in an interview to Europost.

  • Ingrid Shikova: Shakespearean Brexit drama continues

    Ingrid Shikova: Shakespearean Brexit drama continues

    For the UK, EU membership was a pragmatic choice, not a romantic story. However, the country found itself in the middle of a project underpinned by the “ever closer union” principle, which did not fit London's idea of European integration, says Ingrid Shikova, professor in EU policies, in an interview to Europost.
