    H.E. Giuseppina Zarra: Europe reacts well and promptly to the bad consequences of the pandemic

    After the crisis due to the pandemic, we have to work in order to get back to the situation before; in the meantime, by understanding the changes in the economy and international relations, we should invest our energies in reshaping the commercial and investment relations by adapting to the new scenario and opening up to innovative solutions, H.E. Giuseppina Zarra, the new Ambassador of Italy to Bulgaria, says in an interview to EUROPOST.

  • Prof Ingrid Shikova: EU deal with UK is not finished

    Prof Ingrid Shikova: EU deal with UK is not finished

    The UK's selective approach and its willingness to take advantage mainly of the large European market - what the term cherry-picking implies in English - could have set a bad precedent, undermining the logic of the European integration process. It was extremely important to apply the principle of achieving the right balance between rights and obligations. I think the last thing both sides wanted was to trade under the rules of the World Trade Organisation, says Ingrid Shikova, professor in EU policies, in an interview to EUROPOST.

    Stefan De Keersmaecker: Building trust in vaccines is fundamental

    A strong European Health Union will protect our health, but also our ways of living, our economies and societies. Where our health is in danger, our economies are in danger. The close relation between saving lives and saving livelihoods has never been so clear, Stefan De Keersmaecker, European Commission Spokesperson, says in an interview to EUROPOST.

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

    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

    All quiet on the European front

    One of the major challenges facing the European Union is for the bloc to be respected as a factor in solving global crises. In other words, to qualify for the group of the two widely acknowledged great powers, which in recent years have been joined quite convincingly by China as well.
