EU Referendum & Article 50

On the 8th of June, a UK general election, which resulted in a major setback for the Conservative party, was held, while, as of the 19th of June, EU officials and UK Government representatives have started to engaged in official negotiations.  The latest Britain’s period of legal and political uncertainty and the snap elections envisaged  by the UK PM Theresa May added a further layer of unpredictability to the UK process of exit from the EU. While a ‘hard Brexit’ seems the main possible outcome (and risk) of the UK-EU negotiations, the results of the snap election have also reduced the British Conservative government power as well as its apparent internal unity, along with the time at UK’s disposal to conclude an agreement.  Will the EU and Britain be able to find a mutually satisfactory deal within the two year deadline?

Post US Presidential vote & European National Elections Year

The global effects spread by Donald Trump’s successful climb to the White House and the UK referendum continue to reverberate. In addition, a series of national elections have raised concerns about the political risks posed by the evolutions of the European Union. Nevertheless, after the Juncker’s Commission released a “White Paper” on the future of the EU, Emmanuel Macron victory of the French Presidential election and the Franco-German axis revival, the EU political and economic outlook appears far more reassuring compared to the beginning of the year. However, there are still several crucial unknowns on the horizon: at an EU level, the German elections have raised several doubts on the effectiveness of teh French-German couple as a engine. In Italy, notably one of the four largest EU economies, are adding a further degree of uncertainty not only  due to the prolonged  controversies on the electoral law, but also for the fact that it might result in another coalition dilemma. Whereas, at a global level, both the G7 and the G20 summits have highlighted already known divergences between Europe and the US concerning trade and climate policies. In this context, emerging countries such as China and India are also adapting to the current European political setting, looking and taking position within the international arena.
