Special Coverage

EU Referendum and Article 50

On the 8th of June 2017, the result of 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.  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 a 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 internal unity. Also, the UK is dangerously  short of time to conclude a comprehensive agreement. Will the EU and Britain be able to find a mutually satisfactory deal within the two year deadline?

 The EU in 2018 and the global stage

The global effects spread by Donald Trump’s successful climb to the White House  continue to reverberate. In addition, a series of national elections have raised concerns about the political risks posed by the possible 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, as well as the EU political and economic outlook appeared far more reassuring compared to the beginning of the year. However, there are still several crucial unknowns on the horizon: at EU level, the German elections negotiations have raised several doubts on the effectiveness of the French-German couple as a engine. In Italy, notably one of the four largest EU economies, the upcoming elections are adding a further degree of uncertainty due to the political uncertainty which might come out of the final results. Whereas, at a global level, the G7 and G20, as well as the COP23 summits have highlighted already known divergences between Europe and the US, with special regard to trade and climate policies. In this context, emerging countries such as China and India, as well as Russia are also adapting to the current European & North American political setting.
