Pendant une heure Daniel Guéguen a répondu sans tabou aux questions de Lora Verheeke qui, outre l’animation de son émission consacrée au Lobbying européen, collabore à Corporate Europe Observatory, une association qui entend promouvoir les bonnes pratiques de lobbying et dénoncer les manquements à l’éthique. A la suite d’une introduction classiquement consacrée à la définition… » read more

Overhauling the balance of powers or institutional tinkering? Law constitutes one of the fundamental pillars of democracy, but it is more than this. Law is also a vital cog in the EU decision-making system. In a way, it facilitates relations between the political and the operational. A judicial system that functions badly, inconsistently or not… » read more

Une remise à plat de l’équilibre des pouvoirs ou un bricolage institutionnel ? La science du droit constitue un des piliers de la démocratie, mais elle n’est pas que cela. Le droit constitue un rouage essentiel de la prise de décision communautaire. En quelque sorte, il lubrifie la relation entre le politique et l’opérationnel. Un… » read more

23 June 2016 to 29 March 2017: it took 280 days to come up with a letter that fills me with a range of emotions, from laughter to incredulity. And in my mind, it confirms something I have never doubted: that Brexit will not happen – at least not within the timeframe and procedures envisaged.… » read more

23 juin 2016 – 29 mars 2017 : 280 jours pour produire une lettre qui m’inspire une gamme de sentiments allant du sourire à l’incrédulité. Et me confirme – ce dont je n’ai jamais douté – que le Brexit n’aura pas lieu, en tout cas ni dans les délais ou les modalités envisagées. Le Brexit… » read more

Le projet de réforme de la Comitologie offre à la Commission la possibilité de s’abriter sous le parapluie protecteur des Etats membres. On peut y voir un manque de courage de la Commission qui s’efforce de revenir au système prévalant avant l’adoption du Traité de Lisbonne et qu’elle avait appelé de ses voeux pour accroître… » read more

The proposed comitology reform would allow the Commission to shelter itself under Member States’ umbrella. Possibly due to lack of courage, the Commission is effectively trying to return to the pre-Lisbon system, even though it favoured abandoning this system to increase its power over implementing measures.

Let me tell you the story about the egg in the square… It sounds like the start of a really nice story, but I am sorry to disappoint you. In the EU reality, the story about the egg in the square has nothing charming or funny in store for us. The egg in the square,… » read more

We recently objected to the statement of Ms Marie Donnelly (DG ENER), who said that public opinion is against biofuels and therefore we should follow the vox populi, regardless of the facts. The role of the Commission is to act in the general interest and inform citizens on the basis of objective studies. This is… » read more

Nous nous sommes élevés contre les déclarations de Mme Donnelly (DG ENER) selon laquelle l’opinion publique étant contre les biocarburants, il convient de s’aligner sur la vox populi, qu’importent les faits. Le rôle de la Commission est d’agir dans l’intérêt général et donc d’informer les citoyens sur la base d’études objectives. C’est à cela que… » read more
