25th Anniversary of the Euro – Navigating through Crisis towards Stability

Working Breakfast of the KAS-BdB Finance Forum 2024

The start of the new year was also the 25-year anniversary of the Euro. These 25 years were – in part – very tumultuous years. The Euro and with it also the EU has developed in unexpected ways. Its guardian, the European Central Bank, had to take on a much more active role than it had been envisioned originally. The currency itself and its image has also changed over the years. Despite the troubled start it has also become a symbol for European Unity and how close we as Europeans have grown together over the years.

Event Review: EU Stability and Growth Pact

EU budget and the municipal and local economic setting in Europe

Last Wednesday, 29th November, we were pleased to host the panel discussion “EU Stability and Growth Pact: EU budget and the municipal and local economic setting in Europe” in cooperation with Deutscher Städte- und Gemeindebund and Finanzgruppe Deutscher Sparkassen- und Giroverband in the European Parliament. The Stability and Growth Pact (SGP) aims at promoting economic stability across the European Union by reducing budget deficits and debt-to-GDP ratios. In April of this year, the European Commission has set out a new fiscal governance proposal that is expected to be implemented in the coming year. This proposal entails various new approaches such as a country-by-country debt sustainability analysis. The above-mentioned developments served as an opportunity to analyze said proposal and to deliberate about possible refinements. Consequently, the fruitful discussion amongst the 10 distinguished speakers and the engaged audience underlined that the SGP must be more assertive and that a further increase in debt within the member states must be prevented. Nevertheless, it was agreed that reducing debt must not prevent the urgently needed investments into the future of the European market economies. It was a particular honour to have MEP Niclas Herbst with us who not only provided valuable insights from the Parliament’s perspective but also served as a moderator. Moreover, Tim Peter from our Berlin office presented his analysis of the Commission’s fiscal governance proposal and highlighted that it must be questioned whether said proposal will be efficient in tackling the issues at hand.

Counting Down to the 2024 U.S. Elections

A Year in different Perspectives

As the 2024 U.S. Elections approach, the European Union (EU) is keenly aware of the potential ramifications these elections might have on its future and the longstanding transatlantic relation-ship. The historic bond between the U.S. and the EU, founded on mutual values and collaborative endeavors, is at a juncture. The election results could either bolster the principles of multilateral-ism and international alliances, reminiscent of the Biden era, or lead to a shift in U.S. foreign poli-cy that might challenge the unity between the two.

Die demokratische Republik Kongo nach den Präsidentschafts- und Parlamentswahlen 2006

Nationale Perspektiven und Externe Unterstützung

Der Weg zur Demokratie im 53-Millionen-Einwohner-Staat Kongo ist ein langer – und ein schwieriger noch dazu. Mittlerweile haben die Kongolesen ihre Volksvertreter zwar bestimmt, ihren Präsidenten gewählt und der unterlegene Kandidat, Jean-Pierre Bemba, hat den Sieg von Joseph Kabila auch offiziell anerkannt. Doch damit allein ist die demokratische Zukunft des Landes noch längst nicht gesichert.

"Global Partnership": A New Conflict Within NATO?

Throughout the last several months, the concept of “Global Partnership” has been causing headaches in the alliance. The United States has been working to implement an institutional framework within NATO in order to intensify global cooperation with the so-called “likeminded states” – states with a Western orientation. This is intended to be one of the primary results of the NATO summit to be held in Riga, Latvia, in November 2006. While Washington views the proposed “Global Partnership Forum” as an important step in modernizing the alliance to face the realities of the post-September 11th world, the majority of European NATO members are critical of the idea of a new committee with global membership. The Europeans’ concerns have arisen partly due to a lack of understanding of the proposed body, not at least a re-sult of the Americans’ insufficient communication of the concept. On the other hand, the idea for the “Global Partnership” has not been given enough thought, and justifia-bly raises questions. What stands behind the concept of a “global partnership”, what advantages can be attained through it, and which criticisms are in fact compelling?
