“Together, Make Europe strong again”
One year into the new EU commission and the new challenges ahead of Europe
As Europe is struggling with the coronavirus pandemic it faces challenges on an epic scale. Not just the recovery seems far, but even the foundation and principle values of the European integration such as freedom of movement have been put into jeopardy. The pandemic poses challenge and will definitely have a big impact on key policies including future enlargement and the neighbourhood policy. Much lies on the shoulder of both the German Presidency and the new EU Commission. It has been one year into the term of the present EU Commission, which is a good occasion to look back the first year and at the same time, to look ahead. Together, make Europe strong again – says the motto of the present EU presidency under Germany. When it was adopted, probably no one had thought that this would be so timely and accurate in the middle of the multifaceted challenges posed not only by the dramatically changing security landscape around the globe, but the COVID pandemic that had disrupted not just social and economic activity but the fundamental freedoms of the European integration.
