The Great Illusion Revisited: The Future of the European Union’s Arctic Engagement

A KAS Briefing Paper by Dr. Andreas Raspotnik, Senior Researcher at the High North Center for Business and Governance, Nord University, Bodø, Norway

Keen observers of Arctic news headlines must have recently been amazed by the European Union edging again towards the Arctic stage. Despite our world being stymied by a sub-microscopic infectious agent, headlines on the future of the EU’s Arctic policy become more frequent–albeit starting from a rather low level of frequency. This brief takes advantage of an emerging EU-Arctic momentum and the future of the EU’s Arctic engagement by re-considering the EU’s Arctic status quo, the geopolitical realities of a new Arctic policy and the distinct role of the European Parliament in this policy-making process.

The European Elections from the Inside

Election Report issued by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung European Office regarding the 2019 European Parliament

The Election Report entitled “European Elections from the Inside” presents the results from the 2019 European Parliament elections from both a European and national perspective. Together with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung’s other overseas offices, we have compiled a concise overview for each of the 28 Member States of the European Union (EU), which analyses the results in the respective countries against the backdrop of current developments. In doing so, this series of reports therefore makes a significant contribution to enabling a more in-depth understanding of the overall results from the 2019 European elections.
