This service covers the EU, national politics in all major European capitals, as well as the CEE region (including Russia, Ukraine, Belarus) and Turkey.
The EU is in a moment of transition, moving into a phase of much more active industrial and fiscal policy. European elections next year will define the region’s politics for the next 5 years and beyond. We provide detailed analysis on the EU political economy, including the reaction to the US Inflation Reduction Act, as well as EU borrowing, financial stability and the future of the EU’s fiscal rules.
Topics include key discussions and topics on EU-level, the interplay between Brussels and national capitals and broader geopolitical shifts such as the war in Ukraine and relations with the US and UK.
Looking beyond the EU, we cover the war in Ukraine and its geopolitical consequences in EU-US and EU-China relations. We also keep a close eye on national politics, from key elections, such as in Turkey, Poland and Spain, to matters of government stability in Italy or rule of law in Eastern Europe.
