"Quo vadis Europa at 27?" was the question that the President of the EU Commission Jean Claude Junker raised in his speech at the Plenaria in Brussels last March 10th, presenting his document titled “White Paper on the Future of Europe”. All the European leaders have been asked to decide how the EU should react to its internal and external crises. Especially after Brexit, the EU is at an historical turning point: time has come to decide which path the EU should follow. As President Junker said,  “It is time to open a new chapter of our history”. In the following exclusive article for EPOS, our new intern Eleonora Lamio, Bachelor degree in International and Diplomatic Sciences at LUISS Guido Carli University, analyses the challenges that the European Union is facing, pointing out the political, economic, social and cultural implications

Epos converses with Eleni-Vasiliki Bampaliouta

by Nicolamaria Coppola (EPOS)
EPOS Conversations

The economic crisis in Greece is polarizing the opinions of the European citizens, firstly, and of all the intellectuals and the authorized personnel, secondly, about the system of the bailout and the attitude of the European Union towards Greece and the Greek population. The catastrophic results of the austerity policy have gone beyond any expectation. In spite of the propaganda that the Greek problem is a problem and a failure of the Greeks, everybody understands that behind the scenes is going the drama of the problems, the contradictions and the perspectives of Europe as a community, and a union. EPOS has interviewed the Athens-based Greek journalist Eleni-Vasiliki Bampaliouta, expert in politics and economy: in this exclusive conversation, she gives our readers her point of view from the ground on the economic crisis, the Greek government and the approach of the so-called TROIKA towards her and her compatriots

The Greek case is typical of dramatic changes in the conceptualization of economic dangers and societal consequences. Almost 6 years after the outbreak of the economic and financial crisis, the "saving" plans still suffer from faulty assumptions and half-hearted decisions with an undeclared albeit clear intention to create a firewall that only prevents the immediate crisis contagion without necessarily offering a sustainable solution. The greatest challenge of the Greek government right now is to ensure the basic social rights of the general population and to protect at the same time the democratic tradition of the country away from the dangers of polarization, populism, anti-democratic and anti-European extremist voices. But what the other European governments should do? The exclusive analysis and the point of view of Dr. Christos Tsironis, Ass. Prof. Contemporary Social Theory, Sector of Ethics and Sociology, Dep. of Theology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

Next July, Croatia is becoming the 28th member of the European Union. Croatia's EU accession will have several consequences, not only on the Croatian society and the EU itself, but also on the rest of the Balkan region, and in particular on the neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina where the Bosnian Croats and the Croatian-Muslim community will be divided once again

Europeism or EU, that is the question

All countries of West Balkans are doing their best to leap closer to the European Union. In Serbia post-elections, the predominant ideology is "Europeism", expressed by all political parties: it prevails as a discourse in internal and foreign policies, without alternative. However, there is a lack of rules of engagement, having in mind that advancing “toward Europe, but with Kosovo” can be achieved even via Russia, with unavoidable USA support; or in any other way that implies an open cry for help for a country which is unable to solve its crucial internal problems
