Briefing – Investigations conducted by the European Anti-Fraud Office – October 2014 update

17-10-2014 01:00 AM EEST

This updated appraisal on investigations conducted by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) concludes that improving procedural guarantees of persons concerned by OLAF investigations is the way forward. However further considerations are necessary to bring clarity on the scope of OLAF’s mandate, on the best approach to secure its independence and to ensure more transparency in the conduct of OLAF investigations. This briefing is one of a new series of ‘Implementation Appraisals’, produced by the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), on the operation of existing EU legislation in practice. Each briefing focuses on a specific EU body of law which is, or will shortly be, subject to amending proposals from the European Commission.  ‘Implementation Appraisals’ are provided to assist parliamentary committees in their consideration of related Commission proposals, once tabled.

Briefing – The OECD – Promoting ‘better policies for better lives’

17-10-2014 01:00 AM EEST

PDF version The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is an intergovernmental organisation dedicated to promoting public policies which improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. Representing the European Union within the OECD, the European Commission is a ‘quasi-member’ of the organisation, enjoying nearly all the same rights and privileges as those EU Member States which have joined the OECD.

Briefing – Setting EU priorities, 2014-19

17-10-2014 01:00 AM EEST

PDF version Jean-Claude Juncker, Commission President-elect, has set out the political agenda for his five-year term (2014-19) at the head of the institution in a set of ‘political guidelines’ focussing on ten policy areas in which he said that the European Union could make a difference, and underlined the importance of achieving concrete results in each area. This Briefing represents a first effort to cross-check the ten priorities against past requests from the Parliament for action by the Commission, drawing where appropriate on work undertaken for parliamentary committees on the potential added value of action in these fields.

Study – Robustness, Validity and Significance of the ECB’s Asset Quality Review and Stress Test Exercise

15-10-2014 01:00 AM EEST

As we are moving toward a eurozone banking union, the European Central Bank (ECB) is going to take over the regulatory oversight of 128 banks in November 2014. To that end, the ECB conducted a comprehensive assessment of these banks, which included an asset quality review (AQR) and a stress test. The fundamental question is what will the financial condition of these banks be when the ECB commences its regulatory oversight? And, can the comprehensive assessment lead to a full repair of banks’ balance sheets so that the ECB takes over financially sound banks and is the necessary regulation in place to facilitate this? Overall, the design of the assessment does not comprehensively deal with the problems in the financial sector and risks may remain that will pose substantial threats to financial stability in the eurozone.

In-Depth Analysis – Civil Society’s Concerns about the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership 19-10-2014In-Depth Analysis – Civil Society’s Concerns about the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

14-10-2014 01:00 AM EEST

When the EU and the US launched negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) in June 2013, civil society was invited to play ‘a constructive and engaged part in defining the content’ of this strategic deal. Interest in the TTIP has gone beyond its expected economic impact: the agreement has been seen by some as a way to strengthen the West’s weakening grip on the world economy, and by others as a tool for big multinationals to secure unfair advantages at the expense of the rest of society. Civil society groups have come forward with various conditions, demands (including stopping the negotiations) and concrete proposals – in most cases to ensure that the TTIP represents their interests. The TTIP requires extremely complex international negotiations, and its final content is still not known. The result will depend on the outcome of the negotiations and the extent to which they respond to civil society’s concerns. However, much will also depend on the way the European Parliament and the Council agree to transpose the provisions of the new deal – if concluded and approved – into existing EU legislation.

Article – EU budget for 2015: “The Parliament will fight hard”

20-10-2014 10:43 AM EEST

Plenary sessions : MEPs will debate the Parliament’s position on the EU’s budget for next year on Tuesday 21 October and vote on it the following day. The EP’s budgets committee recommends reversing the Council’s cuts, but this would mean the Parliament would have to negotiate with the Council. We discussed the issue with Eider Gardiazábal, who is drafting the Parliament’s position on the general budget. The Spanish member of the S&D group said the Parliament would fight hard to defend its position.
