Осенью исполняется два года с того момента, как в Украине началась новая эпоха анти-коррупционных реформ. Под этой эгидой в Риге завершилась одноимённая публичная дискуссия от открытого общества «Delna» с фокусом на коррупцию политических партий. Латвийскую столицу посетили гости как из государственного, так и общественного сектора Украины, журналисты, правозащитники. Спустя два года пришло время выдохнуть и подвести итоги, посмотреть на вызовы и проблемы.

Spanish Island to be Powered by 100% Renewable Energy

A tiny Spanish island with just 10,000 residents is about to do something amazing. El Hierro, the smallest of the Canary Islands, plans to completely sever ties with the traditional power grid and move entirely to renewable energy. The island plans to become completely self sufficient next month when its 11.5 megawatt wind farm kicks into gear. El Hierro already has a water turbine that generates electricity, and the added wind power will enable the island to go totally off-grid.

Editor's note: We're publishing Debating Europe's new project. Get involved!


Has the Front National benefited electorally from Brexit? It is, of course, too early to say for certain. If Britain thrives outside the European Union, then it might make a vote for the Front National seem less like a leap into the unknown.

The day after tomorrow: What is next for the UK and the EU?

Tagged: , eu , future , uk


The time we all have been afraid of has arrived. The area we have entered is totally uncharted. This is not a characterization that promotes terror but it sure is a characterization that tries to figure out the unknown. For the first time in its history, the European Union will say goodbye to a member state. But is this goodbye forever? I think it is not. Maybe this won’t be the very end of a long lasting relationship.
