Across the EUniverse – Number Five
We at Across the EUniverse are emotionally attached to the idea of European integration and the building of structures and institutions to promote and safeguard European values. For us it is a very human project. For this reason in this fifth edition we have based our articles on the five senses of humans.
We can find an EU light Touch on Rusal Armenal case concerning the (lack of direct) effect of the WTO Agreements in the EU legal order, and the first application of the Excessive Deficit Procedure leading to a severe fine imposed to Spain.
We can Smell what the EU institutions have done during the summer and what they are planning to do in the coming months (What’s App in the EU).
WTO Members reach landmark high-tech deal is a Sight to see, and also we Taste that the EU Commission proposes an Action Plan or Fair and Efficient Corporation taxation.
Finally, the general Sound of the EU on Passengers rights can be heard in the Passenger Name Directive and its first implications.
Five Senses as a whole for Humans and Five Legislative Actions towards the progressive integration of Member State Laws and Policies which bring us beyond mere harmonisation towards a more complete Union.
