Issue 3/2018 of integration published

In the new issue of integration, Peter Becker covers the negotiation process of the next multiannual financial framework 2021-2027 and underlines the necessity of finding a reliable balance between budgetary predictability on the one hand and political adaptability on the other. Jonas Bornemann discusses the member states’ sovereign choice to reintroduce border controls and the legal framework established by the Schengen acquis, which aims at the abolition of such checks. Antonios Souris analyses the federal states’ voting behaviour in the plenary sessions of the Bundesrat regarding European affairs and concludes that partisan considerations of federal states’ governments in European affairs are almost as strongly pronounced as in similar decision-making procedures related to domestic legislation. Anne Wetzel addresses the issue of rule implementation and compliance in models of external differentiated integration based on the example of the Energy Community. The issue contains also a summary of a conference on the relations between the EU and the Ukraine, organized by the Institut für Europäische Politik. The “Arbeitskreis Europäische Integration” reports on the “2018 ZEW Public Finance Conference” about the future of fiscal coordination in Europe.
