politjobs job alert EU 2016-43 – the hard way
Every Asterix fan may wonder these days if the little Gaul does not have some descendants who migrated to Belgian Wallonia some time ago – a small region in Europe is holding up the free trade agreement CETA. The media polarize opinions: the Wallonian government is either bashed as a dwarf holding Europe hostage, or celebrated as a hero amongst cowards.
Irrespective of the – by now pretty interesting and mostly positive – content of CETA: the conflict demonstrates that Europe needs to find a better way of dealing with its citizens. Part of the Wallonian uproar may be an opportunistic decision to get back at the Flemish region of Belgium (that is supporting CETA), but partially, this is about fears that have not been sufficiently addressed – just like during the BREXIT debate. It seems I come to the same conclusions in every politjobs alert at the moment. The EU apparently has to learn the hard way: communication with ordinary citizens needs to be transparent, to address the fears and the anger, and it needs to start early on, before negotiations get to the decision-making stage.
If you are reading this, you may want to become one of these professional communicators – so find the latest jobs and as usual more on politjobs.eu!
