politjobs job alert EU 2016-49 – Schulz, Renzi, van der Bellen: European charades

Europe is relieved – Austria rejected a far-right president and voted Alexander van der Bellen into office. And Europe is scared – Italy’s prime minister Matteo Renzi lost his referendum and resigned – causing a power vacuum in unstable times and adding momentum to Beppe Grillo’s Five Star movement – which also does not have solutions. At the same time, Angela Merkel is confirmed in her position as chair of the German conservative party – with a result that is far from great. Just before, European Parliament president Martin Schulz announced that he will move into national politics – causing chaos because the parties were not prepared for having to seek a replacement.

Looking at all these developments, it is not only the citizens, but also policymakers who demonstrate discontent, uncertainty and fear of what the future will bring. We are ill-served if we remain in this state of mind. The European Union has been an incredibly successful instrument to bring peace and prosperity to Europe – and it still is; something to remember as we go into the holiday season.
