PAN EUROPEAN NETWORKS: GOVERNMENT
With Jean-Claude Juncker having now taken over from José Manuel Barroso as the President of the
European Commission, many look to the future of the European Union.
While the financial earthquake may have abated, economies and societies are still feeling the
aftershocks. The EU continues to work on completing key measures designed to ensure financial security,
economic competitiveness and social prosperity.
Outside of Europe, EU decision makers must grapple with the challenges posed by the crisis in Ukraine
and future relations with Russia. Elsewhere the continuing fight against the so-called ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq
and Syria remains a critical concern, as does the threat posed by Ebola.
Among the key individuals who appeared in PEN: Government 13 are:
n
Edgars Rinkeˉvicˇs – Latvian Foreign Minister;
n
Tibor Navracsics – Education Commissioner; and
n
Lieve Fransen – DG EMPL’s Director for Social Policies.
Issue 14 of Pan European Networks: Government will be published in May 2015.
