Brexit and the Trump elections have shown that we cannot stay indifferent to growing populism and nationalism. If we fail to act, we will be responsible if something goes wrong. The March of Europe was therefore an important act to make pressure on European leaders to endorse European (...)
Let’s assume that, as many analysts assume, Trump’s election does indeed mean that NATO suffers, and that, in turn, the European Union is made stronger. A priori this seems like a good scenario, but let’s go even further. This might seem an inappropriate forum for this opinion to be published, (...)
Britain is on its way out of the EU, but Scotland voted to remain. At this point, there are three options for Scotland’s future relationship with the EU. Either Scotland’s arrangement will be the same as that of the rest of the UK, Scotland gets a special status or Scotland becomes an independent state.
The 24th June will go down in history as the first time European integration reversed. Integration has slowed down and even came to a halt, but it has never been reversed. “Brexit is Brexit,” has said Theresa May said of the referendum results, but the question everyone is asking themselves is: “is it really fair that a meagre win of the 52 % should dictate the future of the 48 % after a campaign that was solely based on lies from the Leave-campaign?”
The United Kingdom is not only very unique EU member state, which has own international currency but it is also de facto the union within the union. Especially after adoption of Scotland Act 2016  and the upcoming Wales Bill 2016-2017 , Scotland and Wales have a higher degree of sovereignty than any state in the Federal Republic of Germany, and high enough to run their own referendums on EU membership.
Thursday night I was unable to fall asleep, I lay awake watching in disbelief as my compatriots voted to leave the European Union. The next morning I woke to find thousand messages of WhatsApp and Facebook from my family and friends, conversations which just showed the shock we were all going through. No one could believe what was happening, but could it all just be a joke? Since then I have been feeling as if I was breaking up with my boyfriend, I have been feeling confused, sad and angry and I have been checking my phone every 20 minutes in case there are news or some error has been discovered, I have been having false hopes which eventually do not come true. In reality, this feeling is worse than what you feel when going through a break up, because it affects all of us as we are now living on the edge, knowing that we are going to break up with each other, but neither knowing when or how it is going to happen, nor what life will be like afterwards.
