Prensa FAES commemorates the 30th anniversary of the demolition of the Berlin Wall

Through a series of testimonies by personalities from politics, economics, academy and culture, FAES remembers the triumph of liberal democracy as an ethical, political and economic system superior to communist totalitarianism.

Prensa Sedition and lies

The ruling of the Supreme Court offers subject matter for detailed consideration and also for disagreement. The effective enforcement of sentences without benefits is an essential question of the credibility of the democratic legal order. The judgement also raises questions to be addressed in the future: there are matters of legislative policy that must be addressed in order to update the means at the disposal of the rule of law to ensure its integrity.

Prensa Jacques Chirac: the last pompidurian

A politician with many edges and several public faces, was the best example of what the French expect from their president. He was the last son of a great generation of politicians who quote to the rise before the smallness of their successors. A world died with him, but France must continue as a bastion of how exceptional the European model has for the world.

Prensa 10-N, an undercover second lap for Sánchez

Spain will hold new elections after the spectacle of arrogance, demands and simulations of Pedro Sánchez, and nothing shown by the frankenstein government throws reliability on what can be expected of the PSOE. The economic slowdown will aggravate the disastrous consequences of leaving the country’s management in its hands, which needs answers to the territorial and constitutional problem and to retake the reforms.

Prensa “Never before as today politics seems less relevant, which contrasts with the expectations of the ‘new politics’”

José María Aznar has claimed today that “never before as today in our democratic trajectory politics seems less relevant or, if preferred, less productive. This reality highly contrasts the expectations created by the called ‘new politics’”. “It used to be said -he has added- that agreement culture would be promoted, but never as today appeals for general interests have been less echoed, nor have been institutions less taken care of”. In his opinion, “regardless of the moderated positions, most common among the electorate, there is higher levels of radicalism, never known before in our political system”.

Prensa A Vulnerable Spain

La vulnerabilidad de un país se deriva de la existencia de una amenaza real y de la adecuación de la seguridad y defensa nacional para disuadirla o eliminarla. Con esta ecuación en la mano, España es, un año después de los atentados del 11-M, más vulnerable, posiblemente más vulnerable que nunca antes. La amenaza persiste y la defensa nacional ha empeorado para hacerle frente.

Prensa European Funds: European Regional Policy in Spain. 1986-2003

La Política de Cohesión financiada desde el presupuesto comunitario es beneficiosa para todos los países de la Unión. Permite, por un lado, a medio y largo plazo, un proceso de convergencia real de los países y regiones más pobres, aunque supone también importantes ventajas competitivas para los más ricos. Sin embargo, si las políticas regionales no van acompañadas de las reformas estructurales necesarias corren el riesgo de pretender hacer de la subvención la principal fuente de renta de amplias capas extensas de población con carácter permanente, pervirtiendo así la naturaleza y objetivo de los fondos.

Prensa What is at Stake for Spain in the European Constitution's Negotiation?

Desde su inicio, la Unión Europea ha adoptado sus decisiones por consenso y respetando el equilibrio de los intereses de todos. Este afán se plasma en un sistema político-institucional sui generis en el que los Tratados atribuyen el poder legislativo, judicial y ejecutivo entre las diversas instituciones comunitarias. Dentro del entramado institucional comunitario, el Consejo desempeña un papel fundamental, puesto que es co-legislador y autoridad presupuestaria junto con el Parlamento Europeo. Además, el Consejo está llamado a ejercer un papel cada vez mayor en la definición de la política exterior de la Unión Europea y realiza una labor fundamental en la preparación de las reuniones del Consejo Europeo, verdadero vértice político de la Unión Europea. La forma en que el Consejo adopta sus decisiones está también diseñada para conseguir el consenso y mantener el equilibrio de poderes. Hasta ahora, el Consejo ha adoptado sus decisiones mediante el denominado sistema de voto ponderado.
