Podcast EU to go - First Episode online

In our new German Podcast series EU to go, we offer you compact background information and crispy analyses of current EU politics.

We're excited to present you our new German Podcast series "EU to go": Once every month, our moderator Dr. Thu Nguyen looks at the bigger picture behind EU news with one of our experts from the Jacques Delors Centre. In 20-30 minutes, we talk about the background of a current topic and present concrete ideas for the future. 

In the first episode, Thu Nguyen and Lucas Guttenberg take an in-depth look at the EU budget and the Commission’s proposal for a recovery fund. Praised as “historical”, the compromise between the heads of state and government in July means that the EU will issue common debt for the first time in its history. While negotiations continue in Brussels, many issues remain unanswered, including the question of the rule of law. Listen here to go on the most important questions: What is the state of negotiations, what are the contested issues, and what are the steps ahead now after the summer?
