EU to go - der Podcast für Europapolitik


EU to go - der Podcast für Europapolitik

Good news for the German-speaking community: Beginning of October 2020, we launch our new German Podcast series "EU to go". In 20 to 30 minutes, we offer you compact background information and sharp, concise analyses of current EU politics. Once every month, our moderator Dr. Thu Nguyen looks at the bigger picture behind the news with one of our experts from the Jacques Delors Centre and asks for concrete ideas for the future. 

Available on all podcast channels!

That dear money

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. Tune in to understand 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?  

Paris-Berlin: Pretty good friends?

In the second episode of EU to go "Paris-Berlin: Pretty good friends?", Thu Nguyen talks to Henriette Heimbach about the state of Franco-German friendship and its role as a motor of European integration. Germany and France, the European showpiece couple, have been in a serious crisis in recent years. But Corona, of all things, seems to bring new energy to the relationship.
