The view from Brussels

Why we need an open and more competitive EU energy market

An open and competitive single EU market is the only reliable way to safeguard secure energy supplies. Such an open market will guarantee security of supply as it will attract external suppliers, embrace new energy mixes and ensure the internal strength needed to face international challenges. This is one of the reasons why, during the 1990s, the EU decided to open the energy sector to competition.

Francisco Prol argues for a more flexible approach to adapting new legislation.

The enactment of new legislation usually causes some kind of protest. Some feel uneasy about the changes proposed, while others complain they are already obsolete.

In an age of new technology, with the development of transnational providers and services, we need to rethink the way we have typically regulated telecoms markets. Telephony today can be achieved through a variety of technologies, including fibre optics, wireless technologies, and perhaps most importantly, from internet technologies (ie, voice over internet protocol - VOIP).

In-Line With Europe, Ramón Mullerat

Ramón Mullerat agrees with the current reforms in legal education

When designing the structure of a new Europe, Robert Schuman said it would not be achieved through a one-off change, but through a series of concrete achievements. The harmonisation of the liberal professions, with their concept of public service, would play an important role providing the balance and stability required within a dynamic society. Lawyers, he believed, have a key role to play in safeguarding the fair administration of justice and guaranteeing the basic rights required within a democratic society.
