While formally a member of the…. The EU-Turkey statement has drastically brought down numbers of people trying to cross the Aegean and thereby also numbers of people drowning.
But its key provisions are not implemented. What is needed are decent reception conditions on the Greek islands, quick procedures meeting European standards, more returns to Turkey and a related monitoring-mechanism. EU member states should also make good on the promise to resettle considerable numbers of refugees directly from Turkey on a voluntary basis. But its key…. The year old consensus of no border changes in the Balkans is eroding.
In a region where most states are multi-ethnic this is dangerous. The EU should take a clear stance against. But Poland's judiciary is still under siege.

Further enlargement of the European Union in the Balkans is only possible if it is deeply transformative. Without radical improvements of institutions and the economy, no other Western Balkan country will ever join the European Union.
The accession process must be thoroughly reformed, made merit-based and offer membership in the Single Market as a credible interim goal. The idea for a genuine common EU asylum policy is dead.

In order to ensure co-operation from those countries, tangible benefits such as legal access for their citizens to the EU have to be offered. Instead a colition of EU member states should establish common asylum….
None of the West Balkan countries currently meets the criteria for EU accession. None of them will join without huge efforts to strengthen their democratic and judicial institutions. None of them will be prepared to join anytime soon. Yet, there are strong arguments for all EU member states to support the start of accession negotiations with North Macedonia and Albania as soon as possible.
Yet, there…. On 5 May the Council of Europe had its 70th birthday. Its health is rapidly deteriorating. In June its Parliamentary Assembly PACE gave up most of its powers to independently impose sanctions on member states, giving in to blackmail and threats from Russia.
This is unacceptable for an institution whose main purpose is to uphold human rights, democratic standards and the rule of law. The EU needs a reception and asylum system that enables member states at the external border to determine quickly who needs protection in the EU and who does not: a system that combines speed and quality.

This essay is an excerpt of Henryk M. Broder's book "Hurra, Wir Kapitulieren," "Hurray! Ten years ago, in the spring of , the world still seemed more or less okay. The towers of the World Trade Center dominated the Manhattan skyline, the American president had an affair with an intern, the Helmut Kohl era was coming to an end in Germany, and intellectuals killed time by debating over whether Francis Fukuyama was right in claiming that we have reached the "end of history" and whether capitalism had truly triumphed or socialism had merely lost the first round. In those days few were aware of the fine distinction between Islam and Islamism. One had to look very closely to recognize the first signs of a brewing crisis.
