During the first half of 2012, when Denmark chairs the EU Council of Ministers, one contributor from each EU Member State will write an essay on Europe for Politiken. The contributors will typically be writers, commentators or analysts, and they are selected by Politiken’s editorial staff, which has the full editorial responsibility for the series.
The contributions are published regularly on politiken.dk where they can be read in both Danish and the original language. Together, the many essays will draw a snapshot of Europe in a period when Europe and the EU are facing historic challenges.
In the blue column to the right you can find a list of all published essays.
Debates at the House of Politiken
In connection with the essay series a number of debates will be held in Politiken's lecture hall in Copenhagen during the Presidency period. The first event took place on Monday 27th February with participation of Gazi Kapplani from Greece and Jose Torreblanca from Spain.
The second event was held the 26th of April with the participation of Martin Simecka from Slovakia and Marju Lauristin from Estonia.
