Spain takes over EU presidency as Turkey eyes progress

Spanish Council presidency website is a failure

by Julien Frisch

I totally agree with The European Citizen and Grahnlaw that the website of the Spanish EU Council presidency is a failure, uninspiring and absolutely not useful for the public.

Spain?s EU Council presidency website: New treaty ? old communications

by Grahnlaw

After Sweden with the last presidency of the Council of the European Union, mainly under the Treaty of Nice, Spain?s presidency website ? the first with the Lisbon Treaty in force from day one ? paradoxically feels like a throwback to old times: European Digital Agenda in 2010 on first day of Spanish EU Council presidency (1 January 2010).

How the Spanish EU Council Presidency can be a success

by Julien Frisch

In two days, the Spanish EU Council Presidency will take over from the Swedish Council Presidency, and the Spanish will be the first rotating presidency under the Lisbon Treaty system.

European Digital Agenda: EU Council presidency trio Spain, Belgium and Hungary

The summary of Spain?s work programme was far from conclusive, so we advanced to the [Draft] programme of the presidency trio.

Citizens in the EU Information Society (European Digital Agenda)

by Grahnlaw

The previous Grahnlaw blog post EU: Last call for copyright comments! Consultation closing (30 December 2009) was, in its own humble way, an example of European cross-border networking in the digital age.
