EU in 101 questions
Friday 30 March 2012
Where do the European Union’s borders lie? How many languages are spoken in the EU? Has Franco-German friendship failed as the driver of the EU? What are the rights of the European Parliament? Why does the EU have a poor image? How is a European law put together? What do lobbyists do in Brussels? Why are burqas banned in certain countries and authorised in others? How can the EU allow a member state to be headed by a party with fascist tendencies? Why cannot the EU prevent the collapse of public finances in Greece? Ruth Reichstein, a Brussels-based self-employed journalist, raises 101 eclectic and relevant questions, answering them in 160 pages of enlightening and critical text. In German.
