Germany's Presidency of the Council of the EU

On 1 July 2020, the Federal Republic of Germany assumed the Presidency of the Council of the EU for the next six months. The agenda is now largely dominated by the Covid-19 crisis which broke out at the beginning of the year. The conclusion of the Multiannual Financial Framework and the additional multi-billion-euro recovery programme for the EU take priority. Moreover, there is a large number of files that were in the pipeline before the crisis hit...

The EU-office of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is working on these issues and will accompany the German Council Presidency with public discussions, specialist workshops, publications and analysis. By providing constructive and critical analysis of these debates and negotiations, offering progressive solutions and strengthening a transparent and open dialogue, the FES aims to ensure that the adopted measures contribute to a more socially balanced and sustainable Europe that successfully represents these values both domestically and in its external relations.
