To Stay or not to Stay - That is the question


The European Union dates back over 50 years.  Its purpose was to unite the then European nations not only politically but economically with the hopes that such unification would bring about peace to the continent.  From the European Coal and Steel Community to the European Economic Community to the Current European Union, the original 6 members have now more than quadrupled in number making the current size of the union 28 Member States ranging from Balkan, to Anglo Saxon to Mediterranean States.

195 Nations Set Path to Keep Temperature Rise Well Below 2 Degrees Celsius

The Paris Agreement for the first time brings all nations into a common cause based on their historic, current and future responsibilities. The universal agreement’s main aim is to keep a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius and to drive efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The 1.5 degree Celsius limit is a significantly safer defense line against the worst impacts of a changing climate. Additionally, the agreement aims to strengthen the ability to deal with the impacts of climate change. To reach these ambitious and important goals, appropriate financial flows will be put in place, thus making stronger action by developing countries and the most vulnerable possible, in line with their own national objectives.

Overall, Austria’s integration policies were evaluated as being “halfway favourable”, however the results also showed that there is room for improvement in areas such as political participation and access to nationality.

 France: In order to improve the reception conditions of migrants, an internal memorandum has been sent to the competent services on March 12th 2015, to abolish the medical examination compulsory for certain categories of migrants, in particular foreign students applying for a change of status.
