January 14, 2016 - EU Institutions

Jennifer Baker presents EU Tweets of the Week, looking at the good, the bad and the ugly in the European Union Twittersphere this week:

  • Most debated: EU Member States are divided on whether to grant or not Market Economy Status to China.
  • The good: The Commission launched an unprecedented inquiry on whether Poland’s new media law has breached EU democratic standards.
  • The bad: Bad week for Belgium, as Commission deems its “Excess Profit” tax scheme illegal.
  • The uglyDenmark could pass a law asking refugees to give up on their valuables in order to pay for their accommodation while applying for asylum.
