    A call earlier this week between President-elect Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May — in which they agreed on the need for more NATO member states to commit two percent of their GDP on defense spending — brought European security debate back into the limelight.

Earlier British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that Europe should “step up to the...

But the sanctions appear likely to remain in place for now, especially those slapped over Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula seized by Russia in March 2014, despite the legal and political challenges of maintaining them. A series of Reuters investigations recently showed how European companies including German retailer Metro and France’s Auchan were doing business in Crimea despite the punitive sanctions regime there....

    The EU Commission opened an in-depth probe into a Polish tax on the retail sector Tuesday, concerned that the progressive rates based on turnover give companies with low turnover an unfair advantage. The European Commission’s injunction requires Poland to suspend the application of the tax until the Commission has concluded its assessment. This follows a decision the Commission took in July this year on a progressive turnover-based tax on the retail sector in Hungary, which the Commission found to be in breach of EU state aid rules, because it granted a selective advantage to companies with low turnover over their...

    The more liberal Francis was always going to have a problem with Poland's more traditionalist Catholic hierarchy Poland plays a waiting game: how senior clergy are biding their time for a more conservative pope. The Polish bishops will have given Pope Francis a suitably polite welcome on his arrival in Krakow this week. But behind the scenes, they are determined to ignore most of what he says and sit out his papacy in the hope of getting a more conservative successor.

    On Wednesday, July 27, Pope Francis arrived in Krakow, Poland, in order to celebrate World Youth Day. As part of this trip, the pope commented on controversy surrounding Muslim migration to Europe. Many of these comments reveal an apparent ignorance of Polish history and current reality, a privileging of Marxist and culturally relativist worldviews that distort reality, and an abandonment of true Christian ideals. I write as a devout Catholic. I wish my pope would read what I write here.

    Announcement highlights tensions between Francis and Polish hierarchy after closed door meeting last night A senior bishop has said that the Church in Poland will refuse communion to divorced and remarried Catholics despite the landmark family document from Pope Francis which opened up the possibility. Archbishop Stanislaw Gadecki, the President of the Polish Bishops’ Conference, said that giving communion could not be allowed following a period of pastoral discernment - something which Francis has advocated - adding that if remarried divorcees had a valid first marriage they cannot receive the eucharist. His remarks came just hours after the Pope’s arrival...

    Bishops’ spokesman stresses Church in Poland has welcomed refugees as country prepares to welcome Francis for World Youth DayJust days before Pope Francis’ visit to Poland a Vatican statement has denounced an “artificially created fear of Muslims” which it says is being fed by some political parties in the country. The press release, released by the Holy See but written by spokesman for the Polish Bishops, describes Poland as “ethnically homogenous” and that immigration is a relatively new phenomenon seen as strange to the average Polish person. “For this reason, even through the official statistics relating to foreign citizens legally...

    A study released by the Pew Research Center on Monday shows a startling development in European attitudes towards Middle Eastern refugees. In eight of the ten countries surveyed, majorities of citizens polled believe incoming refugees increase the likelihood of terrorism at home.
