Nigeria’s Volatile Delta

22 March 2007. If corrupt is the adjective most often used to describe politics in Nigeria, the word that most aptly portrays the landscape of its oil-rich south seems to be hellish.

A European Constitution. "Does the European Union have a Constitution? Does it need one?" by Jean-Claude Piris discusses the present day constitutional arrangements for the European Central Bank, Parliament,Council, Commission and Court of Justice. He discusses how the EU's constitutional charter could be transformed into a constitution like that of a state, and whether this would be feasible. Other measures for tackling the democratic deficit are also analysed inn this paper from the Jean Monnet Programme. For more materials on the possibility of a European Constitution see the European Constitution Watch pages of L'Institut Français des Relations Internationales and the Campaign for a European Federal Constitution.
