How is the EU presently utilising imagery from space to halt illegal exploitation of resources? What are the technological and political obstacles hindering further progress in this regard? This paper provides a survey of EU space activities and makes recommendations regarding the EU’s role in successfully managing natural resources across the globe from outer space including the suggestion that a European Union Geological Survey be established.

The Europeanisation of Maltese Foreign Policy

Daniel Fiott - former Research Fellow, Madariaga - College of Europe Foundation 

Mediterranean Quarterly - Vol. 21, No. 3 (Summer, 2010)

Daniel Fiott, Research Fellow at the Madariaga - College of Europe Foundation, recently published an article through the Mediterranean Quarterly on the Europeanisation of Maltese Foreign Policy. The article focuses on the degree to which Maltese foreign policy has become Europeanised because of its membership in the European Union. Fiott focuses on three trends resulting from the Europeanisation process: first, the ways in which Malta's national policies and political structures have become altered to meet the demands of EU membership; second, the manner in which Malta projects its own interests at the EU level; and third, the degree to which Maltese national identity has transformed since becoming an EU member state in 2004. Fiott then provides a brief overview of the particular national characteristics of Maltese politics.
