🇮🇹 As expected, Mari#Draghihi calls for the Italian Parliament to renew him full trust to complete his reform agenda He suggests that’s what Italians want & need due to the inability of the political system to offer an alternative There Is No Alternativcorriere.it/politica/22_lu…uo
The media spin around the Italian crisis is as unprecedented unfounded: #Draghi never lost his parliamentary majority (what he needs to govern), but following the departure of 5-star movement he asked remaining parties to close ranks Draghi set to stay #Italy

As the EU rethinks its energy mix(es) and secures multiple gas contracts with African countries, what are the unintended consequences for the African continent? To make its economies dependent on fossil fuel (by thus curtailing its development) theenergymix.com/2022/07/14/wer…
Despite all the media spin, Mario #Draghi remains likely to pursue his reform agenda in #Italy, with less ample parliamentary support and some symbolic concessions to 5 stars + League (prepping for elections) The TINA mantra is there to stay! bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
My prediction is for Mario Draghi to find a new parliamentary majority in the next few days. This reshuffle will lead #Italy to the next #elections in 2023 and may bring #Draghi to the Italian presidency #Draghi #Italy

Should we ban lobbying for some industries by preventing them from gaining access to decision-makers? Will be hosting an Oxford-style, ideology-free debate with opposing motions & cross-examination during the @TheGoodLobby Summer Academy. Will start from #FCTC @oneillinstitute twitter.com/vicky_cann/sta…
6. Over 70 leading thinkers and doers in the politics of influence’s space will soon gather in Bilbao to discuss the outer limits of today’s lobbying practices in the light of existing frameworks and #UberFiles Agenda: thegoodlobby.eu/wp-content/upl…
5. Rather than constraining lobbying (mission impossible), the challenge is to democratising it, so as to enable all interests to gain a seat at the table. That’s our mission @TheGoodLobby and my team’s ongoing research work @HECParis #ESG
4. So, if there’s anything new about #UberFiles is to signal today’s greater public awareness about the negative effects of corporate political power over society at large This is set to create an unprecedented political demand for intervention cc @StiglerCenter @ErbInstitute
3 Most academics don’t engage with business interest; a few do so, either out of conviction, search for impact or for (little) money. Regardless of their motive, their sole obligation is to disclose their tie with relevant company. That’s what my colleagues did.
2. Existing rules governing lobbying are unfit for purpose. They impose loose disclosure requirements on the lobbying side (the business) but virtually nothing on the lobbied (politician) side, and enforcement of the latter rules left to political level
1. After being tolerated for decades, self-serving lobbying is questioned today. It not longer fit with the responsible business’ standards imposed by investors, employees and customers. The #UberFiles are just the last manifestation of growing rejection towards negative lobbying

Here’s the model for an Independent EU Ethics Body that would be capable of enforcing existing EU ethics standards. europarl.europa.eu/news/en/press-…
Here’s the legal basis authorizing and requiring @vonderleyen to act on former Commissioner Neelie Kroes She’s currently receiving a pension from the EU, but that could (should) be withdrawn by the @EUCourtPress
I call on ⁦@vonderleyen⁩ to react on #UberFiles by: - opening investigation on Neelie Kroes’ breach of ethics duties during / after leaving office - reminding ⁦⁦@VeraJourova⁩ to propose #EUEthicsBody as demanded by EU parliament+Council theguardian.com/news/2022/jul/…
Are you also wondering what would have happened if the #UberFiles had been disclosed ahead of the last French presidential elections? Timing matters lemonde.fr/en/les-decodeu… #presidentielles2022

Can @eucopresident excludes a member state from #EUCO? Good question by @daniel_freund, but 👇🏼 poor, ambiguous response by Charles Michel who deliberately fails to say: - Art 7(3) may lead exclusion - as well as Art 50 and EU-26 could dispose exclusion any tim#Hungaryrtwitter.com/daniel_freund/…ne
