Speeches at the Award Ceremony Reinhard Mohn Prize 2017

This year’s recipient, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, is recognized for his role as a pioneer and visionary of digital transformation in Europe. As President of Estonia, he decisively shaped his home country’s path to becoming a world-renowned “smart country” for more than ten years. However, awarding the Reinhard Mohn Prize to Toomas Hendrik Ilves is not merely a tribute to his past achievements, but marks as well a call for action to decision-makers in Germany and around the world: Let us learn from Estonians’ positive openmindedness towards digital technologies and treat the latter both as an opportunity and a challenge in shaping our social, political and economic systems. read more

Boosting Trade in Services in the Digitalisation Era

Trade with digital services has been growing quickly over the last years. But Germany is using its potential in this area only insufficiently: in a ranking of 28 advanced economies it only made the 19th place. The reason for this poor placement is lacking infrastructure but also a hesitancy of firms and consumers to use the new technologies. read more

Policy Performance and Governance Capacities in the OECD and EU (2017)

Social inequality, climate change, global migration, international terrorism, and the consequences of the worldwide economic and financial crisis remain major political projects on all governments' agendas. At the same time, however, opportunities to engage in long-term-oriented policy are compromised in many countries due to the advances being made by nationalist populism. In this regard, the fact that the international community is drifting apart on issues of democracy quality and the rule of law is alarming. These are the summary findings of this year's edition of the Sustainable Governance Indicators (SGI), which assesses governance and reforms in all EU and OECD states on the basis of 136 indicators. read more

Trump & Brexit

The rising protectionism worldwide and, more specifically, the political antics of the incumbent U.S. President, Donald Trump, have given strong momentum to what some observers have already called “Europe’s Asia Pivot”. Furthermore, Brexit means that the European Union is facing an at least partial economic disintegration. Against this backdrop it is all the more important to find new partners and to strengthen or reorient relations with old partners, Asia being one of them. The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) with currently 53 members already gives European-Asian relations an institution that would lend itself to this purpose, since the promotion of economic cooperation is an important pillar in the ASEM process. This Focus Paper argues that in the future, Asia and Europe could make greater use of this platform in order to further expand the framework conditions for European-Asian trade and investment relations. read more
