Living Diversity – Shaping Society

Religious, cultural and linguistic diversity has always been a reality in Germany. Yet determining what constitutes success in terms of dealing with diversity on a day-to-day basis is a matter often subject to debate. Demonstrating respect for each other while living together in diversity must be cultivated but also involve the active participation of everyone affected. We experience diversity every day in our communities: in our neighborhoods, schools, at work and in our free time. The "Living Diversity - Shaping Society" publication accompanying the Reinhard Mohn Prize 2018 offers insight into how Germany can effectively target living well together in a multicultural society marked by social inclusion and respect for diversity. read more

Takes two to tax. On fair taxation of the digital economy

The ongoing digital transformation poses enormous challenges to current tax law. This is, because value creation through intangibles raises problems to two core paradigms of international tax rules: where to tax and what to tax. In order to solve these problems, the European Commission published two proposals, a so-called interim tax and a comprehensive solution. In this blogpost, Pola Schneemelcher assesses the proposals and makes the case that they do not sufficiently address the crucial question of how to value data. read more

Transformation Index BTI 2018

Managing the peaceful transition of authoritarian states to democracy and a market-economic system represents a tremendous challenge. Whether it comes to reconstituting the coherency of the state following armed conflict, expanding participation rights and the rule of law in emerging democracies, overcoming corrupt structures, fighting poverty and inequality, or establishing clear rules for stable market-economic competition, the requirements are enormous, and the pressure on responsible leaders is intense. After all, the quality of governance makes an essential contribution to the success or failure of transformation processes. read more

Should Bulgaria join the euro now? Why being a Maastricht model student isn't enough

The answer is: no – not yet. While the Bulgarian case for joining the euro seems compelling on first sight, neither Sofia nor Brussels should jump the gun now. Not only does Bulgaria still lack the institutional capacity to be a reliable member of the club; it would also loose important degrees of freedom to foster growth and deal with crises at home. This Blog Post argues that the Maastricht criteria may be a necessary, but by no means a sufficient condition for stable euro membership. Bulgaria’s accession should be based on prudence, rather than precipitation. read more
