EU Portal - European Commission 

1. An editorial  What is wrong ? 
http://www.erionet.org/EU.htm

An article focused on the latest initiatives of the European Commission

2. Great words  lousy budget 
http://www.erionet.org/YearEqOp.htm

The very good initiative of the Commission (The Year of Equal
Opportunities) has practically the same budget as the 2003 Year of
Disability (inflation considered) but deals with 6 more grounds of
discrimination in 10 more countries. The average amount given by the
Commission to its member states for each of the discrimination grounds
is very far from expectations- around 36.000 Euros per year. 

3. Cohesion, Growth, Jobs and no Roma
