First of all happy new year to all our dear readers (constantly increasing). NEU is back. With an issue about how the Croatian Presidency of the Union will be during this Semester. Curiosity is high, due to the fact that we are speaking about one of the representatives if the so called “new Europe”, one of those country which see The European Union as a goal achieved after a long road, and a source of great opportunities. It seems that the newcomers are the more euro-enthusiasts today. Is it true? We will try to investigate this and other related issues in depth. And we will try to begin the new decade with a new hope in a peaceful and fruitful future for our beloved Europe. Old and new. Have a good reading!
