Welcome back. To a brand new NEU season, approaching our 100th issue (and we are very proud of it). Welcome also to a brand new Commission in the European Union. Several new portfolios, new policies starting, new relatonships with national governments (the new yellow-red Italian one, for example?). The situation is dynamic. The direction uncertain. The goal of NEU remains the same. In this issue every article will shed light on one Commissioner. Hoping you will enjoy, we wish you a very good reading heading to number 100!
