A frustración suíza

Liñas de investigación International Relations
Apartados xeográficos Europe
O “Cumio pola Paz” que acolleu Suiza o mes pasado deixou un regueiro de leccións importantes. Había unha intención de facer taboa rasa e impoñer unha solución de parte co aval dunha maioría de países. Pero non funcionou. A seguir, a UE anunciou o 14º paquete de sancións contra Rusia. Previsiblemente, tampouco funcionará. Mentres a economía europea segue estancada, a rusa mostra unha vitalidade inagardada. A dinámica de substitución das importacións que promoven esas sancións e as demandas do complexo militar-industrial favorecen o emprego e o consumo. Moscova está lonxe aínda de mostrar unha febleza que a conduza á mesa de negociacións coa cabeza gacha.

Tras un turbulento inicio do mes xuño, o 22 de xuño a UE e China decidiron darse unha tregua para evitar a escalada dos aranceis aos vehículos eléctricos. O comisario de comercio da UE, Valdis Dombrovskis, e o ministro de Comercio chinés, Wang Wentao, anunciaron nesa data que a proposta de suba dos aranceis aos vehículos chineses en Europa ía ser revisada. Para isto, anunciouse que a data límite sería o mes de xullo, no que comezarían a aplicarse as subas previstas en caso de non haber acordo.

Ao día seguinte de que Hungría asumise a presidencia de seis meses do Consello da UE, o primeiro ministro húngaro Viktor Orbán comezou unha incrible actividade internacional, a pesar de que a presidencia da UE non outorga ningún dereito a representar á Unión nas relacións internacionais. Con todo, o político húngaro recorreu á súa propia "misión de paz" porque, segundo as súas palabras, "Europa necesita paz", en particular, porque "a guerra comezou a afectar o crecemento económico e a nosa competitividade".

Nos últimos anos, o termo “paradiplomacia” acadou un considerable nivel de popularidade e uso nas Relacións Internacionais, caracterizado pola ambigüidade terminolóxica que o subxace e pola degradación do sistema estatal-céntrico, vinculado por suposto á iniciativa de organizacións como a Unión Europea, que xeraron un considerable impulso no papel das entidades rexionais mediante a reformulación do Tratado de Maastricht ou a creación do Comité das Rexións.
