"Alice Teodorescu: There is only one party with a well thought out immigration policy for the EU"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. For me it has always european issues has been very important and concrete. My family and I left communist Romania and came to Sweden just days before the fall of the berlin wall in 1989. To get to live in a free and open Europe is the dream."
"30 years later, I, like millions of other swedes, vote in the elections to the european Parliament. It is a time to decide – but not for the symbolic reasons that the debate is dominated by. "
"It is not a choice between Orban or Macron, not a choice between good and evil, not a choice for or against the EU. It is not even a choice for more or less EUROPE. It is a choice about which kind of european cooperation we want and, therefore, the policies that the concrete shall be kept."
"the EU was founded as a peace and frihetsprojekt to bring stability to the previously war-torn continent. As such, it is unusually successful. But nothing lasts forever if it is not maintained and developed on the basis of a well thought out and cohesive idea."
"the Union has in recent years been tone-deaf and unable to deal with the really complex and common issues of our time: flyktingfördelningen, climate change, terrorism and law enforcement. "
"instead, cooperation has increasingly slipped into the detailed regulation of areas that reasonably can be handled by the member states themselves. The so-called social pillar, which concerns the welfare and employment issues, is just a cautionary example of such a development."
"For me it is given to vote for the Conservatives in the european Elections. It is all about the credibility the Party has been a driving force for european cooperation longer than any other party in Swedish politics. But it is also about the concrete – nothing in reality gets the better of mere symbolic policies, the theoretical debate on how small or large the EU should be, or naive ”yes” to everything only it's about the EU. "
"the Conservatives focus on political issues in order to solve real and difficult problems is also needed in Europe. The conservatives, for example, only center-right party with a well thought out immigration policy for the european Elections. In addition, it is only as the breeding ground for populism and extremism can be pushed back."
"We need a more effective and more relevant EU-co-operation. EU looking for joint solutions to the massive problems that the member states cannot resolve on their own. These problems include, not least, the lack of european border protection. "
"If the EU is to be able to maintain the key principle of the abolished internal borders, external borders must be kept intact. But despite the fact that it belongs to the heart of its policies to protect the common external borders failed union fatal during the refugee crisis in 2015. The consequences of this failure has created, and continues to create, great friction between and within the member states."
"But the solution is not to further supranationalism and integration of the member states. The solution is to focus on the core tasks, that is to say, on creating well-functioning societies. For the EU's part, it's all about the two tasks: ”security” and ”economic freedom”. "
"It is when the EU and, by extension, the individual states, can not guarantee the security of citizens and the security that liberalism is fundamentally under threat."
"Concrete is it all in the coming years if, among other things, to strengthen european police cooperation, to stop the free movement of criminals, as well as to contribute to a more controlled and predictable immigration. "
"the Measures that are absolutely necessary to protect our open, liberal democracies in both the short and the long term."
"We care about the future of the EU, should speak plainly. About the shortcomings, but also about its many possibilities. "
"the End of the election on may 26 is substantially: we Shall deal jointly with real, comprehensive and cross-border problems? Or should we let the imaginary conflicts and mere symbolic policies continue to obscure? "
