Open Europe's guide to the big events of 2015

In my capacity as a member of the International Relations Committee of the Liberal Democrats, I am trying to keep abreast of events in both Europe and elsewhere. Open Europe are, to my mind, an interesting source of news and views, and the piece by their Director, Mats Persson, on likely key events this year, is well worth a read.

Personally, I'd add the negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the possible impact if more facts emerge linking Jean-Claude Juncker to possible sweetheart tax deals that took place whilst he was Prime Minister of Luxembourg. Given that his party is in opposition there now, it may be that there is little desire to protect him.
