    Focus On Europe [#3150] Is The Celtic Lion Roaring Or Snoring? BOSNIA: BORDER TENSIONS - At its heart, the EU is designed to break down borders. But since Croatia became a member of the bloc last summer, life on its border has become much harder for the Bosnians on the other side. In some towns, like Metkovic, the border runs through entire streets and local farmers are constantly finding themselves up against customs regulations and time-consuming border controls. The Bosnian government failed to introduce a legal framework allowing goods to be transported through the border crossings. Now farmers are stuck with their harvests because their home is in Croatia but their fields are in Bosnia. The livelihoods of many residents in this no man's land are at stake.
    GERMANY: WHAT NEXT FOR THE GURLITT COLLECTION? - The recent discovery of Cornelius Gurlitt's art collection sent shockwaves around the world. The son of a well-known art dealer, he kept an astonishing trove of art hidden in his Munich apartment for decades. The rightful owners are outraged that German authorities had been aware of the case for some time. Investigators found around 1400 artworks looted by the Nazis in Cornelius Gurlitt's home, including works by Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee and Otto Dix. The discovery met with incomprehension around the world: why did the Bavarian authorities not go public with the case when it first came to light 17 months ago? Shouldn't Germany, of all countries, be making every effort to establish the provenance of this art trove? The rightful heirs are hoping for restitution, but it's possible that at least some of these works of art will end up in museums or even be returned to Gurlitt.
    IRELAND: INTERNATIONAL BAILOUT EXIT - After 3 years, Ireland is set to leave the EU-IMF bailout later this month. The country is widely seen as having made significantly better financial progress than Greece and Portugal, but it's only just emerging from recession. Is it really out of the woods? Brian McKeon runs a construction company and believes the Irish economy is getting back on its feet. But not everyone agrees. Matthew Baston is a trained teacher in his early 20s. He's unemployed and opting to leave the country and start a new life in Australia. His sister is already there. There is growing concern in Ireland about the exodus of young people.
    ITALY: BIG BROTHER'S WATCHING MOTORISTS - Italy's roads are notoriously dangerous. Car insurers recently introduced incentives for careful driving, but the scheme has its detractors, who are worried about what it means for data privacy. Conscientious motorists can now pay less insurance thanks to what's called telematics technology, an integrated use of telecommunications and informatics. Insurance companies are convinced that Italy's roads are already safer and that the accident rate has dropped by 40%. But the scheme also has its critics, with some motorists worried about data privacy. Telematics-enabled vehicle tracking allows for the monitoring of the location, movements, status and behavior of a vehicle.
