It is probably as much a trait of the academic profession as a mirror of the times we live in that the contributions featured in this issue circle around one theme: failure. Failure has many faces. It can be personal as in the case of Dimitrios Pachtitis, a young Greek who missed out on being short-listed for the second stage of an EPSO competition by just 3 points (discussed in : Jaime Rodriguez Medal, ‘Transparency in the Staff Selection Procedure of the EU Institutions: Comments on the Pachtitis Case’). It can also be institutional. Sergii Shcherbak’s article on Bitcoin, very timely in light of the latest warnings issued by the European Central Bank, the Banca d’Italia and the French police, is both a plea for the regulation of the virtual currency as well as a demonstration of the EU’s and Member States’ apathy in this field (‘How Should Bitcoin Be Regulated?’).
