How to Deal with Post-Coup Turkey?

In the debate, 26/09/16

After the failed coup d'état in July this year the EU has to re-position itself vis à vis post-coup Turkey. Finding a formulation that satisfies the EU and is acceptable to Turkey will not be easy.

The Malaise of the Old Left Represents an Opportunity for Degrowth

In the debate, 26/09/16

Authors:

These days, the degrowth movement is not interested in provocation anymore. Instead it wants to stimulate discussions amongst the people who believe that it is possible to decolonise our minds. Vincent Liegey, the coordinator of the latest Degrowth Conference says that the movement’s impact is already visible in many party programmes.

Why Joseph Stiglitz is wrong

In the debate, 22/09/16

Authors:

Translations: ES   FR   IT  

In his latest book the American Nobel prize winner argues for ‘a smooth exit’ from the euro. Unfortunately, his stance reflects a deep misunderstanding of the realities of the old continent.

What can the U.S. Green Party learn from Europe?

In the debate, 20/09/16

Authors:

US Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein often cites examples from Europe as a model for the US to try to imitate. From domestic health care to foreign affairs, there seems to be no issue that Europe isn’t doing better than the US on. Yet could she be missing a much more useful example from Europe: how to actually do Green politics?

Is Europe's old order too big to fail?

Are the two major party blocs that have dominated European politics since the immediate post-WWII period too big to fail? The evidence suggests not — so what are they going to do about it?

How to mend the European heart?

In the debate, 07/09/16

Authors:

Translations: PL  

The question of the future of European integration became especially important after the “Leave” vote in the referendum on UK membership in the European Union. Do we need just better common institutions – or do we need a new vision, as Dutch author Dick Pels, suggests?

Elusive Sovereignty

In the debate, 07/09/16

Authors:

Translations: FR  

The Brexit vote has been interpreted by some as demonstrating a desire to take back sovereignty and control. Yet defining exactly what this missing sovereignty amounts to, and what its place in the world of today is, seems to persistently elude us.

Quo vadis, Polonia?

In the debate, 05/09/16

Authors:

Translations: FR  

Since the crash of Polish President Lech Kaczyński's plane in 2010, a period of renewed nationalism centred around Catholicism, conservatism, and an ‘us’ versus ‘them’ mentality has taken hold in Poland. This wave of populism has led to an increase in division and violence.

THE RISE AND FALL OF ORAH

In the debate, 01/09/16

Authors:

Translations: HR  

When Croatia's first Green Party (OraH) emerged, many held high hopes that it could consolidate its position as a Green alternative in Croatia's political landscape. However, it has struggled to overcome the obstacles it has faced, as well as to resolve its own internal flaws.

The Commons: A Frame for Thinking Beyond Growth

In the debate, 30/08/16

Authors:

The main concern in a commons economy is not to compete or think in terms of business models, but rather to make the best use of shared resources so that no one is left behind. In this interview, commons scholar Silke Helfrich discusses the connection between degrowth and the commons, and how these two concepts can help us build a sustainable economy.

DAVID CAMERON AND THE THREE ‘WHICHES’

In the debate, 29/08/16

Authors:

To what extent were the outcomes of the recent plebiscites held in the UK determined by the formulation of the question and the method of counting votes? If these are significant factors, this points to some puzzling quirks in the country's voting system, as well as some far-reaching flaws in its democracy.

The Curious Case of Croatia

In the debate, 26/08/16

Authors:

Unlike many other post-communist countries which experienced fragmentation and instability, Croatia’s party system has retained its basic stability for a long time. Yet a significant section of the electorate has sought an alternative – and as a result a succession of new political actors have emerged, with varying degrees of success. But how are they likely to fare at the country’s September parliamentary elections?

Beyond the Border

In the debate, 23/08/16

Authors:

Mass migration is the 21st century’s revolution - leading, in turn, to a counter-revolution which threatens the core idea of the European Union. The refugee crisis has resulted in the reinforcement of stereotypes that Eastern and Western Europe already held about each other.
