In the debate, 25/10/16


Translations: FR  

Turkey holds a critical position, both geographically and strategically, in the fight to halt the spread of IS and its entrenchment in Syria. Yet the approach adopted so far by the EU demonstrates an astonishing blindness to the scope of the problem, and its potential consequences for the region.

Promoting the interrail-pass, yet banning the night train?

In the debate, 18/10/16


Translations: NL  

The idea of a free interrail pass for every EU citizen on their 18th birthday to explore Europe's diversity is enticing. However the EU's emphasis on liberalisation is leading to the loss of night trains.

A Conversation that cannot wait

In the debate, 13/10/16


A broad coalition seems to be gathering pace in Ireland, and extending far beyond the country's borders, calling for a reform of Ireland’s abortion laws - the most stringent in Europe. A courageous campaign combined with a shift in public attitudes could mean real change is finally on the horizon.

"We need to bring back the sublime in politics"

In the debate, 05/10/16

Authors: and

The anti-government protests in Poland seem quite disconnected from the legacy of Solidarity, which seems to have been left behind, while it remains to be seen whether the emergence of new political actors signals a genuine shift in the political landscape. An interview with Sociologist Jan Sowa.

Responding to Brexit: creating a European Foundational Assembly

In the debate, 05/10/16


Translations: FR  

Brexit was a wakeup call that something about the EU’s relationship to its citizens needs to change. Forcing more integration would push people away – instead, giving citizens a say and a stake in the EU’s future through regional citizen assemblies may be a path towards a truly representative and interactive EU.

The Nordic countries would gain from welcoming asylum seekers and refugees

In the debate, 04/10/16


Translations: FI  

Since 2015, more than one million asylum seekers have entered Europe. Of these, roughly 250,000 have come to the Nordic countries, prompting them to reassess their immigration systems and services. As they greatly benefit from population growth, they ought to welcome humanitarian immigrants, providing sufficient services and education instead of resorting to panic measures.

In the debate, 29/09/16

Brexit: a scene from the Anthropocene

In the debate, 27/09/16


Translations: NL  

Slightly over two months ago, the ‘Brexit’ vote took place, leaving a lot of us in horror, lethargy, or at least confusion. If our confusion has receded as time has gone by, it is because we have become used to this new reality, not because it started making sense.

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

Vincent Liegey, the coordinator of the latest Degrowth Conference says that the movement’s impact is already visible in many party programmes.

In the debate, 22/09/16
