Europe needs immigration – and common rules to manage it

By Piero Fassino / 6 June, 2020

The Italian government has recently adopted a regularisation measure for 200,000 hitherto irregular migrants. The decision was taken for two reasons: on one side to prevent the Covid19 pandemic from spreading to a population living in precarious conditions, by allowing access to the healthcare system as well as the possibility...

COVID-19 and the uncertain future of the transatlantic bond

By Nathalie Tocci / 26 March, 2020

COVID-19, the global pandemic caused by the Coronavirus, will likely become a defining feature of our age. This is not simply because this global crisis will probably have political, economic, and social repercussions reverberating across all world regions for years to come. It is mainly because these consequences may well...

Making the Case for ‘Progressive Reglobalisation’ (Part 2)

By Tony Payne / 16 March, 2020

Globalisation is not going away, which means that it needs to be reformed and managed in better ways.  Progressives need urgently to move into this debate.  But lately too many have been drawn towards a fatal embrace of nationalism and have articulated forms of ‘progressive deglobalisation’.  These are mistaken moves.  We need to turn...

Is globalisation doomed?

By Pascal Lamy / 13 March, 2020

Globalisation is under fire, because of the social injustices and environmental damage it creates, but even if painful, it still is efficient. De-globalisation would be inefficient and painful. But we have to start with focusing on the right problem, which is not globalisation but capitalism. Globalisation under the conditions of...

The future as alter-globalisation

By Heikki Patomäki / 12 March, 2020

The belief in the efficiency of free-trade globalisation is based on abstract microeconomic reasoning disconnected from our real world. From David Ricardo’s comparative advantage and Eli Heckscher and Bertil Ohlin’s neoclassical model to Paul Krugman’s somewhat more realistic new trade theory, micro-reasoning ignores the basic Keynesian insight that the overall...

Immigration: defending openness against isolationism

By Philippe Fargues / 21 February, 2020

Migration has ceased to be a hot topic. Now that the crisis is over, the European Union (EU) is devoting only limited space to it. In the Commission’s 2020 Work programme, “A Union that strives for more“, there are two brief mentions of migration: one to welcome the progress made...

Defending borders does not require closed doors but corridors

By Paolo Morozzo della Rocca / 17 December, 2019

The future of the Left: how to cross the ten ‘plus something’ percent

By Michal Sutowski / 18 October, 2019

With MPs such as: Gdula, Zawisza, Czarzasty, Zandberg, Dziemianowicz-Bak, Gill-Piatek, Konieczny and Scheuring-Wielgus – the Left in the Sejm has the best ever composed delegation that crosscuts between young and middle-aged population. It is certainly the most outstanding in the span of one and a half decades, or even, it...

Europe must stand up for its core security interests

By Leo Hoffmann-Axthelm / 27 September, 2019

Amid escalating nuclear rhetoric, the Iran Deal and INF-Treaty have collapsed – and the New START treaty is set to expire next year. The current US policy on nuclear weapons is a provocation to EU security interests: it is time for multilateral approaches to disarmament and arms control. The EU...
