A conference for the Europe we need

By Domènec Ruiz Devesa / 24 January, 2020

Climate neutrality and the social pillar of the European Union should be part and parcel of the upcoming Conference on the Future of Europe. This Conference should make the voice of ordinary citizens and organised civil society heard – and it’s a unique opportunity to pull all strings together to...

European solidarity – added value for the Polish judiciary independence

By Bartosz Rydlinski / 17 January, 2020

On Saturday, January 11th, we witnessed a March of a Thousand Robes’ in Warsaw. It was an unprecedented event because nobody remembers such a manifestation of legal circles in recent Polish history. Thousands of judges, attorneys, solicitors and prosecutors have taken part in a silent protest against the ongoing illiberal...

Dealing with English

By László Andor / 8 January, 2020

2020 will be a year of two deals. One between the European Union and the United Kingdom, and the other one is the Green Deal of the EU itself. These two deals could not be more different in nature. What connects them is some serious confusion stemming from the various...

From COP 25 to the European Green Deal: Can Europe break up the climate impasse?

By Maria João Rodrigues / 19 December, 2019

Despite a large mobilisation of citizens across the world and in Madrid in particular, the outcomes of the COP25 Climate Conference were disappointing.

Climate Justice emergency also at COP25

By Jo Leinen / 6 December, 2019

At COP25, progressives around the world will again call for mechanisms to achieve climate justice and just transition. The poor should not have to pay the bill while the rich have the money to continue a wasteful lifestyle. The European Parliament has declared a global climate emergency, as have many...

New European Commission: Big Challenges, High Expectations

By Maria João Rodrigues / 29 November, 2019

The new European Commission can open up opportunities for progressive forces to regain influence in the European direction. Over the Commission’s five-year mandate, Europe will be confronted with new global trends, and bold and progressive leadership will be needed. The focus of this European Commission is fundamentally different from that...

New Frontiers of Social Europe

By László Andor / 22 November, 2019

It is somewhat ironic that a European Commission headed by a former Social Affairs minister (Ursula von der Leyen) was almost inaugurated without the word ‘social’ appearing in the title of either commissioner. This would have been a great shame, especially at a time when the progressive family is represented...

The Brexit (and more) election

By Richard Corbett / 15 November, 2019

The UK is plunged into a December election for the first time since 1923, and the dominant issue is, of course, Brexit. Not that an election can ever be fought on one issue – and there is no shortage of other matters that feature in the campaign, from the state...
