Britain faces a triple contradiction

Jean Pisani-Ferry |

If Boris Johnson can negotiate agreements that are better than the EU system, it would be a serious challenge for the 27.  He was believed to be an entertainer, he turned out to be a political strategist. Thanks to a crushing victory last December, where he managed to remove the Labour party from its working-class […]

Awkward partner is now out, the Rule of Law debate is here to stay

Gulay Icoz |

Just as the UK government is making its final preparations for the fast-approaching Brexit Day, I am just wondering who is looking forward to the Transition Period, and all the drama that might follow it. My super cautious and alarmed older brother, who is a British Passport holder, has already made his final visit to […]

Terrorism in the United Kingdom: Securitizing Narrative, Surveillance Practices and the Right to Privacy

Crossroads Europe |

By Romana Oliveira Pinhal | In the United Kingdom terrorism is presented, by the British government, as one of the most serious and dangerous threats to national security and justified the introduction of legislative, political and operational measures aimed at combating the terrorist threat.

The Brexit Cold War

Simon Usherwood, PoliticsatSurrey |

Change is coming to Brexit. At the end of next week, the UK will leave the European Union, having now completed the passage of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill through the Lords: EU ratification is a given.

Forty years of green

Albrecht Sonntag |

The foundation, on 13 January 1980 in Karlsruhe, of a nation-wide ecological party in West Germany came as a surprise. Not the idea itself: the time was ripe for creating a strong political movement based on environmental concerns, frustration with representative democracy, and radically pacifist convictions in the middle of the Cold War arms race. […]

Settling in for transition

Simon Usherwood, PoliticsatSurrey |

Transition remains the Cinderella of Brexit: unnoticed by the ugly sisters of Withdrawal and the New Relationship, but actually rather important. This might have been understandable during the chaos of the past year, when most political efforts were being diverted into securing UK ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement, but it seems much less so now, […]

Differentiation: Problem or solution?

John Erik Fossum |

A multi-speed or multi-tiered Europe has often been presented as a solution to Europe’s current challenges. But this kind of differentiation can generate democratic problems, argues EU3D Scientific Coordinator John Erik Fossum. In the last decade, the EU has faced a broad range of crises and challenges, such as the financial and Eurozone crises, the refugee […]

Zane Šime |

If the earlier blog entries (October, November, December and January) covered the thematic scope of the envisaged research project, then this one is dedicated to the complexities of data processing, namely, qualitative interviews, the challenges in analysing the acquired insights.

Economic Recovery Strengthens Public Support for the Euro

JCMS |

The long-term sustainability of the euro depends heavily on its ability to attract widespread public support. This is one of the main conclusions I and my co-authors reach in our most recent academic work in this field, which draws its evidence from a uniquely large Eurobarometer database and applies the latest econometric techniques. This blog highlights our most salient findings and underscores their relevance in the current policy context.
