We Are Europe!

Ulrich Beck warns against the dangers of saving the Euro along the lines of German euro-nationalism. Instead, he suggests a revived European democracy 'from below' which encourages civic activity across a political and cultural community.

The Spinelli Group Manifesto

The manifesto of the Spinelli Group aims to push the process of European integration further at a time when the crisis threatens to shake it apart. The premise is that challenges like climate change, resource exhaustian and financial regulation cannot be dealt with at a national level and instead require a post-national and federal Europe.
