95 Theses

On the occasion of a lecture given at the European Union Institute by EU President Herman van Rompuy, a political collective of PhD researchers posted a list of greivances to the door of the church in which he was talking. The accompanying statement reaffirms the founding values of the European Union and argues that they must be reasserted to maintain the dignity of Europeans against EU policy and the power of the markets.

a group of students and researchers made an intervention and posted a list of 95 theses criticizing EU president Herman von Rompuy, who was delivering a speech for betraying the founding tenants of the EU against the interests of European citizens arguing that values of human dignity, freedom, equality, democracy, the rule of law and solidarity are founding principles of the European Union.

Euromemorandum 2012

The EuroMemo Group's annual report, Euromemorandum, this year criticises EU policies that have led to the crisis and lays out a set of policy proposals that promote more integrated - but more progressive - European economic policies. The focus is on strengthening democracy and social justice by reforming trade policy, rejecting austerity, protecting labour rights, and proposing alternative models for growth.

Another Road for Europe

Another Road for Europe lays out positive proposals for Europe to emerge from its crisis based on reformed values of social justice, environmental responsibility, democracy and peace. The appeal aims to articulate a program around which coordinated action can be organised across Europe.
