  • HOW EUROPE LOST ITS WAY BETWEEN ROME AND KIEV
    HOW EUROPE LOST ITS WAY BETWEEN ROME AND KIEV Professor Jan Zielonka PART OF SDN'S CONVERSATIONS ON DEMOCRACY SERIES European integration has been an enormous success since its inception in the Treaty of Rome in 1957. For the next five decades European Union (EU) member states enjoyed unprecedented peace and prosperity. But now this legacy is being questioned. The EU has fallen out of grace with the public. At the recent elections for the European parliament, parties determined to curb EU powers came clearly on top in several member states. What went wrong and why? Some commentators point to misguided policies for handling the Eurozone crisis; they made the EU look stingy, rigid and oppressive. Other pundits complain about the EU’s imperfect institutions; they are complex, sluggish and hostage to member states' veto. Yet others point to poor leadership. Presidents of European bodies are particularly uncharismatic figures. Leaders of the most powerful member states are chiefly interested in enhancing their parochial national interests. These are all important factors, but the roots of the EU’s downfall go much deeper. The EU has been unable to cope with the impact of three “revolutions” that have shaken the foundations of the European system in the past 25 years.

  • Is the EU doomed? - ABC late night live with Professor Jan Zielonka
    Is the EU doomed? - ABC late night live with Professor Jan Zielonka Jan Zielonka, Professor of European Politics at St Antony's College, University of Oxford The European Union has been widely regarded as the most successful modern integration project, but Jan Zielonka argues that instead of facilitating integration, the EU impedes it. Instead, he proposes a radically different concept for Europe, one which might not include an EU.

  • Between Philosophy And Action: The Story Of The Media Reform
    Between Philosophy And Action: The Story Of The Media Reform Britain’s phone hacking scandal and the consequent launch of an unprecedented wide ranging inquiry into regulation of the media has created a new space for public debate on media reforms and, in particular, how to restructure media systems that serve the interests of citizens above those of media owners. This paper will reflect on the experience of the Media Reform Coalition - formerly known as the Co-ordinating Committee for Media Reform - a network established at Goldsmiths University to “co-ordinate the most effective contribution by NGOs, academics and media campaigners to the Leveson Inquiry and the Communications Review” (Media Reform, 2011). Drawing on this UK-based case study, the paper aims to unveil the principles and paradigms that underpinned the Coalition’s campaign and to elucidate the key challenges it has confronted. There is a pressing need to re-articulate media reform as a movement for social justice aligned with other more recognisable groups engaged in resistance to glob- al capitalism. In conjunction with this, there is a need to think laterally about how to campaign effectively with minimal resources; to set up and maintain strategic alliances with civil society groups both within and beyond media activist circles; to focus conceptually on media owners as the primary targets of resistance; and to reach out to both professional and citizen journalists.
