Europe as a republic

The story of Europe in the twenty-first century

The system currently known as the European Union is the embodiment of post-democracy, says Ulrike Guérot. The solution: to turn Europe on its head. For the Europe of tomorrow is a European Republic, the embodiment of a transnational community. [Polish version added] [ more ]

Leaping the boundaries

"Soundings" fashions new languages of solidarity; "Vagant" searches in vain for humanitarian corridors leading to Europe; "Ny Tid" says the essay is a way to political engagement; "Osteuropa" analyses state intervention as practiced in Russia and Hungary; "Merkur" is haunted by selfies picturing the German chancellor; "Index on Censorship" celebrates Shakespearean dissent; and "Letras Libres" traces parallels and disparities between Shakespeare and Cervantes.

New Eurozine partner: Belgrade Journal of Media and Communications


Belgrade Journal of Media and Communications has joined the Eurozine network. The biannual publication is committed to the political decoding of discursive formations: "Our aim is to produce a series of special issues dedicated to crucial questions regarding 'compulsive discourses' on the end of history, politics and geography, as well as on post-humanity, postmodernity and post-secularism, among others."

The publication of the first of two recent issues on the European crisis was timed to coincide with the announcement of Serbia's new status as an "associate member of the EU". It was here that executive editor Obrad Savic announced: "Inspired by recent political trends, we are ready to create a permanent 'public platform' for self-corrective lessons on the current, ongoing process of the Europeanization of Serbia and the entire Balkans."

The same issue also dealt with the "colossal cosmopolitanization of all of Europe", thus setting the tone for future issues attempting "to reconnect and renew lost relations between the local academic community and its international partners and friends".

Run out of the Faculty for Media and Communications at Singidunum University in Belgrade, Serbia, editor-in-chief Nadezda Popovic Perisic heads the journal up, alongside Savic who, for many years, edited the influential Belgrade Circle Journal, which has now ceased publication.
