Maidan: A left perspective
"openDemocracy" condemns the European Union's inhumane treatment of migrants; "Kultura Liberalna" talks to Anne Applebaum; in "Blätter", Rolf Hosfeld marks the centenary of the Armenian genocide; "Esprit" re-reads Kostas Axelos on the destiny of modern Greece; "Varlik" remembers Yasar Kemal; "Letras Libres" contemplates a concept of tolerance turned upside down, after 10 years of cartoon controversy; "Spilne" rejects the pro-/anti-westernism surrounding the Maidan protests; "Samtiden" takes stock of last year's Norwegian novels; and "Polar" critiques a new DIY mentality in the search for alternative ways of life.
