Ulrich Beck, Ulrich Bielefeld, Nikola Tietze

More justice through more Europe

An interview with Ulrich Beck

While discrepancies between EU member states can be overlooked during win-win periods of growth, recession triggers xenophobic and anti-European reactions in both rich and poor countries. In interview, Ulrich Beck explains how inequality leaves the Union susceptible to decay. [more]

Aleida Assmann

Here am I, where are you?

Loneliness in the era of communication

The Internet has abolished loneliness, or rather got rid of its negative effects to a hitherto unimagined degree, writes Aleida Assmann. Borders between sociability and loneliness are shifting and the pressure of social conformity lessens as computer nerds turn into savvy heroes. [more]

Rainer Paris

Equality

A systematic argument

"Propagandists of equality" claim that the struggle for equal distribution of resources is essentially the same as the struggle for elementary opportunities for participation. They have a lot to answer for, argues Rainer Paris. [more]

Albrecht von Lucke

Propaganda of inequality

In a row over integration, prominent German intellectuals have supported elitist and determinist positions. All part of a campaign by "neo-Nietzscheans" to create acceptance of social inequality, writes Albrecht von Lucke. [more]

Göran Therborn

The killing fields of inequality

"Increasing social distance between the poorest and the richest diminishes social cohesion, which in turn means more collective problems and fewer resources for solving all our other collective problems." Göran Therborn on why inequality matters. [more]

Zsófia Bán

The Turul bird and the dinosaur

Following the political logic of pop-cultural palaeontology, Hungary's resurgent far-Right excavates archaic cultural identities for the youth of today. Mythical symbols of national strength fill the historical void felt by post-'89 generations, writes Zsófia Bán. [more]

José Casanova

Religion, European secular identities and European integration

The rapid secularization of western Europe has not diminished the unease with which Europe considers Islam in its midst. In this benchmark essay, José Casanova argues that the "Islam problem" is an indicator of the disparity between liberal and illiberal strands of European secularism. [more]

Rudi Dutschke, Gábor Révai

Correspondence 1966-1971

"The entire population will next year have to put up with much 'sacrifice', in other words greater exploitation. 'Unfortunately', it is unlikely that a 'revolution' in the 'vulgar materialist' sense will be the result, but rather a protracted process of crisis". Rudi Dutschke to Gábor Révai, 1966. [more]

János Mátyás Kovács, Gábor Révai

Dutschke's Hungarian friend

Gábor Révai in interview

Rainer Bauböck

Who are the citizens of Europe?

Current citizenship laws in the European Union vary dramatically. The tension between freedom of movement and national legislation on citizenship has the potential to create serious conflicts, writes Rainer Bauböck. [more]

Jacek Kochanowicz

Right turn

Polish politics at the beginning of the twenty-first century

Alternatives to the anti-communism and national conservatism of Poland's two main rightwing parties are barely offered by a Centre-Left tarnished by corruption scandals. With new elections set for 21 October, it seems unlikely that Poland will alter its course rightwards. [more]

Csaba Gombár

Summer notes about reforms and "raison d'état"

Part 2

In liberal circles in Kádár-era Hungary, "reform" was used as a cover for democratic change; in post-Socialist states today, the term "democracy" is often seen as a revolutionary anachronism by younger generations. In the second instalment of this two-part essay, Csaba Gombár discusses reform's role in the transformation of the State. [more]

Csaba Gombár

Summer notes about reforms and "raison d'état"

Part I

The inflated use of the term "reform" in Hungary and other post-Socialist states calls for an enquiry into its kinship with "revolution". In the first instalment of this two-part essay, Csaba Gombár explains why, as an eastern European, he could only take US counterculture seriously in retrospect. [more]

Elemér Hankiss

Transition or transitions?

The transformation of eastern central Europe 1989-2007

"Incomplete regime change", "interrupted revolution", "geo-political paradigm shift"... Accounts of the transition in eastern central Europe have tended to emphasize particular features to the exclusion of others. Elemér Hankiss pieces together a mosaic of interpretations of transition. [more]
