Perfect for television

"New Eastern Europe" has the lowdown on Leviathan's elimination of Boris Nemtsov; "openDemocracy" says talk of tragedy in the Mediterranean will end when taking responsibility begins; in "Blätter", Naomi Klein urges opponents of austerity to join forces with campaigners for climate justice; "Free Speech Debate" questions France's track record as a beacon of free speech; "Mittelweg 36" tries to keep the emotions in check, as the war on terror rages on; "Fronesis" sees a need for a movement of sameness rather than of difference; "La Revue nouvelle" contemplates the limits to autonomy; "Magyar Lettre" takes a trip through the Slovakian literary landscape; "Host" examines the Czech connection in the life and works of Philip Roth; and "Letras Libres" presents a late portrait of Tomas Tranströmer.
