Mobilizing law for solidarity

An interview with Shalini Randeria

Legal transnationalization takes place at different paces, setting human rights against trade and property protections, argues social anthropologist Shalini Randeria. The instrumentalization of solidarity by nascent ethno-nationalism must be resisted at the political not the legal level. [ more ]

Shalini Randeria, Anna Wójcik

Mobilizing law for solidarity

An interview with Shalini Randeria

Legal transnationalization takes place at different paces, setting human rights against trade and property protections, argues social anthropologist Shalini Randeria. The instrumentalization of solidarity by nascent ethno-nationalism must be resisted at the political not the legal level. [more]


Ira Katznelson, Agnieszka Rosner

Solidarity after Machiavelli

An interview with Ira Katznelson

Solidarity in liberal democracies is pluralistic, argues political scientist Ira Katznelson; it allows particularities of time and place while satisfying a widely held human interest. Democracy, too, takes a variety of forms and is best measured by historical standards. [more]


David Abraham, Claus Offe, Slawomir Sierakowski

Liberalism, populism and the challenges of post-transformation in eastern Europe and beyond

The migration crisis has triggered a shift in politics towards an ethic of responsibility; the question of the 'we' reappears in pre-political concepts like ethnicity and national culture. A panel discussion on the rise of rightwing populism in Europe and the US. [more]


Maciej Kuziemski, Jan Zielonka

How the European Union inhibits integration

A conversation with Jan Zielonka

Today's EU is riddled with tensions and its founding ideals are endangered as never before. What's now required, says Jan Zielonka, is a form of European integration able to meet the needs of societies put under pressure by current geopolitical tensions and the digital revolution. [more]


Ulrike Guérot

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. [more]


Mateusz Falkowski

Marching democracy

Throughout Europe, parliamentary politics has become increasingly intertwined with the politics of street protest, writes Mateusz Falkowski. And as recent events in Poland and Hungary show, a new dynamic of protest has emerged from the clash in central and eastern Europe between populist and liberal visions of democracy. [more]


Andrzej Stasiuk

East, or, the veins of this land

In this excerpt from Andrzej Stasiuk's latest book, one of Poland's leading writers and critics explores what drove him to realize a lifelong dream, and strike out ever further eastwards, away from his childhood home. As Stasiuk remarks, he always was attracted to places "that lie at the end of the line, spaces from which you can only ever return". [more]


Michal Koran

No time to lose hope

Central Europe at breaking point

There is a genuinely European future for central Europe, insists Michal Koran. But it won't come to fruition without a frank look at the deficiencies that accompanied the transformation of central European societies during the last two decades. [more]


Stefan Szwed

The curious case of Poland's political self-harm

EU concern for recent developments in Poland can do no harm, writes Stefan Szwed, but ultimately the fate of the country's democracy is for Poles themselves to sort out. And, luckily, crises often come with opportunities; Poland's PiS challenge is stirring a new political awakening. [more]


Matus Ritomsky

Slovakia after the assaults in Cologne

Reading through some Facebook posts

The Slovak writer and artist Matus Ritomsky provides some insight into the mood in Slovakia, as the debate about events in Cologne and other cities in Germany on New Year's Eve continues across Europe. [more]


Lev Manovich, Anna Wójcik

Atoms don't smile

A conversation with Lev Manovich

Not only is it time to modernize the humanities but also to humanize technology, says Lev Manovich, new media theorist and professor at The Graduate Center, City University of New York (CUNY). Manovich explains how to use big data to question the way we think about and study culture. [more]


Ivaylo Ditchev, Wojciech Przybylski

Cultures of mobility

From controlling to democratizing borders

Mass migration is linked not only to geopolitical and economic factors, but to cultural triggers too. Moreover, says Ivaylo Ditchev, borders themselves must be subject to public debate about what kind of borders we want where, rather than the arbitrary decisions of the powers that be. [more]


Jacques Rupnik

The Other Europe

Freedom of movement was one of the major achievements of the revolutions of 1989, argues Jacques Rupnik. A freedom that central and eastern European heads of state now refuse non-Europeans. How much longer can they expect to maintain their contrary stance? [more]


Anna Wójcik, Alison Wolf

Work-life balance, or success?

A conversation with the economist Alison Wolf

The extent to which working women are now creating a new society is unprecedented in human history, says Alison Wolf. And yet, the uncomfortable truth remains that everyone tends to take care only of his or her own social group. [more]


Bodó Balázs

Pirate libraries

A central and eastern European perspective

Many of today's pirate libraries were born to address political, economic and social issues specific to Soviet and post-Soviet times, observes Bodó Balázs. They are now at the centre of a global debate on access to knowledge. [more]


Wojciech Przybylski, Bartlomiej Sienkiewicz

Where is the power?

A conversation with Bartlomiej Sienkiewicz

In Europe all political thought is imperialist, says Bartlomiej Sienkiewicz. This means that politics as we know it today incorporates the experience of imperial politics from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century, when the foundations of what we call "the political" were forged. [more]


Oksana Forostyna


The works of Somalian-born activist and writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali show that the civilizational jump is incompatible with clan ethics, writes Oksana Forostyna of "Krytyka" (Ukraine). And given that Somalia is already a synonym for "failed state", time is of the essence in solving the Ukraine crisis. [more]


Luciano Floridi, Wojciech Przybylski

Toward a politics of information

A conversation with Luciano Floridi

Privacy and identity are two sides of the same coin, argues Luciano Floridi. And yet, paradoxically, western governments are now eroding privacy in the interests of their own self-preservation. However, collecting data first and asking questions later is not a policy, says Floridi; it's an affront to one of the foundations of liberal democracy. [more]


Janis Karklins, Wojciech Przybylski, Raul Rebane

Controlling the trolls

On Russia's information war

As the voices of genuine journalists risk being drowned out amid a plethora of agents of propaganda, what is the best media strategy for small states? Wojciech Przybylski leads a discussion on the latest information war. [Polish version added] [more]


Filip Mazurczak

Poland's controversial Oscar

Is "Ida" really anti-Polish and anti-Semitic?

Pawel Pawlikowski's film "Ida" may have won this year's Oscar for best foreign language film; however, it is far from universally well-received in Poland. While some fear it will resurrect anti-Polish stereotypes, others accuse it of anti-Semitism, writes Filip Mazurczak. [more]


Anna Wójcik

The Atlanticist consensus

Despite residual hostility to state surveillance, the Polish response to the NSA affair both at the political and public levels was strongly pro-American. Will campaigning be able to change mainstream indifference to privacy issues? Anna Wójcik of "Res Publica Nowa" reports. [more]


Anna Wójcik

Culture challengers

Innovation in central and eastern Europe

The region is bustling with brilliant young minds in the world of arts and ideas. Anna Wójcik reports on a new project that profiles the most innovative among them: the culture challengers who, as the intelligentsia once did, pick up and run with the key transformational ideas of our times. [more]


J.A. Tillmann

Monuments and other media

Recent controversy surrounding Budapest's proposed "Monument of Occupation" leads Hungarian philosopher J.A. Tillmann to reflect on perceptions of space and time in central Europe. And in how public space and national media are currently managed in Hungary. [more]


Ian Buruma

Europe: A noble idea



Oksana Forostyna

How to oust a dictator in 93 days

Bankers, hipsters and housewives: Revolution of the common people

In her firsthand account of events in Kyiv between 18 and 20 February, Oksana Forostyna conveys the intensity of the struggle that led to former president Viktor Yanukovych's exit. And how the Maidan became a space where protesters from all sorts of backgrounds worked and fought together. [more]


Timothy Snyder

Commemorative causality

Commemorative causality, the confusion between present resonance and past power, denies history its proper subject, writes Timothy Snyder. What is easiest to represent becomes what it is easiest to argue and, in lieu of serious explanations, only emotional reflexes remain. [German version added] [more]


Karl-Heinz Dellwo, Gabriele Rollnik, Marek Seckar

It was impossible to live in this world...

A conversation with Karl-Heinz Dellwo and Gabriele Rollnik

Karl-Heinz Dellwo and Gabriele Rollnik spent decades in prison for their involvement in killings and kidnappings. Marek Seckar of Host meets the former members of the Red Army Faction and Bewegung 2. Juni respectively, to talk to the couple about their pasts and present. [Polish version added] [more]


Wojciech Przybylski

Europe and the problem of force

In a timely opinion piece written prior to Russia's intervention in Ukraine, "Res Publica Nowa" editor-in-chief Wojciech Przybylski contends that should Europe rule out the use of force, it will clear the way for others who won't hesitate in using military might to achieve their political ends. [more]


Dominika Kasprowicz

Filling in the niche

The populist radical Right and the concept of solidarity

Solidarity, one of the European Union's driving concepts, has been abandoned in the wake of the eurocrisis, writes Dominika Kasprowicz: allowing the populist radical Right to bring to bear their own concept of solidarity, based on an anti-establishment stance and nativism. [more]


Iryna Vidanava

Living in the matrix

In Belarus, the digital dissident generation born in 2006 came of age during the political and economic crisis of 2011, writes Iryna Vidanava. However, bridging the gap between virtual and real-life activism remains one of the most serious challenges facing Belarus' democratic movement. [German version added] [more]


Szabolcs Pogonyi

After democratic transition

Will democracy in east-central Europe survive the economic crisis? Are democratic institutions and the middle classes strong enough to counter the authoritarian Left and Right? The real test for east-central European democracies is yet to come, writes Szabolcs Pogonyi. [Russian version added] [more]


Magdalena Malinska

Gender and culture

Res Publica Nowa, Poland

The benefits of greater dialogue between female and male authors are not limited to the treatment of gender as a topic per se, writes Magdalena Malinska. Which is why the Polish quarterly "Res Publica Nowa" is increasingly publishing articles co-authored by female and male authors. [more]


Wojciech Przybylski

Europe's new beginning

A European constitution that covers no more than a few sides of paper and clearly sets out the values that we share: concisely and for the people. This, writes "Res Publica Nowa" editor Wojciech Przybylski, is what is required if the EU's disintegration is to be averted. [more]


Ivan Krastev

The European dis-Union

Lessons from the Soviet collapse

Too big to fail? Too crisis-hardened to go under? The collapse of the Soviet Union has something to teach Europe's politicians if another leap from the unthinkable to the inevitable is to be avoided in the case of the EU, argues Ivan Krastev. [Polish version added] [more]


Béla Nóvé

The Orphans of '56

Hungarian child refugees and their stories

Of the 200,000 Hungarian refugees who fled Hungary following the Soviet invasion in 1956, close to 20,000 were "unaccompanied minors". Shortly after the fifty-sixth anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution, historian and former dissident Béla Nóvé traces their life stories. [Polish version added] [more]


Robert Cooper

The European Union and the Habsburg Monarchy

The threat that the EU faces today is as deadly as the one that confronted the Habsburg Monarchy a hundred years ago, writes British diplomat Robert Cooper, one of the intellectual architects of EU foreign policy. But getting it right does not need a miracle. [Polish version added] [more]


Václav Stetka

The rise of the tycoons

Economic crisis and changing media ownership in central Europe

As the regional presence of international players diminishes two decades after the privatization of media markets, local business elites looking to win influence are buying into the media sector. Václav Stetka takes stock of the consequences for free and independent journalism. [more]


Tomasz Zarycki

In search of a usable past

Who were the ancestors of the Polish middle class?

As the new Polish middle class seeks to establish its own identity and to break with the traditional ethos of the central European intelligentsia, it may draw on the experience of merchants once based in the Polish sector of the Russian empire. [Russian version added] [more]


Artur Celinski

"Professionalization, not cultural politics"

Res Publica Nowa, Poland

In Poland, policy for journals funding is all about "professionalization", writes "Res Publica Nowa" editor Artur Celinski. Declining subsidies together with a sluggish sales climate obliges the young journal to diversify into areas beyond strictly publishing. [more]


Christian Calliess, Henrik Enderlein, Joschka Fischer, Ulrike Guérot, Jürgen Habermas

Europe and the "new German question"

Political elites are not delivering Europe to its citizens, says Jürgen Habermas in a panel discussion on the renationalization of Europe. Is Germany's perceived withdrawal from the common European project at the heart of the current crisis? [more]


Marcin Król

Farmers in fairy-tale land

Poland and the European crisis

Lack of political decision-making and the demise of objectivism have landed Europe where it is today, argues Marcin Król. A lesson could be learned from Poland, whose tradition of economic liberalism and rural pragmatism has enabled the country to weather the crisis. [Hungarian version added] [more]


Ariadne Lewanska, Pierre Manent

Migration, patriotism and the European agendum

An interview with historian of ideas Pierre Manent

A European patriotism can be generated only through political acts that create a sense of solidarity, says historian Pierre Manent. If invocations of Europe are to be anything but vacuous, Europe must be decisive in defining its interests and demarcating its boundaries. [more]


Malgorzata Litwinowicz

Pride and disgust

Provincial life is typically seen in Polish literature as the antithesis of culture. Paradoxically, writes Malgorzata Litwinowicz, the Polish magic realist tradition derives precisely from the small town and the image of the shtetl as centre of the universe. [more]


Levente Polyák

Coherent fragmentation

Finding and remembering in Central Europe's confused cities

Its identity located somewhere between nostalgia and commerce, the dilapidated and the gentrified, the Central European city mixes languages, words and signs to form a style best described as radical eclecticism, writes Levente Polyák. [more]


Juraj Spitzer

Castle, cathedral and river: The soul of Bratislava

Bratislava, formerly Pressburg or Prespork, was historically a multi-national and multi-confessional city. When much of the old town was destroyed in the 1970s, the city's cultural heritage was lost with it, regrets dissident, poet and writer Juraj Spitzer. [more]


Jiri Travnicek

A provincial town grown too big, a metropolis that has never grown up

Brno and its literary image

Poets abound in Brno's literary history, but a prose monument to the Moravian capital has yet to be written. Two neglected short stories by native son Milan Kundera, set in post-war Czechoslovakia, fill the gap, writes Jirí Trávnícek. [more]


Karolina Ryvolová

The two cultures of the Czech Roma

The 300 000 Roma in the Czech Republic are the frontrunners of a Europe that is struggling to become multicultural, writes Karolina Ryvolová. Their culture exceeds the poverty in which they live and has a richness and variety that stems from a different set of historical roots. [more]


Dragan Klaic

Culture shapes the contemporary city

Using culture to reshape and renew our declining cities is a nice idea -- or is it? Dragan Klaic looks at the successes and failures of urban projects, assesses the value of "regeneration through culture" and challenges some conventional assumptions. [more]


Gesine Schwan

Knowledge is not a shovel

Universities and democratic society

The primary aim of education is to nurture the ability to reflect, to develop new ideas, and to implement these collectively. Cognitive "multilingualism" is the only way to prevent the specialization of knowledge narrowing our horizons to an extent that results in structural irresponsibility. [more]


Heribert Prantl

Are newspapers still relevant?

It is not the Internet that is responsible for the "crisis of the press", but subordination of journalism to the market, writes the political editor of the "Süddeutsche Zeitung". For the first time since 1945, German journalism risks becoming trivialized. [more]


Daniel Miller

On the post-city

As global megacities render the urban grid and its certainties obsolete, societies of discipline become societies of control. Daniel Miller cracks open the password protected "post-city". [more]


Jens-Martin Eriksen, Frederik Stjernfelt

Culturalism: Culture as political ideology

The multiculturalism debate has changed the political fronts. The Left defends minority cultures while the Right stands guard over national culture. Both are variants of a culturalist ideology, argue Jens-Martin Eriksen and Frederik Stjernfelt. [more]


Zinovy Zinik

History thieves

Thirty years after leaving Russia for Israel, an "unheimliche" experience in Berlin led Zinovy Zinik to investigate the chequered past of his Russian-born grandfather. An autobiographical exploration of "assumed identity" in twentieth-century Jewish experience. [more]


Przemyslaw Czaplinski

Deutschland: The image of Germans in Polish literature

The figure of the German in recent Polish literature reveals shifts in perspective from the experience of war to that of exile. Representations of the German other in Polish self-imagining. [more]


Marek Seckar

Anti-communism in a post-communist country

How progressive tendencies become regressive

Whether irrational or calculated, anti-communism in the Czech Republic distracts from more pressing problems. The Czech communist party might be an anachronism, but to ostracize it only prolongs its existence. [more]


Arne Ruth

Myths of neutrality

Ignoring the Holocaust in Sweden and Switzerland

In Sweden and Switzerland, complicity in the Holocaust was for a long time ignored. It was only as a result of foreign publicity that national myths of neutrality gave way to admissions of responsibility, writes Arne Ruth. [more]


Timothy Snyder

Holocaust: The ignored reality

Auschwitz and the Gulag are generally taken to be adequate or even final symbols of the evil of mass slaughter. But they are only the beginning of knowledge, a hint of the true reckoning with the past still to come, writes Timothy Snyder. [more]


Ralf Dahrendorf

After the crisis, back to a Protestant ethic?

"After the financial crisis, back to a Protestant ethic?" Rather not, says Ralf Dahrendorf, but still: the reduced circumstances in which developed countries are finding themselves call for a return to a responsible, parsimonious capitalism. [more]


Samuel Abrahám

Can the EU defend itself – against itself?

European stability is threatened less from outside than from within. Does the EU possess a strategy for dealing with the type of illiberal politician gaining ground in the Visegrád Four nations? [more]


Gábor Németh


"A person comes in, protests just like you, then shouts and rants, and then, when finally shown the piece of paper that was signed when they were on military service, they crumple." [more]


Eva Karadi

Still tending our own gardens

A response to Samuel Abraham

Corruption continues to play a decisive role in the relationship between the state and its citizens, writes Éva Karádi. [more]


Marek Seckar

The EU is not a sacred cow

A response to Samuel Abraham

The question is not how we can protect the EU from demagogic leaders, but how the EU can protect us from them, writes Marek Seckar. [more]


Frantisek Novosád

Slovakia: Ready for the future?

Slovak society has overcome its historical handicaps and became a fully-fledged EU member-state. Yet the style of resolving conflicts among Slovak political elites undermines conditions for future development. [more]


Wojciech Przybylski

Nations don't want to be treated like children

A response to Samuel Abrahám

National states have enough instruments of their own to ward off the threat of populism, writes Wojciech Przybylski. [more]


Wojciech Przybylski

The whereabouts of the imprisoned Polish memory

The notion of abandoning the East dominates the Polish memory of '89. Renewed debate among the born-free generation about the period of change would foster a more individual cultural identity. [more]


Carl Henrik Fredriksson

Does Central Europe still exist?

In an editorial for a special issue of "Res Publica Nowa", Carl Henrik Fredriksson argues that narrow-minded realpolitik in Central Europe makes cross-border publishing endeavours all the more important. In the context of such transnational practices, the question whether Central Europe still exists becomes less consequential. [more]


Zsolt Csalog

What are the Czechs like?

"I'm tellin' ya, if a Czechoslovak had been within reach, I'd've licked his ass clean!" A tough-talking Magyar remembers the stirrings of neighbourly affection in '89. [more]


Jaroslaw Kuisz

Between pigs and debt

It all began with the pleasing features of Gary Cooper... On two iconic Polish films that show the brutality, fear and loneliness that have accompanied the new political order: Wladislaw Pasikowski's "Pigs" (1992) and Krzysztof Krauze's "Debt" (1999). [more]


Samuel Abrahám

A trace of metaphysics?

On the allegations against Milan Kundera

Whatever the outcome of the allegations against Milan Kundera, writes Samuel Abrahám, the manner in which they have been made represents a failure of journalistic decency. [more]


Miroslav Balastík

Two stories

Kundera and the conclusion of the Velvet Revolution

The reaction to the Kundera allegations in the Czech Republic has largely been one of doubt rather than blame. Miroslav Balastík wonders whether the incident signifies the end of a phase of post-communism in the Czech Republic. [more]
