Jonas Campion

In a state of emergency

The case of France

The state of emergency declared after the November 2015 Paris attacks continues to apply today. Jonas Campion compares the current situation with previous instances in which the executive measure was enforced, from the "Algerian events" between 1955 and 1961, to civil unrest in 2005. [more]

Pierre Coopman

Campaigning in the wake of catastrophe

The turnout to receive refugees in Parc Maximilien in Brussels last year far exceeded that at demonstrations in the Belgian capital calling for an end to violence in Syria during the preceding five years of civil war. Pierre Coopman traces the sometimes paradoxical contours of solidarity. [more]

Albert Bastenier

The spirit of terror

In this brief history of terrorism, Belgian sociologist Albert Bastenier observes that terrorism has manifested itself at some point in most regions, cultures and religions. What gives terrorism its new character today though is the rapid diffusion of news and images. [more]

Pham Van Quang

Stories of self-discovery

Francophone Vietnamese literature

Pham Van Quang examines recent developments in Francophone Vietnamese literature. Life in exile and the resulting quest for identity tends to inform the semi-autobiographical novels published of late, which throw new light on issues of individual and collective memory. [more]

Luc Van Campenhoudt

Why have the Greens still not made it?

What exactly is depriving the Greens of political success? Luc Van Campenhoudt wonders if their moral condemnation of luxury lifestyles has something to do with it; after all, the wealthier middle classes are accustomed to striking compromises when dealing with other political players. [more]

George Blecher

Not bad for a lame duck

Much as the media like to call Barack Obama a "lame duck President", he's begun to look pretty agile of late. So says George Blecher. A portrait of Obama, the most consistent US president in decades, dispatched from inside the land of the free. [French version added] [more]

Thomas Lemaigre

Liberalism under stress

The Belgian government has held back from demanding greater surveillance powers after the terrorist attacks; how long liberal protections withstand rightwing pressure remains to be seen, writes Thomas Lemaigre of "La Revue nouvelle". [more]

Vincent de Coorebyter

Parting ways

The crisis of the democratic system

The path of never-ending compromise has led traditional political parties into a cul-de-sac, writes political scientist Vincent de Coorebyter. They shall have to completely break with their old ways if the alienation that thrives in the ruins of representative democracy is to be overcome. [more]

Roberto Belloni

The growing euroscepticism of the western Balkans

The more advanced the process of European integration, the more pronounced the euroscepticism in the Balkan states, writes Roberto Belloni. However, should Europe fail to stand by the region, it would destroy the European Union's credibility. [more]

Andriy Portnov

Where now?

Locating Ukraine after Euromaidan

Disentangling the clash of interests surrounding Euromaidan, Andriy Portnov observes that the movement's European dream simply doesn't coincide with the visions that Brussels and Berlin have for the region. And that relations between Russia and Ukraine are no less strained. [more]

Renaud Maes

Plagiarism and university students

Towards a more nuanced approach

When the achievement of a qualification is the sole aim, where students are considered as consumers, and where academics lack time to provide close supervision, it is scarcely surprising that pragmatism should prevail, writes Renaud Maes. [more]

Albert Bastenier

Democracy and populism in the political arena

Democracy has no natural and eternal definition but is embedded in an historical process, argues Albert Bastenier. It is in the frame of the incomplete that we must understand the role populism plays in the political arena of contemporary European societies. [more]

Benoît Lévesque

Crises and social innovation

Surveying the cyclical relationship between crisis and innovation, Belgian sociologist Benoît Lévesque says the current situation is unique in precluding a return to old ways. Transformation must come through community based experiments and economic devolution. [more]

Tobias Hübinette, Catrin Lundström

White melancholia

Mourning the loss of "Good old Sweden"

Sweden's post-war image as frontrunner of egalitarianism and antiracism contains more than a trace of national and racial chauvinism. As myths of the better Sweden fade, both Right and Left are consumed by "white melancholy". [more]

Paul Th. Grosjean

A thousand people for democracy

The G1000 was a citizens' summit held in Brussels on 11 November 2011, based on the idea that Belgium's recent political crisis was not only a national crisis, but a wider crisis for democracy. A participant describes the proceedings and evaluates the results. [more]
