Gábor Halmai

The decline of liberal democracy in Europe's midst

Fidesz's constitutional counter-revolution has reversed the process of democratization begun in Hungary in 1989. Seeking reasons for Hungary's 'backsliding', Gábor Halmai argues that democratic culture is more crucial than formal legality to guaranteeing rule of law. Hungary challenges the EU's ability to prevent illiberal democracies emerging in its midst. [ more ]

Miljenko Jergovic

The merchants of Europe

The presidents and prime ministers of Balkan countries have convinced Europe that they represent the only guarantee that the Balkans will not descend back into war. It is through this kind of counterfeit politics that Croatia has arrived at the threshold of the European Union. [Hungarian version added] [more]

21.08.2014


Boris Vezjak

Slovenia's uprising

Protests at the end of 2012 in Slovenia caught the attention of international newspapers. Boris Vezjak asks what the goal of this "uprising" - suddenly a universally popular concept - is, and whether it might represent more than merely an isolated incident. [Hungarian version added] [more]

22.07.2014


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]

29.10.2013


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]

Denko Maleski

Law, politics and history in international relations

Macedonia and Greece

At the moment of the Macedonian nation's greatest victory, independence, "the name issue became the new symbol of our defeat", regrets Denko Maleski. Predictably enough, those in Macedonia to benefit were the nationalist Right, thus confirming Greek fears. [more]

16.07.2012


Valentina Mironska-Hristovska

Between politics and truth

Nowhere is the politics of history more vexed than in the conflict over the name "Macedonia". Valentina Mironska-Hristovska presents the Macedonian position, arguing that the Greek claim to the historical-cultural legacy of Macedonia is, at heart, paradoxical. [more]

Anders Ramsay

Marx? Which Marx?

Marx's naturalistic understanding of value as being inherent in a commodity has led many interpreters to see money and credit as surface phenomena. In doing so, they overlook the contemporary role played by credit in the reproduction of capital, writes Anders Ramsay. [more]

Claus Leggewie

Battlefield Europe

Transnational commemoration and European identity

A pan-European memory cannot be reduced to the Holocaust and the Gulag alone, no matter how central these are, and must be able to compare memories without offsetting each against the other. On the "concentric circles" of European memory. [more]

Lidija Kapushevska-Drakulevska

Meeting halfway

Recent Macedonian literature between tradition and innovation

Female Macedonian novelists are reversing the male dominance of the genre, writes Lidija Kapushevska-Drakulevska. In poetry, meanwhile, "a completely individualized form of expression" has developed, and it is here that the biggest innovations are being made. [more]

Denko Maleski

The borders of our minds

The Macedonian safety dilemma

Macedonian politics is dominated by conflicting interest groups, each fearful of their annihilation by the other, writes Denko Maleski. [more]

13.07.2007


Pajo Avirovic

The wit virus

"We should put a wit virus into the established system of ethnic, religious, and linguistic exclusivism. This virus should emphasize the seemingly irrelevant, as opposed to things that seem great, essential, historic." Macedonian author Pajo Avirovic on how a joke goes a long way in a society riven by ethnic tension. [more]

13.07.2007


Ismail Kadare

Don Quixote in the Balkans

Ismail Kadare on why Don Quixote belongs to Balkan folklore, how Cervantes first came to be translated into Albanian, and why today's politicians should be banned from using the knight errant's name as a term of abuse. [more]
