Ceci n’est pas un Cabri: L’Europe, l’Europe, l’Europe!

Share the post "Ceci n’est pas un Cabri: L’Europe, l’Europe, l’Europe!" Macron’s recalling of France’s ambassadors isn’t so much sound and fury as it is a shrewd move to shape the future of European security, and ensure France’s position at its helm. French President Emmanuel Macron’s recent decision to recall ambassadors to Australia and the United States marks one of the lowest points in a relationship long fraught with fraternal tensions. But the focus of Macron’s...

Commercialisation contracts: European support for low-carbon technology deployment

To cut the cost of decarbonisation significantly, the best solution would be to provide investors with a predictable carbon price that corresponds to the envisaged decarbonisation pathway. The authors wish to thank Natalia Fabra, Pedro Linares, Jörn Richstein and Oliver Sartor for helpful comments.  Many of the technologies that can help the European Union become a net-zero emissions economy by 2050 have been shown to work but are not yet commercially competitive with incumbent fossil-fuel...

Revue de Presse: May 30

Share the post "Revue de Presse: May 30" For the first time in its history, the European Union will arm foreign governments in the name of fighting terrorism, protecting civilians, and stabilizing fragile states, using a €5 billion “European Peace Facility.” Michael Peel discusses this newest development in the EU’s effort to extend its “hard power” in the Financial Times. Critics fear the money will entrench dictatorships and stoke conflict, undermining the EU’s...

Revue de Presse : 20 décembre

Share the post "Revue de Presse : 20 décembre" En France, encore une fois, l’on débat de la laïcité. Comme Patrick Weil nous rappelle, la laïcité c’est d’abord du droit, qui protège la liberté de conscience de chacun.e, et garantie la neutralité religieuse de l’État. Pourtant, dans une chronique du Monde, Thomas Piketty observe que sur le plan fiscal, cette neutralité juridique n’est pas toujours respecté. Non seulement les établissements qui ont été bâtis avant 1905 –...

What is Christian Democracy?

Share the post "What is Christian Democracy?" Represented in governments across Europe and at the vanguard of the founding of the European project, Christian Democracy was one of the most important postwar political ideologies. Yet surprisingly few studies exist on it. In What is Christian Democracy? Politics, Religion, and Ideology, Carlo Invernizzi Accetti makes a concise but insightful contribution that reminds us of the realities of the postwar European landscape,...

Revue de Presse: September 27

Share the post "Revue de Presse: September 27" In a review for the Point, Scott Spillman discusses Men on Horseback by the Princeton historian David Bell.

The EU Survives

Share the post "The EU Survives" European summits are odd affairs, in which the high and mighty are reduced to pulling all-nighters, like second-year students obliged to endure a college bull session–which by some accounts these meetings resemble. There are the conciliators and the prima donnas, all duly described by the EU press, which must wait outside closed doors through white nights in the hope of catching word of the irritation of Leader A, the witty repartee of...

Des formes, et de la politique

Share the post "Des formes, et de la politique" Justine Lacroix, Jean-Yves Pranchère et Anton Jäger ont eu l’amabilité de partager quelques-unes de leurs réflexions critiques à propos de mon livre Slow Démocratie, paru à l’automne 2019. Le principal nœud de la critique de Lacroix et Pranchère tient à la présentation que je fais de la nation comme une « forme politique » difficilement dépassable. Ils soulèvent des objections importantes, efficaces, parfois redoutables,...

Start Up Nation from the Left

Share the post "Start Up Nation from the Left" Ceci est le second texte dans notre échange sur Slow Démocratie, par David Djaïz (Editions Allary, 2019).  Few will remember the “Slow Science” movement. In 2011, a group of academics launched a call in The Atlantic for a decelerated research ethic. “We need time to think and we do need time to digest,” their manifesto claimed, including “time to misunderstand each other, especially when fostering lost dialogue between...
