Kira Gartzou, research assistant in European Studies, analyses the differences in views expressed by Syriza towards Europe, and in particular Germany, during its winning electoral campaign, and the views now portrayed in Syriza’s party newspaper since coming to power in January 2015. What implications may this have for the future of Greek negotiations with creditor institutions, and what is actually the mandate of the Greek government?

Young people in the UK today who are attracted to extremism are typically well educated. Given the weaknesses of this ideology in terms of its use of history, internal coherence of arguments and moral standards, its success with many educated young people requires explanation. The explanation, according to Dr. Farid, is multifaceted but education has a big role to play in curbing the trend.

Britain and Europe
The relationship between Britain and Europe is a
highly contested issue
that dominates political and academic debates. In 2013-14, as part of a pilot project at UCL which examined the relationship between
Kingdom and both the EU and the Council of Europe, we collated up
to date information on a range of important policy issues.
The series was convened by Prof Piet Eeckhout and Dr Virginia Mantouvalou (UCL Laws). It was run by UCL Laws in association with the UCL European Institute and the UCL Institute for Human Rights. The series received generous support from the UCL Grand Challenge of Intercultural Interaction.

Lord Sumption's attack on Strasbourg: More than Political Rhetoric?
We all agree that judges, in promoting the values of democracy and human rights, must not usurp the functions of parliament. But Lord Sumption’s attack on the Strasbourg Court was based on question-begging arguments that failed to address the substance of the issues involved.
Dr George Letsas
The project included a series of high-profile lectures, panel discussions and seminars that took
place during 2013-14.
