Does Eastern Europe have lessons for Brexit Britain?

What, if anything, can the experience of (research on) Eastern Europe say to us as we head towards Brexit? Lessons may lie above all in getting to grips with the tempo and nature of political change, its (un)predictability and likely channels.

Hollande's response to the Nice massacre will please only the far right

On Thursday night, for the third time since January 2015, President François Hollande was faced with a mass murder on French soil. An ashen-faced Hollande, almost looking like a broken man, appeared on television on Friday at 4am and declared: “This is undoubtedly a terrorist attack; the whole of France is under the threat of an Islamic terrorist attack”.

business

The role of the firm in European public policy has been a long-standing contentious issue for academics and policymakers. Moving beyond the Euro corporatists, this lecture will develop an analysis of individual business lobbying capacities that takes account of the distinct nature of EU public policy process. The talk will address the political behavioural logic of business, assess the allocation of political resources across the European institutions and along the policy cycle, and explore the effectiveness of such strategies.
