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”.

Roman oratory and the EU referendum campaigns

In addition to marking a politically decisive moment in British history, the campaigns in advance of the referendum on the UK’s membership in the EU were exciting objects of study for Classicists in terms of the political use of oratory.

Brief


The bulk of rights that come with EU citizenship are still related to the internal market. Are Union citizens therefore defined above all as consumers, workers or producers, rather than as politically empowered citizens? Is the increasing expansion of this “market citizenship” through ECJ rulings even undermining social solidarity? Or could these rights, which allow European citizens to move to and settle in another Member States, lead them to identify more closely with their fellow Europeans?

The following publication addresses these questions and others derrivng from the project EU Citizenship and the Market
