What precisely is the Greek government’s mandate?

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?

Extremism disenchanted: what role can education play?

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.

Future public transport journey 2030

21 March 2013

Recent output from an EU research study - an animation of the future public transport journey 2030.


The Bartlett School of Planning launched an animated view of the potential 'seamless public transport journey in 2030', as part of the SYNAPTIC project (Synergy of New Advanced Public Transport Solutions Improving Connectivity in North-West Europe), funded by EU INTERREG IVB.

Focused on the needs of the traveller, SYNAPTIC seeks to improve the overall door-to-door journey so that journeys become coordinated, integrated and easy to use, with points of friction between different stages removed or reduced.

The project brings together 52 partner organisations from 8 countries in North West Europe.
