The screening took place at Café Tachles an edgy culture café in the second district of Vienna. The basement cinema, which doubles up as a jazz-club, created an intimate space to watch the movie.

Nobody knows whether the UK will stay in the European Union or what would happen to Britain or indeed to Europe were the UK to leave. We sat in the austere surroundings of Committee Room 12 in the Palace of Westminster, as the Thames flowed quietly past and the MPs in the neighbouring rooms went […]

Our Europe is in danger. Nationalism, xenophobia and insularity threaten its fundamental values. Our Europe, the most impressive political construction of modern times, cannot stand by as national governments jeopardise its democratic, economic, social, cultural and environmental model. They have shown inertia and distrust when faced first with economic crisis, then with refugees and most […]

The EU might be dysfunctional but it is still Britain’s home. Help us fix it from the inside. Dear British friends, My kids and husband are British, I teach and pay taxes in this country, talk to my village neighbours everyday and love English country lanes, Scottish castles, Welsh road-signs, Cornwall’s gardens and all the […]

When Russia Today started broadcasting its daily news programme in Serbian on 1 January 2015, the official message was that it was merely to add ‘Russia’s view on a particular situation’ in a media context where ‘Western media have been operating for over 20 years’. The establishment of what became RT/Sputnik Srbija, with a relatively […]

The way we measure unemployment can lead to misleading conclusions. “Our economic plan has helped deliver sharp falls in long-term youth unemployment”, wrote the Conservatives in their 2015 manifesto. But how we measure unemployment, and what we interpret those measures to mean, can be misleading. Percentages illustrating a proportion of the labour force are often […]

As a UK Referendum on EU membership gets closer, much is being made by those urging exit of the idea of national sovereignty. Indeed for some Brexiters this is the defining issue. What they mean by sovereignty seems to be that a country can make its own laws and act independently of all other countries. […]

An ongoing row with the Commission will be debilitating for the government which will have to spend valuable time and political capital defending its reputation in the European arena. However, the ruling party has shown that it can fight its corner and the Commission’s intervention could prove a double-edged sword for Poland’s opposition. LAW AND […]

Eurosceptics often claim that they love Europe, but hate the European Union. They assert that Britain can still be part of Europe without having to be part of the European Union. That, of course, is true to an extent, but it rather misses the point and purpose of the EU. The European Economic Community – […]

When you put that statistic – 23,000 – beside the fact that 120,000 plus may not be able to express their vote in UK if they are enjoying the Glastonbury festival it puts our influence in perspective, but only in numerical terms. Yet I know from our experience when the Blair and Aznar governments tried […]

Last year I was fortunate enough to secure funding from the EU for a young people’s project, which I then went on to manage in three central London boroughs. The money came through the Erasmus + programme, which is normally associated to university grants allowing students to experience a year in a different EU country. […]

Re-bordering is emerging in Scandinavia in one of the most symbolically borderless regions in Europe. While the re-imposition of border controls between Sweden and Denmark causes great inconvenience to cross-border commuters, more importantly, the situation reflects a very serious problem for the EU, and a grave crisis for those hundreds of thousands of displaced persons […]
