    Infograph

    A series of infographics that expose the massive concentration of land in Europe. Over the last decade, the EU has lost a third of all its small farms, 3% of its farms now own 52% of farm land, and land inequality has become worse than wealth inequality.

    Policy briefing

    Europe’s young and aspiring farmers will face increasing barriers to entry as land is rapidly concentrated in relatively few big farms. Land is even more unevenly distributed than wealth. A steep decline in Europe’s small farms is underway with damaging consequences for food security, employment, and development.

    Wie wordt er eigenlijk beter van privatiseringen? Het gaat geregeld fout in Europa, waarbij — behalve betrokken adviseurs en bankiers — iedereen er berooid vanaf komt.

    Policy issue

    Privatisations of state-owned assets have become a central plank of EU/Troika agreements with debtor nations such as Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Portugal, but there has been little examination of their track record nor an examination of who really benefits. This report puts a spotlight on the legal and financial corporate giants making millions out of the new wave of privatisations across Europe.

    Policy issue

    Τα τελευταία χρόνια, η τρόικα (αποτελούμενη από την Ευρωπαϊκή Επιτροπή, την Ευρωπαϊκή Κεντρική Τράπεζα και το Διεθνές Νομισματικό Ταμείο) επιβάλλει προγράμματα ιδιωτικοποιήσεων σε χρεωμένες χώρες της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης, παρά τη σημαντική λαϊκή αντίθεση σε αυτά. Η παρούσα έκθεση εξετάζει τις συνέπειες αυτών των ιδιωτικοποιήσεων. Επικεντρώνεται στη διαδικασία, στους επιχειρηματικούς παίκτες που έχουν επωφεληθεί και εξετάζει κατά πόσον η πώληση κρατικών περιουσιακών στοιχείων εκπληρώνει τις υποσχέσεις που δόθηκαν για να τη δικαιολογήσουν.

  11. Varoufakis' Plan B en het Perspectief voor Europa

    08 February 2016 - Event

    Niemand zal gemist hebben dat in 2015 de Griekse burgers een poging hebben gedaan om zelf hun toekomst te bepalen. Dit leidde tot wat door de toen aftredende minister van Financiën Yanis Varoufakis betiteld werd als 'een regelrechte coup' door de Europese commissie en de Eurogroep onder leiding van 'onze' minister Dijsselbloem. Als reactie hebben Varoufakis en een keur aan andere linkse politieke leiders in Europa nu een manifest opgesteld voor een 'Plan B' voor Europa: de EU moet volgens hen drastisch democratiseren, of het zal uiteenvallen. Officieel heet het voorstel DiE·M·25: Democracy in Europe·Movement ·2025

  12. Varoufakis' Plan B and the Perspective For Europe

    08 February 2016 - Event

    In 2015, Greek citizens did a spectacular attempt to determine their own future but were despicably stopped by the unelected and democratically non-legitimized Eurogroup headed by the Dutch Minister of Finance, Jeroen Dijsselbloem. Critics like former Greek Minister of Finance Yanis Varoufakis called this 'a coup'. As a counteroffensive, Varoufakis - together with other European left-wing politicians - will launch a 'Plan B' on in 9 February in Berlin, seeking an alternative and more democratic future for European integration.

    Report

    Former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis argues that the nation-state is dead and democracy in the EU has been replaced by a toxic algorithmic depoliticisation that, if it is not confronted, will lead to depression, disintegration and possibly war. He calls for a launch of a pan-European movement to democratise Europe, to save it before it is too late.
