Newsletter 09 April 2022

Dear readers!

There is still war in Europe. Read our collection Voices for Peace.

The war also has repercussions on the French Presidential elections. This election’s outcome will have effects on the power relations of the whole European Union. Therefore, this newsletter provides the second installment of our French Presidential Election Campaign Diary: Look to the Left.

In addition, please read about our current research studies: on the national recovery and resilience plans of several EU Member States and the mapping of the political economy of states of the Euro-periphery.

An overview of the calls for submission and the (online) events on current issues organised by transform! europe and its partner organisations can be found in our calendar.

I wish you stimulating reading!
