  • As in past years, transform! europe supports the EuroMemo Group in producing the printed versions of EuroMemorandum.

    Against the background of an increasingly alarming influence of right-wing nationalist and populist forces, the EuroMemo Group wants to facilitate discussion on progressive ideas, concepts and policies, on how to reconstruct a political integration project in Europe that is responsive to the economic and social needs of all groups and people affected by the severe economic crisis of the last ten years, and in particular of workers, the unemployed, the precariat, migrants and other vulnerable groups, also in a gender perspective.

    The EuroMemorandum is edited by the group European Economists for an Alternative Economic Policy (EuroMemo Group) and is supported by more than 250 economists and social scientists from all over Europe.
