Ideas for Europe #2

The second Centre Maurits Coppieters’ newsletter “Ideas for Europe” gives an overview of the latest activities of the Centre. It also contains some opinion pieces on the most relevant developments in Europe, namely the new balance of power in Eurpope after the European elections and the independence referendum in Scotland (as well as the non-official referendum-like event in Catalonia).

It features articles by Centre Maurits Coppieters President, Xabier Macias; Josep Huguet, President of the Fundació Josep Irla on the Scottish referendum; a piece by Jason Sorens, author of  Secessionism, on how pro-independence political majorities emerge; a reflection on the importance of studying and archiving history by Luc Boeva, director of NISE.

As customary, it includes a section highlighting best tweets from SNP figure Tasmina Ahmed, ERC leader Marta Rovira, and EFA director, Günther Dauwen, among others.

An interview with Daniel Turp, international law professor, on the recent developments in Catalonia and their implication for the EU closes the second issue of the newsletter.
