Faced with the looming terrorist threat from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) attempts throughout Europe are being made to reclaim “our own identity.” While the whole conception of war between equal nation states is questioned in the era of international terrorism, the logic of national identity does seem to experience a comeback.

The spirit guiding those who initiated and negotiated the TTIP agreement involved a very strange conception of democracy: trade was elevated above the real values and aims of the EU and its member states. Trade interests predominate in policy related to agriculture, environment, consumer protection, energy and resources. They influence the provision of public services, the negotiation of contracts, and even the legislative process.

Processions, holy weeks, patron saint festivals, and the like, have been emptied of their meaning and survive only as spectacles and attractions for tourists. Many academics have denounced this prejudice, but it appears to be particularly resilient and continues to resurface under different forms.

In Europe consensus has broken down and conflicting visions of society have returned. Traditional centre-left and centre-right parties are forced today to join forces through grand-coalitions or republican pacts in order to ensure governability or keep insurgent parties at bay. A radicalism of discourse has returned, denouncing the status quo as a sham and a scandal. We should welcome this change.

Margaret Thatcher was a major political figure of the end of the Cold War era, who is still surrounded by much controversy today.

In the face of such a profusion of measures to support the financial system, and the broad power of central bankers, a question comes to mind: is it possible to think of a monetary intervention that supports a sustainable economy?

The Paris Climate Agreement signals unprecedented momentum to combat global warming. Indeed, many around the world now name climate change as a top threat. Nevertheless, various questions remain.

Europe has made the fight against climate change a central element of its international policies. Its vision, trajectory and results over the last 25 years have shown that it is able to face up to the challenge. While there have been important errors and contradictions (above all in applying the policy of buying and selling emission permits), the general trajectory demonstrates a positive balance.

Since sustainable development implies the joint maximisation of goals of biological, economic and social systems, interdisciplinary co-operation is essential. Sustainable development always involves conceptions of the future; and this in turn implies that any judgement necessarily implies normative assumptions and decisions.

Anthropogenic climate change affects the lives and wellbeing of hundreds millions of people now and will do so for the foreseeable future. The change is driven by the emission of greenhouse gases, most importantly CO2.
