Following a conference last week in Prague that examined how the rest of the world views Europe (part of our ‘Reinventing Europe’ project), this week we began a mini-series of audio podcasts and blog posts with viewpoints from other global powers. The first of these is with Zhimin Chen, who explains how China’s ‘wishful thinking’ about the EU has been disappointed. You can hear the audio podcast here, and read a blog post here. As well as the view from China, the series will also examine how Europe is seen in Brazil, India, Turkey, Russia and Japan.
On our blog, Nicholas Walton proposes the idea of a personal EU tax statement.
Several European intellectuals and politicians - including ECFR council members - have signed an Italian-German appeal calling for a new constitutional convention.
Hans Kundnani blogs from an ECFR scorecard event in Warsaw.
Our office in Madrid published a podcast with Alain Délétroz, Vice-President of the International Crisis Group (in Spanish).
On our German language podcast there is an exclusive keynote by Jürgen Trittin, a prominent Green MP and former minister.
Next week our London office will host a debate on NATO, EU and Macedonia as well as an event on the role of religion in the Middle East. Mark Leonard will be in Berlin to discuss Germany's place in Europe. Check our events page for more info.
