On Monday, May 4, I participated in an interview with Sarah Wolff for the 1st episode of the NEXTEUK Virtual Seminar Series at Queen Mary University in London. In the interview, on the subject of European integration and the future of EU-UK relations in times of COVID-19, I talked about populism, lessons from the Eurozone crisis, the responses of the EU and member-states, and finally what the EU can do. Enjoy!
On Tuesday, April 28, I gave a presentation entitled “Dilemmas for Democratic Legitimacy in the corona virus crisis, with lessons learned from the Eurozone crisis” as part of a panel on “Democratic Legitimacy and Public Debate in times of Pandemic” for the Zoom video-teleconference “Social Movements and Political Mobilisation in Times of Global Pandemic,” organized by the Copenhagen Center for Political Mobilization and Social Movement Studies (CoMMonS) at the University of Copenhagen. You can view all of the presentations on the Copenhagen Centre for Political Mobilisation and Social Movement Studies Facebook page. You can view my presentation below:

Watch this short video promoting the sixteenth edition of Social policy in the European Union: State of Play, in which I have a major chapter. The book has a triple ambition. First, it provides easily accessible information to a wide audience about recent developments in both EU and domestic social policymaking. Second, the volume provides a more analytical reading, embedding the key developments of the year 2014 in the most recent academic discourses. Third, the forward-looking perspective of the book aims to provide stakeholders and policymakers with specific tools that allow them to discern new opportunities to influence policymaking.
In this 2015 edition of Social policy in the European Union: state of play, the authors tackle the topics of the state of EU politics after the parliamentary elections, the socialisation of the European Semester, methods of political protest, the Juncker investment plan, the EU’s contradictory education investment, the EU’s contested influence on national healthcare reforms, and the neoliberal Trojan Horse of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
