Political events in recent years have profoundly altered the landscape of the Left all over Europe. A prolonged economic crisis and the persistence of austerity policies have highlighted a real crisis in political thinking, leading to the break-up of traditional movements or parties; the rise of radical grassroots and citizens’ demands on the Left; and to the rise of right-wing populism, expressed notably by Brexit. Today, throughout Europe, the Left needs to reflect on its very purpose: emerging as it did from humanistic and international roots, how might it rethink the idea of the nation-state, and respond to people’s mistrust of policies that breed inequality and democratic deficits, at the national and European levels? And given the imperative of international responses to ecological challenges, how can the Left balance the protection of vulnerable communities within national borders whilst catalyzing transnational unity? What should be the new priorities for the 21st century Left, in a Europe whose construction has ground to a standstill, but whose union still generates hope?
Looking forward to seeing you in Westminster soon!
