“The Changing International Context and its Ramifications for the EU: What Should be done from a Progressive Point of View?”
Panel Discussion and Workshop
The EuroMemorandum is the annual report the EuroMemo Group. It critically analyses recent economic developments in Europe and emphasises the strong need for an alternative economic policy that is based on the principles of democratic participation, social justice and environmental sustainability.
This year's EuroMemorandum emphasizes that the neoliberal global and European order has entered a polycrisis, understood as multiple shocks feeding each other with growing complexity. Taking its cue from the UNEP Emissions Gap Report that the time for incremental change has passed, and that only a root-and-branch economic transformation can save humanity from disaster, the 2023 EuroMemorandum analyses the polycrisis Europe faces, critiques EU policy, and offers radical policy-alternatives.
