Europaeum Universities Blog Lists

As the Europaeum continues to develop its own place in the Blogosphere, we have collected a number of different blog sites and Twitter feeds from scholars across our partner network. These blogs are an excellent way to keep up-to-date on the most current thoughts of top European scholars. Click here to download a full list of these sites, or click on the links below.

The Europaeum and OpenDemocracy

Now, after a bit of research, we have discovered a long history of Europaeum scholars contributing to openDemocracy, going as far back as 2003 ! Listed below is a short collection of these contributions.

Centre for European Reform


The Centre for European Reform has issued a new Policy Brief on The new Commission's economic philosophy. The report states that the broad orientation of the Commission's economic policy is unlikely to change. It will continue to defend the single market, free trade and a tough competition policy. However, the economic policies of the Commission and the EU as a whole will inevitably reflect the economic backdrop of slow growth and high unemployment.
