Few attempts have been made to spell out an idea of progress that can capture the imagination of Europe’s citizens, many of which no longer regard the Union as a vehicle for positive change. Populism and euroscepticism have never had it so easy.

Progressive Politics after the Crash
Author: Olaf Cramme, Patrick Diamond and Michael McTernan

Those who hoped the collapse of financial markets would usher in the end of neoliberalism and rehabilitate support for traditional social democratic policy programmes have been disappointed.

After the Third Way
Author: Olaf Cramme & Patrick Diamond (eds)
