A New Promise for Europe
Author: Olaf Cramme, Arian Meyer & Jo Ritzen
Date:09 September 2013
Europe is in a state of “Eurosion”. The EU is gradually turning into a union of vague and abstract notions that risk ignoring the real social and economic aspirations of it’s citizens. 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.
Democratic Self-Government in Europe
Author: Damian Chalmers
Date:15 May 2013
In September 2012, the Eurobarometer found for the first time that more European citizens considered the EU to be undemocratic than democratic. Responses up to now have focused on how to reform the EU Institutions. This paper takes a different approach. The European Union should only govern when it has democratic authority within a member state.

The future of economic governance in the EU

The changing space for EU politics
Author: Olaf Cramme
Date:11 October 2011
This paper re-visits the debate about the EU’s alleged, perceived or real “democratic deficit”. It does so by looking both at the changing space for EU politics and how political parties, both on the left and right, need to adapt in order to provide meaningful choices vis-à-vis European integration.
 The power of European integration
Author: Olaf Cramme
Date:12 September 2011
The left’s internal heterogeneity, persistent self-doubt, and, above all, the absence of a clear line of reasoning about the power and purpose of European integration have so far impeded a stronger social democratic imprint on the European project.
Challenging the politics of evasion
Author: Olaf Cramme, Patrick Diamond & Roger Liddle
Date:04 December 2009

In challenging and contesting the "politics of evasion" this new Policy Network paper offers a candid assessment of the centre-left's current predicament, setting out a path for a much needed period of ideological renewal.
