Interested in writing for us?
Contributions to European Alternatives are activist in nature. They are well researched and well written, but they also attempt to draw propositive conclusions for positive transnational or European action. The crucial questions for us on every subject are: what should political institutions do about it? what should citizens do about it? what should we do about it?
If you have a proposal for an article, see the guidelines below and then email your proposal to email@example.com

Transnational Democracy: Looking at European institutions and democracy in Europe, relations between social movements and European or transnational institutions, the role of the European parliament and transnational political parties, etc. Our prime interest in this category is to promote the idea of a Europe constructed through the political engagement of its citizens, and not in spite of them.
Equality: This section is dedicated to exploring what potential exists in transnational institutions (European Union, European and International Court of Justice, etc.) in promoting fairer and more equal societies. We are particularly interested in looking at the status of labour rights and trade unions in Europe, questions of gender equality and women’s rights, and civil rights.
Migration: Developing a just approach to migration is one of the most pressing questions for contemporary Europe. We are interested in looking at European migration policies, the status of the migrant and the risk of xenophobic responses, and the relation between migration and transnational citizenship.
Cosmopolitics: This section looks at the relation between Europe and the rest of the world. We are interested in looking at the effects of European trade policy and European environmental policy on developing countries, the ‘foreign policy’ actions of the European Union, and more generally the overcome of nationalism and the development of global channels of collaborations, such as the experience of the World Social Forum.
