I just pulled out of a conference in Turkey in protest at the invasion of Northern Syria’s Kurdish region

Why Benoit Hamon’s primaries victory is good news for European progressives

A few years ago, in a televised chat with other French progressives, Benoît Hamon succinctly exposed the essence of our troubles in Europe: “[EU] governments may change,” he said, “but not the policies”. Since then, the Socialist former Education minister has been developing policy proposals to help steer both the EU’s second-largest economy and the European project away from its current destructive socioeconomic spiral. From his calls for universal income and proposals for humanitarian...
