D’une autre Europe

In this work, the historian Jean-Yves Potel takes us on a journey to a central Europe which he has travelled at length, for instance having served as cultural adviser to the French Embassy in Warsaw and then as representative of the Shoah Memorial in Poland. It takes the form of a series of meetings, conversations, personal statements and portraits, reflecting the aspirations, frustrations and fears of this “other Europe” (our translation throughout). The backdrop [...]

Le financement des biens publics mondiaux

As always, this issue of the Revue d’économie financière offers readers a broad panorama of the debates, challenges and future prospects of a critical subject, this time the management of global public goods. It goes into such depth that this summary cannot hope to cover all the issues dealt with in it.

Charlotte Gardes-Landolfini (IMF) starts out by reminding us that the world is facing an unprecedented “polycrisis” that is “affecting [...]

Éducation et formation : les apports de l’Union européenne

In this trilogy, Renaud Denuit takes us on a journey into the very bowels of the European institutions and the meanderings of its procedures, in pursuit of a subject – education and training – that has had far less media attention than many others, related protests and strikes notwithstanding. A very important subject all the same, as it is the key to personal fulfilment and the basis of creativity and innovation. Because [...]

Le retour des temps barbares

An ill wind is blowing on the world” (our translation throughout). This is the opening sentence of this work by Thierry Wolton, in which he delves into the fall of communism and the weight of the Soviet legacy in the foundations of the worsening international relations situation we are currently living through.

The war in Ukraine is the “heritage of a buildup of lost opportunities over the last 40 years. From support for Gorbachev when he aspired to [...]

L’Europe superpuissance

In this publication, the Belgian political scientist Marc De Vos, founder of the Flemish think tank Itinera, analyses the way the European Union has been transformed by the succession of crises it has lived through.

Before developing his three main hypotheses, the author paints a highly optimistic picture of Europe for his readers: “a true colossus made up of 27 member states and 450 million souls, the European Union is the third-largest economic power and, [...]

L’accélération de l’histoire

What is playing out at the moment is [the] desire [of the Europeans] to act and to remain in history at a time when the global configuration is becoming fundamentally unfavourable to them”, writes the historian and director of the Institut Français Des Relations Internationales (Ifri), Thomas Gomart, at the start of this essay, setting the tone for a highly engaged and proactive work, which shines a light on the geostrategic movements at play in [...]

Les saccageurs de l’espace

Space continues to be a mystery, even to those who explore it. How, then, can we ever hope to understand what it is really about? Reading this book, which is passionate, clear and well documented, is a good start. Raphaël Chevrier, a doctor of physics, works in the space industry (MaiaSpace) and takes us on a fascinating journey through space and time with a passion that is contagious. With flashbacks retracing the major staging posts in the “conquest” of [...]

Qatargate

With this work, Le Soir journalists Louis Colart and Joël Matriche provide an extremely well-documented investigation into the Qatargate scandal, grouping together the acts of corruption and foreign interference involving Qatar and Morocco. The book reads like a detective novel, but with one major difference: there is nothing fictional about these intrigues and all the characters are real people. Moreover, this journalistic investigation is based on more than 5000 pages of [...]

La grande confrontation

With great realism, European Parliament member Raphaël Glucksmann demonstrates and argues that the war in Ukraine is not a distant isolated phenomenon, with no consequences or any real importance to our democracies, as many Europeans still believe is the case. Because, irrespective of the level of education and training, whether or not the person has been exposed to Russian propaganda, among the elite and the more ordinary people, there are a great many [...]

Changer de boussole

In this book, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Extreme Poverty, Olivier De Schutter, stresses the fact that poverty and extreme poverty are still very present, despite some very debatable declarations that they have fallen. In the view of the author, a lecturer at the Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium) and Sciences Po (France), tackling poverty cannot be taken separately from the fight against inequality. These issues require the growth goal to be [...]
