Pierre Bourdieu, in Pour un mouvement social européen,

"L'histoire sociale enseigne qu'il n'y a pas de politique sociale sans un mouvement social capable de l'imposer ( et que ce n'est pas le marché, comme on tente de le faire croire aujourd'hui, mais le mouvement social qui a « civilisé » l'économie de marché, tout en contribuant grandement à son efficacité ). En conséquence, la question, pour tous ceux qui veulent réellement opposer une Europe sociale à une Europe des banques et de la monnaie, flanquée d'une Europe policière et pénitentiaire ( déjà très avancée ) et d'une Europe militaire ( conséquence probable de l'intervention au Kosovo ), est de savoir comment mobiliser les forces capables de parvenir à cette fin et à quelles instances demander ce travail de mobilisation.

EuroMemorandum 2013

The deepening crisis in the European Union: The need for a fundamental change


The European Union is facing an increasingly severe crisis. The EuroMemorandum 2013 critically analyses recent economic developments in Europe and emphasises the need for an alternative economic policy. Neo-liberal policies adopted by European and national authorities in response to the crisis have exacerbated unemployment and social hardship across much of Europe. The EuroMemorandum is intended as a contribution to developing initiatives by intellectual and social movements to promote greater coordination among movements at a European level and a different Europe that is based on the principles of democratic participation, social justice and environmental sustainability.
The EuroMemorandum 2013 can be downloaded here. More than 350 economists and social scientists from all over Europe and beyond have declared their support for the new EuroMemorandum (click here for the list of signatories).
Long versions of the EuroMemorandum 2013 are also available in
French: L'approfondissement de la crise dans l'Union européenne
German: Die Krise in der Europäischen Union verschärft sich
The summary of the EuroMemorandum 2013 is available in several European languages.
More languages are to follow.
The full text of the EuroMemorandum draws on discussions and papers presented at the 18th Workshop on Alternative Economic Policy in Europe, organised by the EuroMemo Group, from 28-30 September 2012 in Poznan, Poland.
