Public ownership in urgent political perspective

in the United States and much of Europe is once again shifting importantly, throwing up new challenges to which public ownership may in part be a solution. In a turbulent new era marked by wars, mass migrations, fiscal retrenchment, decaying social protection, terrorism, financial instability, rampant inequality, and looming ecological calamity, once again understanding the possibilities, pitfalls, and potential applications of public ownership will be critical to making sense of – and coming to grips with – a world in kaleidoscopic motion. Written off for so long

Europe and its Muslim minorities

most of all in extremist (and mainstream) discourses that inflame and stoke anti-Muslim attitudes and thus allow the Union to slide to the right.129 All the above evokes doomsday forecasts, particularly because Muslim and Arab population growth in the countries of origin which is presently described as uncontrolled might be checked, but only by 2050. With millions of youngsters only now entering their prime childbearing years, their progeny will inevitably resort to mass migration, most probably to Europe.

There are two problems with this. First climate change always affects the poor most. Their houses tend to be in places that flood, they are more likely to be affected by droughts and crop failures that lead to both rising prices and mass migration, to the detriment of the poor who are moving, and the poor in places they move to, and they tend to live nearer roads and industrial

in Making social democrats

Both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are relative newcomers to the superdiversity associated with the contemporary age of mass migration. 4 As a result, the discourse of social inclusion is relatively underdeveloped. In particular, there is a lack of understanding of the processes through which younger members of ethnic and religious minorities negotiate their positions in contemporary Irish society. For young migrants and members of ethnic minority communities, negotiation of inclusion in contemporary Ireland can be a challenging process. Young

years in Europe, and much longer in the USA, there has been the phenomenon of a mass migration of people from continental areas with high demographic rates and scarce, if any, development, desperately seeking the advantages of belonging to a ‘prized’ citizenship. This situation has led to a mass of economically and politically very weak people who are de facto excluded from the actual enjoyment of nearly every sort of right

Similarly, the increasing inequality between people in different countries is one source of war, disturbance and mass migration that will also have to be alleviated if the hopes of a peaceful and prosperous world stand any chance of being realised in the twenty-first century. Summary Equality is a word capable of several different meanings. One can speak of ‘primary

Hungary also played a prominent role in the drama of mass migration from Africa and the Middle East which has shaken Europe since 2015. On this issue, Hungary took a much more defiant stance against the EU, engaging in a drawn-out conflict with mostly Western EU members over refugee admission

Brighter European–Muslim–Jewish futures?

betterment of society as a whole, regardless of faith affiliation, took place after earthquakes hit in Haiti (2010) and Japan (2011) and during the famine in Somalia (2011).25 Muslim mass migration to Europe, 2015–16 As we approach the end of this study, we devote a few final words to evaluations of the immigration of hundreds of thousands of Muslims into Europe in 2015–16. Yigal Bin-Nun, whom we mentioned earlier (chapter 3), titled his article ‘The Arabs saved Europe’. Its opening words are no less surprising: ‘Arab immigration is the best thing that happened to Europe

The Berlusconi story and Donald Trump

long hours and with mortgages to pay off, and that feels threatened, culturally and economically, by mass migration. The parties have struggled to a much lesser degree among the better educated in salaried occupations, especially if they are in public employment and have trade union protection, all of which enables them to feel an affinity with the leftwing themes of cosmopolitanism, solidarity and market regulation. Against this background, both Berlusconi and Trump have been able to make their political fortunes by articulating the resentment felt by working

and power, and as a conduit for egalitarian politics. Although the political project of citizenship has been successfully ‘fixed’ at the level of the nation-state in recent centuries (Behnke 1997), this link is under threat on a number of fronts. The growth of transnational identities and mass migration, the vagaries of the global economy, or the collapse of the vision of the homogenous nation-state have led to a progressive unwrapping of the citizenship ‘package’ that characterised much of the twentieth century, based on state sovereignty, social protection and a
