Social Europe

I've just discovered the website for Social Europe; the Journal of the European Left. There's lots of important and interesting stuff here.

This is how the describe their mission

1) 'Social Europe' is the first electronic quarterly journal addressing the left in the whole of Europe. At the same time, it aims to be a place for its basic principle discussions. Social Europe considers the Party of European Socialists (PES) and its member parties as its political homeland.

2) The primary aim of 'Social Europe' is to provide the opportunities for direct exchange of ideas between social democrats and socialists from all countries of the continent. In order to achieve this objective across language and cultural barriers, between Helsinki and Athens, Riga and Lisbon, we use the English language. However, we also aspire to publish all articles in their original language and support, as far as possible, the translation into further langugages. By doing so we want to contribute to a new form of European public realm - a public realm that grows and is shaped from the bottom up driven by citizens.

The Autumn 2006 issue features Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz' article on 'Social Justice and Global Trade'.

Back issues can be found here.
