Why sovereignty must be pooled

If you’ve been following my writing on this blog, you probably know that I find the entire Brexit infuriating. Nonetheless, I’d like to repeat a few thoughts. The reasons is that Brexit is a paradigmatic example of what is wrong with nationalist populism: an out-stated obsession with – and insistence on – sovereignty.

What does it mean to be “conservative” today?

Germany’s Christian Democrats elected a new leader earlier this month. Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer prevailed narrowly over Friedrich Merz. The opinion pages of German and international newspapers interpreted her victory as an endorsement of Angela Merkel, her predecessor and federal Chancellor, and a repudiation of a “more conservative” course. I do not find that narrative convincing. It is not clear what “conservative” is supposed to mean.

Business media should finally see through Modi’s mask

Urjit Patel has resigned as governor of the Reserve Bank of India on Monday. He says he did so for personal reasons, but it is no secret that the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has lately been putting pressure on the central bank. I think Patel’s resignation should make international business media reconsider the distorted narrative they have been relying on for far too long.

Time to put words into practice

Climate change is making big headlines. World leaders, scientists and climate activists are currently convening at the UN climate summit in Katowice, Poland. It’s the 24th Conference of the Parties – thus called COP24 – since yearly meetings began in 1995 in the context of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) with the goal of establishing obligations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
