Veronika Sušová-Salminen is our guest “On the Barricades” this weekend. She is a researcher from the Czech Republic, who produced a report on the peripheries of the European Union in a project supported by Transform! Europe in collaboration with the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation. The project’s name is catchy and self-explanatory: A Hundred Shades of the EU — Mapping the Political Economy of the Euro Peripheries.
The EU has been in crisis for a long time. Many of its defenders tend to equate any kind of criticism with right-wing ‘euro-skepticism.’ But it is precisely because there are elements in the EU project that we believe in that we embarked on the mission of pointing out the negative aspects of the economic model that is responsible for the ongoing EU crisis.
In this episode of “On the Barricades,” we discuss the dependency of the Eastern European states in terms of finances and how they find themselves in the impossible situation of not having enough tools to decide on their countries’ strategies.
