Turning Points: The Left after the EU Election

The 2024 European Election (June 6-9) marked a crucial joint in the continent’s political landscape. As Europe navigates economic recovery and global challenges, we gathered in our Manhattan office on June 14 to explore the results and understand the complexities and possibilities shaping the future of the European Union and the European Left.

Our speakers, Daphne Weber, Member of the Federal Board of Die Linke (Germany), and Natassa Romanou, EU Parliament candidate from the New Left party (Greece), shared their insights about the performance of left-wing parties and the worrisome rise of the far right. The event was hosted by our director, Stefan Liebich.
