Gender inequality could be killing Polish men

Gender inequality could be killing Polish men

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
A recent article in Gazeta Wyborcza looked at suicide rates in Poland -- the second highest in the European Union behind Lithuania and the 15th highest in the world -- and suggested gender equality could save the lives of thousands of men.

The global flavor of Romania's homegrown homophobia

The global flavor of Romania's homegrown homophobia

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Anti gay rights initiatives contribute to a polarisation of societies. This division comes in handy to Central and Eastern Europe's illiberals who are also trying to rally voters behind a conservative vision of society.

The incredibly high stakes of Warsaw's property rights scandal

The incredibly high stakes of Warsaw's property rights scandal

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Warsaw and several other Polish cities are embroiled in what's been called "restitution scandals", the hand over of state-owned properties to more, or less, legitimate private owners.

Retreat -- Princely advice for the EU

Retreat -- Princely advice for the EU

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Prince Michael of Liechtenstein’s family created a country that enjoys all the advantages of integrated Europe without any of the constraints of being part of the Union. So why is he advising everyone else to preserve the EU?

Political Spouses to the Guillotine 

Political Spouses to the Guillotine 

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
French MP François-Michel Lambert will quit if he’s forced to fire his wife. Now that France’s new law on the moralization of political life has come into effect, he's obliged to do just that.

Control+Z on Brexit will not reset the EU

Control+Z on Brexit will not reset the EU

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Of late, several prominent legal analysts and political commentators have been saying that the UK can still stop Brexit proceedings. This opinion was echoed by high-ranking EU officials, and it is rumored that legal advisers to Theresa May agree.

A team is only as strong as its players

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Perhaps, in our collective push for building and maintaining the dream of a united Europe, we have thrown the nation-state baby out with the post-war bathwater.

Macron the Magnificent v. Everyday Emmanuel

Macron the Magnificent v. Everyday Emmanuel

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
France has awoken besides everyday Emmanuel: a headstrong investment banker with a vision of his own for the country, and little interest in catering to the desires of the populace.

The irresistible appeal of the British right

The irresistible appeal of the British right

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Newspapers still write about elaborate hats worn by duchesses at social functions. They still consult Debrett’s guide to etiquette. And it's reasonable to assume that Jacob Rees-Mogg’s mystique is at least partly rooted in his blue-blooded elegance.

Trump called her weak, but viewed from Europe, Carmen Cruz appears to have cleverly fooled him

Trump called her weak, but viewed from Europe, Carmen Cruz appears to have cleverly fooled him

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Could it be, that when Carmen Cruz went on TV and said, "I cannot fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world cannot figure out the logistics for a small island," she knew EXACTLY what she was doing?

Crushing the Catalan Dream

Crushing the Catalan Dream

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Catalan voters and their children will undoubtedly have bitterer memories of today, even in decades from now.

The evidence is clear. Yet Professor Gilley still managed to get his unsavory dissertation published.

Julia Reda is the hero we need

Julia Reda is the hero we need

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Reda holds internet access to be as sacred as access to water and electricity. She also believes in a borderless, compassionate Europe. In short, she’s cool. But that’s not what makes her a hero.

Robbing the poor to give to the rich?

Robbing the poor to give to the rich?

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
This is a country-wide phenomenon which is quite worrying because the business and political elite will have disproportionate power which it can use against critical local voices, not to mention what a fertile ground this can be for corruption.

Ukraine soccer porno I MEAN promo raises eyebrows… and questions

Ukraine soccer porno I MEAN promo raises eyebrows… and questions

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Sometimes a sexual spin can be a feminist act of empowerment [...] at other times it’s a patriarchal tool underscoring women’s “true place” and function in a male world. Guess which case this one is?

If you have the skills, make artificial limbs, not sexy robots

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe

Angela Merkel has not made it easier for German women to work. Why is that?

Angela Merkel has not made it easier for German women to work. Why is that?

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
Angela Merkel is the exception that makes the rule in Germany. Women there make 21% less than men and hold under 4% of executive positions. Feminism is a bad word in the heartland of the EU and sociologists are openly calling for a women’s movement.

Romania headed for same-sex marriage vote

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
The leader of the governing centre-left Social Democratic Party Liviu Dragnea says he wants the process fast tracked so that the decision to change the constitution is made by Romanians and “not by somebody else”.

War: coming soon?

War: coming soon?

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe
When Russia flexes its military muscles, it nudges Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, and by extension, the European Union and NATO. And probably you, too.
