On 1 June, US President Donald Trump announced the US would pull out of the Paris Agreement. Some commentators suggest that the damage this US administration can inflict to climate change mitigation is limited. Xavier Labandeira, Director of FSR Climate, has another view. FSR Climate has been analysing and reflecting on EU climate policies for almost ten years. Their insights ‘may offer some guidance for international climate policies within a Trumpian context,’ said Labandeira. Find out more in EUI Times.
In 2016 and 2017, the Eurosceptic right made itself heard. While left parties were accused of not grasping the needs and motivations of these disaffected voters, Koen Damhuis, PhD candidate in the SPS department, was already taking an in-depth look at that electorate in the Netherlands. In his 2017 book, Ways to Wilders, Damhuis plays a game of ‘join the dots’ with these Eurosceptic voters. By connecting eight individual stories, he reveals the bigger picture of who votes for Geert Wilders. Read more about Damhuis' research in EUI Times.

What does the backlash against fiscal austerity portend for social investment in the coming years? This volume surveys the emergence, diffusion, limits, merits, and politics of social investment in the 21st century welfare policy paradigm. One of the first studies of the welfare state in the new post-crisis context, the work engages leading scholars to revisit the normative foundations of social investment and the critiscisms leveled against it, in both theory and practice.

In this volume del Sarto analyses the tense political situation of Israel, outlining the creation of Israel's neo-revisionist consensus about security threats and regional order, which took hold of Israeli politics and society after 2000 and persists today. She explains the disappearance of dissent, and argues that Israel's feeling of being under siege has become entrenched. She concludes the volume with her prognosis concerning the possibilty of a two-state solution, and her outlook regarding Israel's isolation in the international sphere.

Granting rebates to a customer or refusing to supply a competitor are examples of ordinary commercial practices, which become 'abusive' under Article 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU when carried out by 'dominant' firms. This volume describes emerging trends in the enforcement and interpretation of this provision at both the EU and national levels. Besides analysing the case law of the EU Courts and EU Commission that determine what conduct falls in the 'abuse' box, a number of chapters examine the active contribution of national courts and competition authorities in the ongoing process of shaping the meaning of this legal provision.

This volume interrogates how the dynamic relationship between antisemitism and Islamophobia has evolved over time and space. The result is the uncovering of a previously unknown story in which European ideas about Jews and Muslims were indeed connected, but were also ripped apart. Religion, empire, nation-building, and war all played their part in the complex evolution of this relationship.
