COMMENT

He was the safe uncle of the whistleblowers

Gavin H. Macfadyen (1940–2016): As an American-British documentary filmmaker, he produced a series of films over the course of six decades for the program World in Action: on racial oppression in the United States, child labor, the nuclear threat, war crimes, industrial pollution, and the exploitation of workers. He was also a regular feature in the Logan symposium on warning.

A long-awaited war

UKRAINE: It may seem as if the West, like Icarus in its youthful hubris, has flown too close to the sun. The principle of self-determination of sovereign states cannot be at the expense of the security of other states.

The war in Ukraine – what is the role of the United States?

USA / RUSSIA: It was a sad day for the world, but Russia's shocking military action should not stop us from looking at the role of the United States in the situation that has arisen.

Nyosmanism

TURKEY: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is perceived by many as an Ottoman sultan and behaves accordingly. He has become increasingly angry as the West has opposed him.

The continent we are part of

EUROPE: It is not this magazine's intention to dwell on Norway's affiliation with the EU. On the contrary. The exercise is inspired by the ongoing process in all EU countries with conferences and studies on the role and direction of EU co-operation. Is it possible to change the EU?

The moral notion of common goods

THE GLOCAL: Citizens' councils can revitalize Europe. Their success depends both on their ability to strengthen the EU's participatory political processes, and on greater responsiveness to citizens' local communities. Here we look at how the first "European Commons Assembly" provided an opportunity for information-based political reforms together – based on social and ecological sustainability.

EU economic recovery plan

NEXT GENERATION EU: After prolonged covid-19 restrictions, a revitalization of the economy is high on the political agenda. The EU's "comeback strategy" is an economic recovery plan with 750 billion euros in grants and loan repayments. Are we heading into a federal era? And what lasting ecological measures can be taken in a fast, goal-focused turnaround operation?

The warlike mindset

UKRAINE: What is it about our modern way of life that promotes such hostility and military-technological "solutions"?

The Storting could establish a citizens' council

CHRONICLE: What is the reason why the Norwegian people constantly choose oil over climate? And when it comes to the climate crisis, why do Storting politicians withhold significant information from the public?
