Welcome to Place du Luxembourg*,

Jean Monnet once presciently said that “Europe will be forged in crises, and will be the sum of the solutions adopted for those crises”. PlaceduLuxembourg proposes to accompany the ongoing crises, keep a record of how politicians reacted and how the media covered these crises. Academic and professional insights on the EU, economics and politics are used to consider what other paths are available at each crossroad and what new crises the solutions adopted today will create tomorrow.  If Europe is a patchwork, this website wants to to keep track of how each patch was chosen, why it fits where it fits and what that tells us about the next rip in the fabric.

This website endeavours to collect as many sources as possible in order to record the relevant events, illustrate and support my arguments with data (financial, regional, political and military), theory and (eventually) statistical analysis tools. This has also led to collection a number of news sources, blogs, calendars, macroeconomic and market forecasts, specialised articles and books,  reports and other documents. Given the growing number of contributions posted, a collection of favourite posts has also been compiled.

Please feel free to explore the website and enjoy!


*The real Place du Luxembourg, is a square in the European Union quarter of Brussels where people meet at the end of the day to unwind, relax and have a chat under the shadow of the European Parliament.

    I have just figured out your web site by google search. And I find it extremely useful. Congratulations with your work. You must be enjoying while constructing this website otherwise it would be a burden. I can feel that joy in your writing. In Turkey we have a saying “May God ease your work”.
    Peace be with you.
