Tufts European Horizons: The European Green New Deal: The Solution for a Sustainable Future?

Tufts European Horizons will host a panel on the European Green New Deal. During her confirmation hearing by the European Parliament, incoming European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen promised to put in a place a “European Green New Deal” within her first 100 days in office. This promise helped her narrowly obtain confirmation with the support of Green and Socialist members of parliament. This plan seeks to implement many of the same ideas put forward by the Green New Deal in the US Congress.

ALLIES Weekly Discussion- The Kurdish Skirmish

Dispersed across Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran, the Kurds have been the largest stateless minority in the Middle East since the re-shaping of borders after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1923. In the past 80 years, in all parts of Kurdistan various attempts have been made to demand increased cultural and linguistic rights, autonomy and the creation of an independent Kurdish state. In 2014, Syrian Kurds established control over a large portion of Syria with the help of US troops which intervened in the war to help defeat ISIS.
