Portraits of Pioneers

In this area we will put together an e-book providing insights into the thinking and practices of groups and organizations that are already breaking new ground in politics in Europe. The book will also look at the very few political parties that are hearing the demand for new relationships with members and citizens, to allow a more engaged and energised politics.

As part of this work, we are consecutively posting interviews with such pioneers here, both in written and audio/audiovisual form, in English and German languages.

Some of these interviews will also be made available as video or audio broadcasts, mostly on our Youtube channel “Pioneers of Politics”. The first videos on the channel have been conducted in German, with pioneers from German speaking countries. English language interviews will follow shortly.

Here is a preview of a LiFT interview by Indra Adnan (IFIS and A/UK) with Simon Anholt, the creator of the “Good Country Index” (in English).
