E!Sharp The hub for original thinking in Europe

E!Sharp is an online magazine delivering thought provoking analysis on the affairs of the European Union and Europe’s place in the world. Through commentary, debate and humour, it demystifies the complexity of the EU. We aim to be accessible, lively and provocative. We know that you have many demands on your time and it is up to us to grab your attention.

If you want to contribute your thoughts and ideas in the areas we cover we hope you will put finger to keyboard, especially as we will not have the usual comment section at the end of articles.

We look forward to your feedback. You can write to the founder and editor, Paul Adamson, at: ▶︎
