European Alternatives runs a number of podcast series on the themes of democracy, culture and equality beyond the nation-state. Our different series explore artistic, technological, geopolitical, academic and societal questions from a transnational, transborder perspective. Peruse our in-house and collaborative podcast series below. 

Beyond the Nation State

How can we act beyond borders? What alternative realities can we build? How do we take care of people & planet, building a solidary society that works for everyone – at the intersection of class, gender, sexual orientation & geographic origin? How do we take care of non-human beings?

European Alternatives works to promote democracy, equality & culture beyond the nation-state. In this podcast series, we meet transnational activists, academics, cultural practitioners & civil society to imagine, demand & enact alternatives.

Workers Without Borders

Workers Without Borders brings together migrant workers from the Western Balkans that are currently working or have worked in different European countries in different sectors. We explore the challenges they face, their experiences, and their motivations to move between countries.

Ukraine and the World

The Ukraine and the World series is an initiative taken in collaboration with Foreign Policy in Focus – Institute for Policy Studies in the United States and our longstanding partner, Another Europe is Possible.

In the first podcast in our Ukraine and the World series, Luke Cooper talks to Masha Shynkarenko, a Research Associate with the Ukraine in European Dialogue programme at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna and an expert on the Russian colonisation of Crimea and the Crimean Tartar national movement.

They discuss the long history of Russian and Soviet imperialism in the Crimean peninsula, life under Russian occupation, and the need for nuance and complexity in discussion of what decolonisation of Crimea should look like in practice.

Resistance: Decolonising the Internet

How can we use arts and creative space to bring a decolonial approach to digital transformation? ARTSFORMATION, a project in which European Alternatives is a key partner, ran ‘RESISTANCE’, a residency in Lesvos followed by a public assembly held at the 2023 Transmediale festival in Berlin to explore this question.

In this podcast series we meet the residents, coordinators and researchers to discuss their experience building new imaginaries to challenge inequality and existing power structures in Europe’s digital transformation. We create a shared democratic space reframing the present narrative of survivability to one of sustainability and resilience.
