BlogEuropa.eu is a public space for debate on Europe and beyond, created in 2006 by José M. de Areilza. The blog tries to foster citizens’ involvement in the Union, innovative ideas and strong and enlightened debate about European interests, choices and values.The team of editors support European integration and its ideals from a variety of perspectives.
The blog is inspired in a reflection of Hanna Arendt:
“The polis, properly speaking, is not the city-state in its physical location; it is the organization of the people as it arises out of acting and speaking together, and its true space lies between people living together for this purpose, no matter where they happen to be.
`Wherever you go, you will be a polis´: this famous words became not merely the watchword of Greek colonization, they expressed the conviction that action and speech create a space between the participants which can find its proper location almost any time and anywhere. It is the space of appearance in the widest sense of the word, namely the space where I appear to others as others appear to me, where men exist not merely like other living or inanimate things but make their appearance explicitly.”
Hanna Arendt, The Human Condition, 1958
