Abstract

What are the possibilities for building a counter-hegemonic radical left in Europe?

The results for radical left parties in the European Parliament elections of May 2019 highlighted issues about the left’s weak status as a political family, as well its heterogeneity; and these, in turn, pointed to some of the wider questions about radical left unity in Europe. What are its common denominators? And what are the prospects for cohesion and coordination? The aim of this article is to explore some of these questions, but it may be helpful to first define what is meant by radical left, and to give a brief account of the United European Left/Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL) group in the European Parliament.
