Quistioni. Magazine of the European Left

The Party of the European Left presents the first issue of its quarterly magazine – with transform! europe’s Walter Baier as part of the editorial board.

Quistioni, referring to the way in which Antonio Gramsci indicated the matters, the problems, aims at creating a space for discussion between those who want to build an alternative to this neo-liberal world. The magazine is published in three languages: English, French and Spanish.
