Dear Writers, Readers, Supporters, and Followers

When we started “Quo Vademus”, it was always about creating a community of like-minded people and the idea that, despite us being perceived as “too young” and “inexperienced” we together can create change.

It was also about transparency, building something together, networking, starting a discussion, and creating a room for conversations. But most importantly it was about the personal connection.

Over the last weeks, many of you were asking about meeting the team and other members of the network and we were looking for the right tool. We think by creating a community-owned Discord server, we will be one step closer to achieving that.

On Discord, we have text-channels as well as voice channels. Public as well as private ones. Rooms where we can meet other people with shared interests and discuss topics, news, ideas, thoughts, as well as “Quo Vademus” itself.

Especially during this Pandemic, some of us are forced to spend more time at home. We therefore want to give you a place for valuable social interactions and a chance to network.

So just drop by on our Discord channel! (https://discord.gg/qrx6nVxtCh)

Stay safe and see you later!

The questionable status of the Polish Opposition

Amidst a raging pandemic, the Polish government published the decision by the Constitutional Tribunal in October 2020, which makes abortions in the instance of severe and irreversible impairment of the fetus illegal. Unsurprisingly people are on the streets, protest, rebel or decide to organise bottom-up dispersed forms of activism. However, the existence of these movements in themselves is not enough to create a strong counter system for the ruling, right-wing party PiS and thus the question: where is the opposition?

EU-Funding – A Key Area of Corruption in Hungary

While it is widely known corruption is a widespread problem in Hungary, the role of EU funds and the extent to which these funds are affected by corrupt practices often goes unnoticed. EU money from cohesion funds is frequently misappropriated, and the money, as well as public contracts, are often given to government allies as well as friends and family of prime minister Orbán. The EU needs to find new solutions to exert control over the projects financed by EU money and ensure that the money is not misappropriated and further enriches corrupt government officials and cronies.

COVID19 – Curtains fall on Italian Youth employment dream

Long before this pandemic, young Italians were considered the poorest and the most unemployed in Italy. In 2017, Business Insider Italia remarked the existence of a significant generational income gap between younger and older generations, as well as different equity in terms of real estate properties and wealth. If we then consider how the pandemic is already affecting the global economy, the Italian national forecast can only get worse. Since March 2020, the Italian political debate has focused on preserving existing jobs rather than find future-oriented solutions. In the end, what shall a young Italian do?

The UK’s tilt to the Indo-Pacific: what concrete implications for Australia?

50 years after the then UK defence secretary Denis Healey announced Britain’s retreat from the Indo-Pacific in 1968, the UK is once again drawn into the geoeconomic and geostrategic challenges of the maritime region. This desire to extend Britain's strategic horizon was accelerated by the vote to leave the EU in 2016. In particular, the decision to leave the European single market has forced Downing Street to strengthen its trading relationships with partners beyond the EU - a considerable number of which reside in the Indo-Pacific region.
