GES Blog: The Future of Europe: Growth and Enlargement

September 23, 2013

GES Blog: The Future of Europe: Growth and EnlargementThe European Union has managed to bring stability to a problematic area of the world, and it did that through the magic of economics. Now, as the old continent faces several financial crises and European solidarity is waning, it needs to undergo one more great transformation. In order for the EU to flourish, it needs to leave behind its transnational, confederal past and accept two very important principles as core values: federalism and the free market.

GES Blog: How to Empower Women through Religion

Blog: How to Empower Women through Religion

If religions could be defined by a gender, they would definitely be female. You can go to any Catholic, Protestant, or Espírita event in Brazil, and there you have it: many more women attending than men. What’s ironic about this fact is that religions in general have patriarchal characteristics and treat women as less worthy than men.
