Dear all,

I am preparing a research project on left wing discourses on European  
integration. I will be comparing texts published by maoists in Norway  
(AKP), trotskyites in France (LCR) and Respect! in the UK, to see if  
their ideological divergences (particularly on the national question)  
can be traced in their discourses on the EU. Furthermore, I will be  
looking at the potential influence of the national context -  
Republican values in France, multi-culturalism in the UK and the late  
industrialization of Norway, etc..

As can be seen, the project is very much at an early stage, but I  
would very much like to make contact with people working along similar  
lines to exchange ideas.

Best regards,
Anje Müller Gjesdal
