Latest addition : 22 September 2009.
The FED Watch is a forum for writing short articles or simply making postings in reaction to what is happening in the world today. Its aim is to monitor anti-federalist and egoistic state behaviour just like the Human Rights Watch is monitoring violations of human rights. Furthermore it explores what kind of issues in European and world politics are relevant to federalism and also in what is our critique of these issues. Have your say in the FED watch today!
