SYRIZA has announced to cancel the Memorandum and replace it through a program for a Productive Reconstruction as early as it will be in power. The vicory of SYRIZA has inspired similar movements in other European countries. In Spain a new political formation emerged from the social movements. Together with the "Left Unity" the traditional party of the radical Left has attained more than 20 percent of the votes at the European elections. It took many of its inspirations from SYRIZA. This opens not only for Greece and Spain, but for the whole of Europe a new perspective. What conclusions do different social and political actors draw? What new possiblities for achange in Europe does this offer? These are two the main research questions of the network transform! europe which is the political foundation of the Party of the European Left.
