‘Speak up Europo’ is a blog about views, prejudices and convictions on themes around Europe expressed by Britons and people living in the UK. Even though my research focus lies on West Africa and Ghana in particular, I have always been interested in the European Union.

As a European I feel to have a legitimate say in issues evolving around Europe and that’s what my blog is all about. If you are interested to know more, follow me on twitter.
