FOR OLIVIER Colleague, Friend, Comrade OLIVIER FERRAND Colleague, Friend, Comrade Some of us first met Olivier when he was an advisor on European affairs to the French Prime Minister, others when he led A Gauche en Europe, and some of us not until he founded Terra Nova and began in earnest transforming progressive politics in France for the better. One simple truth permeates all the memoires in this collection of global tributes, wherever or whenever we first met Olivier, throughout his life he continued to have a profound impact on how we thought about progressive policies and how we sought to implement progressive politics to change the world for the better. He is truely missed.
