The Next Left Working Group gathers 16 outstanding academics, who research the matters related to political parties and partisanship within the EU dimension. Following a successful pilot phase in 2012, the WG will meet for the second time this year in order to advance research undertaken by the respective members within this year’s leading theme “Politicising Europe, europeanising social democracy”.

The session will offer an opportunity for a peer review of the papers, which have been developed in the course of last months and in their scope touch upon:

  • potential openings for social democratic agenda in the context of the upcoming EU elections
  • questions of euroscepticism and eurorejectionism
  • strategic orientations regarding eventual coalition partners and competitors

Within the final session, the Working Group will also engage in a conversation with Dr. Alfred Gusenbauer, Chair of the Next Left Research Programme, as also will have a chance for exchange of thoughts with Ms. Gabrielle Cseh, PES Policy Advisor.

For more information, please contact Dr. A. Skrzypek, FEPS Senior Research Fellow or Ms. I. Graus, FEPS Events Organiser
