Organized by FEPS with the support of R. Campalans Foundation in order to provide new answers on how to overcome the crisis of democracy, and while bringing meaning to terms such as “legitimacy”, “representation”, “social contract” ensure the favourable electoral trend for social democracy in Europe

The programme “Next Left: Building a new progressive majority” is composed of the 3 building blocks:

  • Organizing, mobilising and legitimising – contemporary challenges for representative democracy
  • Sense of politics in the aftermath of the global crisis
  • What do the new generations expect from social democracy? There is demand, but is there supply?

It will try to identify the answers on how preserve, strengthen and develop European democracy, as also naturally what is the role that social democracy should play in the 21st century to regain its strength as a credible political force.

The discussion is expected also to look at perspectives for an eventual broad progressive alliance on national, European and international level; as also answer the challenge how to bridge the gap between world of politics and young people.

The programme features one public session with participation of Alfred Gusenbauer, Chair of the Next Left Research Programme and Josep Borell, President of the European University Institute. Among the outstanding academics and experts, Andrew Harrop, Secretary General of Fabian Society will take the floor – ensuring through his participation the continuity between this seminar and a debate that FEPS together with Fabians plans to hold in London in June.
