Rising to the challenge: The left’s ambitions in Britain and Europe

For over a decade the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and the Fabian Society have started the year with a new year conference examining critical political issues facing the British and European left.


The 2022 edition of the conference examined the shared challenges facing the UK and countries across Europe. We debated the left’s ambitions, as we seek to rebuild our societies and economies after the pandemic and prepare for green transition and digital transformation. Each of the conference’s sessions focused on a big challenge facing both the UK and other European countries – in all we have identified fourteen. The day also included a keynote speech from UK Labour leader Keir Starmer and a senior European politician.

This was a hybrid event – with several hundred delegates gathering at the Friends’ Meeting House, in central London plus digital access for additional delegates and speakers. The digital format allowed us to include a wider range of non-UK speakers than has been possible with previous in-person FEPS-Fabian events.
