The Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) is the only progressive think tank at the European level. As such, FEPS establishes an intellectual crossroad between social democracy and the European project, putting fresh thinking at the core of its action. As a platform for ideas and dialogue, FEPS works in close collaboration with social democratic organisations, national foundations, and think tanks across Europe to tackle the challenges that Europe faces today.
