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.
