‘Recovering Europe: Mind the Social Gaps’ is the theme of the 10th edition ofCall to Europe, the annual flagship conference organised by the Foundation for European Progressives Studies (FEPS) and its partners. The event will take place betweenTuesdayMay 25 and Thursday May 27.
With this conference,FEPS and the progressive political familyintend to contribute to the debate around the action needed for an inclusive and sustainable recovery, one that overcomes the worrisome trend of growing inequalities.
This year, the annual FEPS Call to Europe flagship conference celebrates its 10th Anniversary. Over the past ten years, Call to Europe has evolved into a key progressive platform where experts, civil society representatives and policy-makers jointly contribute to a melting pot of progressive ideas.
FEPS Secretary-General László Andor: “We knew that inequality was a growing problem in Europe in the pre-pandemic years, but now it is an even greater task to turn towards an economic and social model that offers not only opportunities but also guarantees for closing the social gaps.Without progressive strategies we may end up with more divided societies, which would in turn endanger democratic politics.With a stronger social dimension, the EU must become the driver of progressive transformation.”
