How refreshing! We had a vigorous exchange with the Youth Leaders about their vision and their expectations when it comes to pioneering the sphere of transnational politics, together with the Young European Socialists and FES Brussels.
We touched upon five main topics: transnational campaign and its tools; SpiztenKandidatInnen; transnational lists; the role of the manifesto and other documents ahead of the post-electoral negotiations; and post-electoral coordination and transparency of the process.
Fantastic kickstart to the ‘Ones to Watch’ programme in Bucharest! At the PSD headquarters we discussed perspectives on the past to consolidate the left coalition in CEE, and the ways to link local aspirations of people to regional and EU politics.
We met with State Counselors Ruxandra Ivan and Victoria Stoiciu, and the Head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Romania, Mihai Alexandru Ghigiu, engaging in thought-provoking discussions about the poly-crisis Europe is facing, and the
challenging rise of populism in the region.

In this new edition of the Progressive Post, the Special Coveragelooks at EU fiscal rules, particularly at thelong-awaited proposal to reform
the EU fiscal governance which was presented by the European Commissionin April. The plan aimed to address the shortcomings of the current framework, promote growth and sustainability and reduce high public debt ratios but it lacks ambition. It falls short of enabling the green and social transition, and lacks instruments to improve the democratic legitimacy and transparency of the decision-making process.
The Focus is dedicated to Turkey, a heavyweight of the European neighbourhood, an EU candidate country – but one with which the EU has a progressively deteriorating relationship. One Dossier looks at Latin America, whose nations are increasingly breaking free from the traditional alignment of their foreign policy with more powerful allies in the northern hemisphere. The other Dossier on Progressive cities in Europe offers a range of examples from European cities where a transformation towards sustainability is currently taking place concretely and on the ground, thanks to the vision and ambitions of progressive administrations.Read more.
