Yes, AI makes our lives easier, but at what cost? We demand a human-centric AI, to be enshrined in regulations and put into practice on the work floor.

The rapid advancement of AI technology has left even its foremost developers pondering the future and raised important questions: What lies beyond it, and how will it reshape our jobs? To get an answer, we joined forces with our Nordic partners on a Digital Programme focused on investigating AI in the workplace. We are now actively engaging with workers to understand their experiences with algorithmic management while analysing the diverse ways in which various industries implement automated management systems to oversee their workforce.

As workers, it’s imperative that we advocate for transparency in the algorithms that dictate our tasks and evaluate our performance.

Ahead of the UN’s SDG Summit, FEPS, together with Earth4All, unveiled groundbreaking research showing how policymakers can ensure the implementation of SDGs by 2050 and respond to the planetary emergency.

It will take a Giant Leap, notably five extraordinary turnarounds implemented simultaneously and immediately. Without these actions, we will condemn future generations to a dangerously destabilised planet. Read more.

More than one year and a half after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, when emotional fatigue and disengagement may start showing up, FEPS invites you to get stimulus for an informed debate about Ukraine’s future in Europe.
Join a roundtable with the editors and some of the authors of the book 📕β€˜Europe and the war in Ukraine. From Russian aggression to a new Eastern policy‘.
This November, snap elections are scheduled in the Netherlands. For these polls, the Dutch Social Democrats (PvdA) have decided to present a common list and platform with GroenLinks (GreenLeft).
This article, written with the co-authorship of Ties Huis in β€˜t Veld, the international secretary of the PvdA, provides an explanation for that political choice. Read more.
