FEPS awards the title of Progressive Person of the Year to social democratic leaders who contributed to the most important progressive policy initiatives of the past year. Previous recipients include Frans Timmermans, Sanna Marin, and Roberto Gualtieri.

In its fifth edition, FEPS invites you to explore and reflect on the most significant developments of the previous year and imagines what the future has in store for 2024.

Within this latest volume, we prepare ourselves for a transformative year marked by pivotal elections. While casting a spotlight on the European Parliament elections, our attention extends to the broader political landscape within the EU, which is on the verge of transformation, shaping the Europe ahead.

This yearly edition counts on renowned authors’ contributions, including academics, politicians, and civil society representatives.

The Progressive Yearbook launch took place on January 24 at FEPS headquarters. Besides the award ceremony for Spanish VP Teresa Ribera, the event also included a panel with some of the authors of the Yearbook’s chapters.
