We continue mainstreaming climate through multiple policy fields. Grab your best coffee mug and join us for our series of policy breakfasts: it’s time to break down the silos! After discussing the links between climate and health, we’ll unveil the unequal gendered impacts of climate policies.

While on the topic of climate, we analysed TJTPs in 🇦🇹🇨🇾🇨🇿🇪🇪🇩🇪🇬🇷🇸🇪. We also discussed the future of disarmament and analysed the EU and its member states’ approach to migration and asylum, check it out!

What are the economic, environmental and social aspects of the Territorial Just Transition Plans (TJTPs)? In collaboration with Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), we analysed the TJTPs of seven countries (Austria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Greece, and Sweden) to map the just transition envisioned in these regions. What kind of justice shall we expect from the TJTPs’ implementation? Read more.
04 May – Online

All policy is gendered, and gender inequality and climate change are interconnected. In a society structured around hierarchical gender relations, policies will
always have an unequal gendered impact. Ignoring this reinforces existing inequalities.

At this policy breakfast, we’ll discuss the findings of the
Climate and gender policy’ policy brief, which argues that gender equality and climate change should both be mainstreamed throughout all EU internal and external activities. The synergies between them should be fully explored in order to achieve the greatest co-benefits. Join us with Gill Allwood, Professor at Nottingham Trent University and author of the policy brief as well as Kata Tüttő, Deputy mayor of Budapest; Anke Stock, Senior Gender Expert at Women Engage for a Common Future and Laeticia Thissen, FEPS Gender policy analyst.

27 April – Online

The climate crisis constitutes the largest threat to public health in the 21st century, from which several climate-sensitive direct or indirect health risks emerge.
At this policy breakfast in cooperation with FES, we debated the link between climate, health and inequalities. We discussed with two co-authors of theClimate and health policy‘ policy brief, as well as Celine Charveriat, former director of IEEP and Tomáš Petříček, director of Progresivní analytické centrum. We highlighted the inequity of the health impact of the climate crisis, the risks of crossing the planetary boundaries for our mental health and the importance of improving the well-being of people to make society more resilient.
25 April – FEPS HQ

What factors or actors could help reinvigorate arms control and non-proliferation regimes? How can growing levels of confrontation and mistrust on the international stage affect drivers of conflict in the long term?

We discussed these questions during the fourth expert roundtable of the Foresight project ‘The long-term implications of the war in Ukraine‘, which focused on the issues of the prospects for arms control, disarmament, non-proliferation, technological innovation, conflict prevention and human security.

Are you a woman in a leadership position in civil society? Do you feel satisfied with your job? Do you have a good work-life balance? Do you feel empowered by your work?
We want to know your opinion on feminist leadership and your experience as a manager! Our objective is to deepen our collective understanding of how NGOs can transform outdated workplace dynamics and bring about a much-needed seismic shift culture of work. Take the survey here!

The approach of the EU and its member states to migration and asylum is increasingly focusing on the externalisation of their management and on the returns of all those people who do not qualify for protection. This approach based on containment is not only morally questionable, but it is also short-sighted and doomed to fail.
With this dossier, the Progressive Post wants to look at the shortcomings of current European and national policies.

Jérôme Creel, Director for Research at Sciences Po, OFCE and David Rinaldi, FEPS Director of Studies and Policies, discuss and elaborate on the policy study: ‘Making Next-Generation EU a permanent tool‘. They argue that this would open up the possibility of a
fundamental political leap: a breakthrough towards a “political Europe“. It could also equip the EU with means to deliver European public goods, steer the transitions and support strategic autonomy
