Upcoming Events
5, 6 & 7 July, 8:30 – Online

FEPS, together with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and the Fondation Jean-Jaurès (FJJ) invite you to a new series of virtual breakfast briefings, open to the public, to discuss Strategic Autonomy from three dimensions, which are the building blocks of our collaborative flagship project Strategic Autonomy – Pathways to Progressive Action.

In this second #DataTalks policy breakfast, we discussed data-sharing for sustainability purposes, with specific attention to data-sharing requirements between businesses.

New data governance frameworks can hold great potential for an ecological transformation of our economy. But will the Data Act and other upcoming EU laws deliver on this?

We launched the publication ‘Sustainable Digital Market Design: A data-based approach to the circular economy‘. Authors Philipp Staab and Dominik Piétron, respectively Professor and Research Associate at the Humboldt University Berlin, and Luc Hendrickx, Director at SMEunited, participated in this event. The event took place at FEPS’ office and was co-hosted by MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri.
Sustainable Digital Market Design: A data-based approach to the circular economy

by Dominik Piétron, Philipp Staab & Florian Hofmann

This policy study argues that the design of digital markets holds great potential for an ecological transformation of the economy. Data governance can function as a control instrument for monitoring ecological costs and the digital networking of value creation ecosystems. This will support the emergence of sustainable production and consumption patterns.

The study provides a set of policy recommendations that focus on the need for mandatory data-sharing obligations for suppliers, producers and operators for circular value ecosystems and ecologically oriented innovation. Read more

Talking Green in Europe Lessons on re-framing the public debate on the climate crisis

by Andreas Dimmelmeier

What is the best way to communicate about the climate crisis? Some messages “preach to the converted” but fail to convince. This new Policy Brief of the #TalkingGreen research project asks how progressive actors can communicate about the climate crisis in a way that resonates with people from different backgrounds.

The brief argues that policy proposals for a just transition do not automatically garner public support. To build trust for their proposals, progressives also need to re-frame the public discourse. Read more

ℹ️The #TalkingGreen project, launched in 2021 by FEPS, the Fabian Society, TASC, Progressive Hungary Foundation, and the Institute for Social Democracy, is a research project focused on how low and middle-income people perceive the green transition and consists of
surveys carried out in the United Kingdom, Ireland & Hungary.
Call for participants: Training Days for Social Business – NEW DATE!
Switzerland, 3 September

FEPS, together with its observer member Anny-Klawa-Morf Foundation, is delighted to present a call for participants for the Training Days for Social Business.

The Training Days aim to strengthen the understanding of the importance of social business and share the knowledge about challenges and opportunities from companies and employees working in a decentralized self-management. The project aims to provide new ideas and findings to the social and political discourse in this field. You can find the detailed programme here.
By granting candidate status to Ukraine and Moldova and by recommitting to the EU membership of the Western Balkans, the EU opened a new phase of its enlargement which will redesign the European political map again. It was undoubtedly the right decision to assert European sovereignty and also to welcome an embattled country which is showing with bravery that it belongs to the European future and not to a war of the past. A war of the past in Europe because it combines the clash of empires of WW I with the clash of political regimes of WW II (…) Read more
#122 FEPS Talks Podcast
China-Russia cooperation and the war in Ukraine: a complex relation

What are China’s interests in this war? What does it have to win and, mostly, lose, and how shall we interpret reactions in the Global South?

Listen to the conversation between Prof. Arne Westad, Yale University & Aline Burni, FEPS Policy Analyst for International Relations.

Prof. Westad is an expert on modern international and global history, specialised in eastern Asia’s history since the 18th Century. In this episode, he explains the developments in China-Russia relations, raising awareness of the fact that it is much more complex than often understood.

He highlights that this is a crucial moment for progressives to influence future EU relations with China and Russia and points to some aspects to be considered, notably the challenge to gain more independence from China.
