Child guarantee in Hungary
11 February, 14:00-17:00

One out of four children in Europe lives in poverty or is at risk of poverty and social exclusion. That is why socialist and social democrats in the EU proposed the European Child Guarantee.

This hybrid public conference will look at the implementation of the Child Guarantee in Hungary. It is the first of a series of events.

Organised by FEPS, the PES Group in the European Committee of the Regions and the Szociális Demokráciáért Intézet (Institute for Social Democracy).

Strategic Autonomy

Does the populist vote rise where most immigrants settle? Do Europe’s far-right parties treat immigration in the same way?

Hervé Le Bras tackles these and many other issues in Le Grand Enfumage (The Great Smokescreen, untranslated) throughout a detailed study of seven different countries: Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The author analyses how these countries’ populist parties are evolving towards an identity-oriented vision, dramatised in France by the concept “grand remplacement”, the great replacement. More about the book here.
Strategic Autonomy
By Ana E. Juncos

This Policy Brief argues that it is in the areas of conflict prevention, mediation, post-conflict peacebuilding and resilience-building where the real EU’s strengths lie. According to the author, any vision of strategic autonomy should take this as the starting point.

This is the third publication of the
EU Strategic Autonomy series by FEPS, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, and Fondation Jean-Jaurès. Stay tuned, many more will be published soon!

Impressive, as it resulted in an absolute PS majority in the Portuguese parliament, something that had happened only once before in the party’s long history. Surprising, as it was won against the odds of the polls before the elections – especially those very close to election day. Read more
