Progressive Yearbook is FEPS newest initiative. Taking stock of last year’s events and developments, it will help highlight the most important achievements, as well as the lessons, of 2019. But our Progressive Yearbook is also, and above all, about the future. It is an opportunity to stop for a moment and look forward, set priorities, and put on paper some of the expectations and plans against which future developments will have to be tested.

As the leading progressive think tank in Europe, FEPS wants to showcase by its Yearbook its strong network in gathering political leaders, activists and academic experts from our political family, as well as collect critical data and deliver sharp analysis along with concrete proposals.
