Progressive proposals for the turbulent times: How to boost the political, organizational and electoral potential‘ is the 13th volume of the Next Left book series. Its content was developed within the Focus Group, established in 2009 by FEPS and Karl-Renner-Institut. The group now carries on the work under the leadership of MEP Andreas Schieder and continues to be a unique forum for profound deliberations on the future of social democracy.

In the years 2020 – 2022, respective members conducted research that allowed us to correlate difficult lessons from the pandemic and translate them into proposals to empower Progressives to build back better internally. There are ways in which the movement can consolidate its narrative, regain its confidence, revive in-house processes, and reconnect with citizens – all to become a viable alternative in times of anxiety and discontent. Altogether, the book can serve as an inspiration, a manual and a reading that may reassure Progressives. Indeed, it is now, more than ever, a time for the Progessice agenda of respect, solidarity and progress.
