How European and global social democracy can steer a course through the crises.

With the war in Ukraine, the cost-of-living crisis, the lingering pandemic and the onrushing threat of climate change, a bewildering array of transnational political challenges present themselves. Can social democrats articulate convincing solutions to these challenges, behind which progressives can rally, in Europe and globally?

The FEPS-FES publication ‘Towards a social democratic century? How European and global social democracy can steer a course through the crises’ gathers interviews and chapters contributed by political thinkers and practitioners, and presents a rich repertoire of ideas and proposals which offer some reasons to hope for better times ahead.
