Next Left is the only pan-European programme that features in a complex, coherent, transversal, and transnational way the ideological, political, and organisational questions on the future of Social Democracy.

Therefore, inside FEPS, it became a hub for several offspring initiatives – resulting in several conferences (such as FEPS-Fabian New Year Conference) round tables on the national level, providing space for political consultancy, and further publications (in the form of pamphlets and books).

The networks it features also contribute to the other aspects of FEPS’ work, with the EPO (European Progressive Observatory), the Next Left dossier in the Progressive Post, and FEPS Talks among the key examples.
