FEPS wishes you a healthy, happy,
and prosperous New Year!
FEPS will continue its many research projects in 2015.
Have a look at three of our main areas of focus:
Growth and Jobs in Europe
It has now become clear, even among the most conservatives, that austerity policies have been detrimental for Europe and that they have not led to the "promised" results. Despite spending cuts across Europe, government debt levels have continued to rise, imbalances and inequalities have severely widened. Unless Europe embarks on an alternative and progressive new economic trajectory we risk facing a period of secular stagnation.
The Future of EU-US relations:
Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)
There is a need for a better understanding of what the TTIP is. After a fruitful Transatlantic seminar in Washington this autumn, FEPS listed 10 steps forward for progressive family and will continue the debate asking if TTIP is another free-trade charade or a real opportunity for both EU and US.
Facing Democratic Malaise and the threat for the EU
Populism is both a reaction to, and a product of, the growing distance between citizens and their institutions of governance, whether that is at state or European level. Through a selection of case studies in Europe and North America, this book – edited by FEPS with Italianieuropei and CRS – represents an effort to further understand groups ranging from new street movements and quasi-parliamentary organisations and the conditions that allow for their growth.
