VENUE TBC

The Foundation for European Progressive Studies and Keele University are jointly undertaking a research project entitled “Role of progressive political parties across Europe in implementation of the climate agenda post COP21.” It follows from previous research followed out by the two centres and seeks to analyse how much influence progressive parties have in climate action, policy and leadership, where the challenges are and where there may be potential to do more. 

To complement the desk analysis we are also holding two seminars with key stakeholders, policy experts and political and civil society representatives. The first one being in October 2016 in Copenhagen, before the COP22 and the second one in January 2017 due to be held in Brussels and that will be just after the COP22. A report considering the initial analyses of this project will be written by Professor Robert Ladrech and presented in its initial form at the first seminar.

This will be a round-table discussion, with some presentations to initiate the debate. It will be an informal conversation under Chatham House Rules. The findings of which will feed our joint research project which will be distributed more widely at a later stage.
