August 27, 2015
Author: Ania Skrzypek

This Policy Brief was drafted as a reflection after a seminar held by FEPS, Policy Network and Renner Institut in Oxford in July 2015. It is organized alongside 10 Core Guidelines, which were inspired by different points made respectively during the debate. Each of them is deliberated in details and closed with a reflection of what standpoints social democrats could consider consequently in order to ensure primacy of progressive politics in these fragmented times.
