Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS)


The FEPS is a think tank of social democratic politicians at the EU level with the mission to develop innovative research, policy advice, training and debates to inspire as well as inform progressive politics and policies across Europe. The FEPS regards pressing challenges that Europe faces today, aiming towards connection and coherence among stakeholders. These come from politics, academia, and civil society at local, regional, national, European, and global levels. Its ambition is to promote the principles of the EU, such as freedom, equality, solidarity, democracy, respect of human rights, fundamental freedoms and human dignity, and respect of the rule of law.
