Democracies around the world are under pressure. The economic and socio-political performance of democracy has been challenged by right-wing populist movements and the mismanagement of several global crises. The future of social democracy depends in large part on how we can build together resilient, resistant and effective democracies, capable of facing the challenges of the future with our values?
The Progressive Alliance, in collaboration with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and in cooperation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation (FES), will address this question by organising a series of debates at regional level (Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe) with progressive personalities from various backgrounds, before presenting their results in November 2021 at the Global Progressive Forum conference.
We will debate the following questions:
President MDC-Alliance, Zimbabwe
President of the Central African People’s Liberation Movement (MLPC)
Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS), Congo
Thilo Schöne, FES Ivory Cost
