Progressive European Policies Working Group

This Working Group (WG) will be somewhat different from the other Working Groups. In line with sub-item item v of IIPPE’s item 3 of IIPPE’s constitution (“Objects”), “to engage with activism through formulation of progressive policy and support for progressive movements objectives,” a major part of this WG’s effort will be in applying political economy (in this case to European Policies). Clearly theoretical work (covered by sub-items i to iv of the same point in the constitution) must and will be involved as well, but the difference of this WG is the strong orientation to “policy advocacy.”
