(programmatekst in het Nederlands)

The world is changing. Old certainties are challenged, new opportunities to make progress arise. The vast challenge for progressive politicians in Europe and beyond is to create jobs of the future, to fight inequalities within countries and between countries and to make markets at service of society. For these common challenges we need to work together in Europe and we need to develop new ideas.

What is the new unifying idea for Europe and how can we revive the progressive notion in global and transatlantic politics? Is social Europe a tired slogan or a future promise? And how can we strengthen our democracies and build strong and grassroots progressive movements? This night of ideas and debates will revolve around these questions. 

Featuring: Jens Stoltenberg (Former Prime Minister of Norway, new Secretary General of NATO), Martin O'Malley (governor of Maryland), Anthony Giddens (emeritus professor, London School of Economics), Federica Mogherini  (Minister of Foreign Affairs, Italy), Jutta Urpilainen (Minister of Finance, Finland), Lodewijk Asscher (Deputy Prime Minister of The Netherlands) and Diederik Samsom (Political leader PvdA)

Making Progressive Politics Work in Europe and beyond

De wereld is in beweging. Oude zekerheden staan op het spel en nieuwe kansen om vooruitgang te boeken doen zich voor. De grote opdracht voor progressieve politici in Europa en daarbuiten is om te werken aan banen voor de toekomst, ongelijkheid binnen en tussen landen te bestrijden en markten dienstbaar te maken aan de samenleving. Voor deze gezamenlijke uitdaging hebben we elkaar in Europa en daarbuiten nodig.

Wat zijn de nieuwe ideeën voor Europese samenwerking? Is een sociaal Europa een oude slogan of een hoopgevende belofte voor de toekomst? Hoe kunnen we de democratie versterken en de progressieve beweging uitbouwen? Deze en andere vragen staan centraal tijdens verschillende debatten op donderdagavond 24 april in de Balie in Amsterdam.

Met onder anderen: Jens Stoltenberg (toekomstig secretaris-generaal van de NAVO en voormalig premier van Noorwegen), Martin O'Malley (gouverneur van de staat Maryland in de VS), Anthony Giddens (emeritus-hoogleraar London School of Economics), Federica Mogherini (Minister van Buitenlandse Zaken van Italië), Jutta Urpilainen (leider van de SDP Finland en Minister van Financiën), Lodewijk Asscher (vicepremier van Nederland) en Diederik Samsom (politiek leider Partij van de Arbeid).

De avond wordt georganiseerd in het kader van de Progressive Governance Conference 2014.  Ieder jaar komen progressieve politici, wetenschappers en beleidsmakers bij elkaar om nieuwe ideeën te ontwikkelen. Dit jaar is deze jaarlijkse Progressive Governance Conference in Amsterdam. Op donderdagavond is het debat opengesteld voor het publiek.
