Together with our partners from the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Social Europe ran a project on the situation of progressive parties from across the world with a specific focus on social democratic parties in Europe. Most progressive parties find themselves in difficult situations in their respective political systems and it was the aim of this project is to identify their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats using a SWOT analysis framework often used in management. The main aim of the project was to provide a comparative analytical perspective that identifies common features whilst paying tribute to individual specific circumstances. This eBook brings together the full project collection with inputs by world leading experts.
