  • Contributions of the annual strategic seminar of transform! europe and Rosa Luxemburg Foundation.

    The annual strategic seminar of transform! and the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation aims to give space for left-wing analyses and policy proposals which can challenge the neoliberal doctrine. We always wish for debates on the most crucial issues of the European politics and the stance of the left. The main goal of transform!, as the political foundation related with the Party of the European Left and as network of more than 30 political foundation throughout Europe, is to bring the forces of the Left (political parties, political initiatives/campaigns, progressive trade unions and activists from the social movements) together in order to build a common space of dialogue and political resistance in Europe. We consider this step as fundamental for developing a radical strategy based on the interests of the European people.
