  • This publication is the documentation of the seminar organised by transform! and the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation in June 2019, right after the European Elections.

    The event is a long lasting cooperation between the two foundations that takes place annually. This year's gathering was focused on the results of the European Elections and their impact on the European left. The eDossier contains selected contributions and could serve as material for the debate on the prospective European strategy of the left forces.
