What Citizens expect from Europe?

Evaluation of a Comparative Population Survey in Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Spain and Sweden

Europe needs social democracy!

Why do we really want Europe? Can we demonstrate to European citizens the opportunities offered by social politics and a strong social democracy in Europe? This
is the aim of the new Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung project »Politics for Europe«. It shows
that European integration can be done in a democratic, economic and socially balanced way and with a reliable foreign policy.
The following issues will be particularly important:
– Democratic Europe – Social and ecological transformation
– Economic and social policy in Europe
– Foreign and security policy in Europe
We focus on these issues in our events and publications. We provide impetus and
offer advice to decision-makers from politics and trade unions. Our aim is to drive
the debate on the future of Europe forward and to develop specific proposals to
shape central policy areas. With this publication series we want to engage you in
the debate on the »Politics for Europe«!
Further information on the project can be found here:


The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is the oldest political foundation in Germany
with a rich tradition dating back to its foundation in 1925. Today, it remains loyal
to the legacy of its namesake and campaigns for the core ideas and values of social democracy: freedom, justice and solidarity. It has a close connection to social
democracy and free trade unions.
FES promotes the advancement of social democracy, in particular by:
– Political educational work to strengthen civil society
– Think Tanks
– International cooperation with our international network of offices in more
than 100 countries
– Support for talented young people
– Maintaining the collective memory of social democracy with archives, libraries
and more.
