Making Progressive Politics Work
Author: Policy Network (eds)
Date:22 April 2014
As the slow return to growth begins to gather pace in western democracies, the danger is that insufficient attention has been given to structural economic weaknesses and long-term stresses on representational politics and governance. This ranges from technological change and disruptive economic forces to growing insecurity and inequality, fragile tax systems, skills and education mismatches, polarised labour markets, uncertainty over middle income jobs, and vulnerable social security settlements.
François Hollande after One Year
Author: Renaud Thillaye
Date:01 May 2013
For many European commentators and politicians, there is no doubt about Hollande’s central shortcoming: he has yet to get real about fiscal discipline and structural reform. France has only itself to blame for its poor performance, unsustainable welfare state and huge, still increasing public debt. This paper takes a different view: the record of the PS-run government is far from being negligible after one year.

European Welfare States after the Crisis
Author: Patrick Diamond & Guy Lodge
Date:28 January 2013
Governments in the UK and elsewhere in Europe are taking a position on welfare reform which is in line with public opinion, but may be the wrong strategic choice in the long-term.
After the Third Way
Author: Olaf Cramme & Patrick Diamond (eds)
Date:02 April 2012
The political left believed the crisis of neoliberalism would play into its hands. The opposite has proved to be the case. No new variety of capitalism has emerged to fill the void and left-of-centre parties have lost a devastating run of European elections.
Social progress in the 21st Century
Author: The Amsterdam Process
Date:12 July 2011
Major new publication on how Europe's centre-left parties can return as forces of social and economic progress. How should we redefine social progress in the era to come, and what are the implications for our social models, societal vision and the direction of welfare reform? 
Challenging the politics of evasion
Author: Olaf Cramme, Patrick Diamond & Roger Liddle
Date:04 December 2009

In challenging and contesting the "politics of evasion" this new Policy Network paper offers a candid assessment of the centre-left's current predicament, setting out a path for a much needed period of ideological renewal. 

Responses to the global crisis: charting a progressive path
Author: Olaf Cramme & Elena Jurado (ed)
Date:19 March 2009

The global financial crisis has dealt a shattering blow to the neoliberal faith in laissez-faire as the dominant guiding principle for the organisation of markets. The crisis has also exposed the fragility of globalisation: as sources of financing dry up, we are witnessing a dramatic collapse in world trade, shrinking capital flows and a worrying rise in anti-immigrant sentiment.
