Social Democratic Politics and Values
Topic

Social Democratic Politics and Values

Dialogue SOE is committed to advancing social democratic policies and values in southeastern Europe. Our work in this field is based upon youth exchange and political academy programs. We aim to advance responsible, equitable, and inclusive governance practices. more

Social and Economic Justice
Topic

Social and Economic Justice

Substantive democratic governance practices are rooted in equitable economic arrangements. Social justice, more broadly, is intrinsic to the regional agenda the FES advances through its activities. Dialogue SOE organizes platforms and provides comparative analysis on regional economic and social policies. more

Progressive Peace Policy
Topic

Progressive Peace Policy

Peace and stability initiatives represent a decades-long cornerstone of the FES' work in southeastern Europe. Both democratization and socio-economic justice are intrinsic aspects of a larger progressive peace policy in the region, but so too are consistent threat assessments and efforts to prevent conflict before it erupts. more

Dialogue Southeast Europe

After more than two decades of engagement in southeastern Europe, the FES recognizes that the challenges and problems still facing this region can best be resolved through a shared regional framework. Our commitment to advancing our core interests in democratic consolidation, social and economic justice and peace through regional cooperation, has since 2015 been strengthened by establishing an infrastructure to coordinate the FES' regional work out of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina: the Regional Dialogue Southeast Europe (Dialogue SOE).
