Call for Position Papers for the Democratic Left in Southeast Europe

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung worked throughout 2016 and 2017 on an initiative called the Democratic Left in Southeast Europe #DemLeftSEE.

This initiative aimed to translate civic action into an overarching platform with actionable positions and policy proposals from local political struggles across the region. This platform, presented for the first time in November 2017, is expected to continue to grow. The current version of the platform can be found here:

Given that many policy areas are not (sufficiently) represented in the current platform, we are inviting everyone interested to submit proposals for position papers on new topics.

More information on the overall initiative, as well as the application process, including deadlines, remuneration, and requirements can be found here.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at info(at)
