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, which are organized both on the national and regional levels. Dialogue SOE also creates inclusive spaces for discussing regional challenges. In doing so, we aim to advance responsible, equitable, and participatory governance practices. Our work has expanded from traditional partners to regional civil society actors and policy-making initiatives. Together with sister FES offices, our focus is on building the broad, progressive coalitions necessary to advance the social and democratic consolidation of southeastern Europe.
