New Newsletter. New Design.

European elections, #PGS19, new fellows – our newsletter 1/2019!

We look back: at the Progressive Governance Symposium 2019, Europe Listens and other exciting projects – and into the future: with new team members, new fellows and new impulses for our liberal and social democracy. And all that in a new creative design!

What drives Das Progressive Zentrum these days? We revel in memories of the successful Progressive Governance Symposium 2019 and discuss our most inspiring publications: just in time for the European elections about a European public sphere and Germany’s role in the EU; about the 4th Industrial Revolution; or about the fight against anti-democratic populism.

Furthermore, we welcomed new colleagues as well as fellows and we reflected about how a think tank in Berlin can contribute to making our society more liberal, more social and more democratic. What we came up with? Find out in our latest newsletter edition 1/2019!
