Progressive Agenda for Europe

DiEM25 is developing common whitepapers for eight pillars:

1. Transparency: Introducing transparent government across Europe
2. Refugees and Migration
3. The European New Deal: Rationalising Europe’s economy
4. Labour: Labour, technology, employment and the distribution of income, beyond the capital-labour contract, basic income
5. Ecological Transition: Imagining a post-capitalist economic and social model
6. A European Constitution: Imagining a democratic pan-European constitution and the process that may lead to it
7. Technological Sovereignty: Democratising technology and innovation
8. Vision for Culture

Each whitepaper is created with the input of all of DiEM25's members as well as a range of experts in the field.
