The progressive governance network brings together centre-left heads of state, governments, politicians and intellectuals from across the world to address key challenges in a globalised world.
While the challenges facing progressives in today’s interdependent world are immense, so are the possibilities for change. Globalisation has led to unprecedented opportunities but its benefits have not reached many and inequalities have increased. The recent financial crisis called into question the neo-liberal consensus that dominated the global political economy since the 1980’s and the time is ripe for a paradigm shift to a more sustainable and inclusive system. At the same time, there are no easy answers for how this transition would be achievable and progressives face political difficulties in many parts of the world.
