Foreign Policy Network

fpn.jpg

Chaired by Jeppe Kofod, the PES Foreign Policy Network is composed by national specialists from PES member parties (national parliamentarians, Ministers, MEPs, Commissioners) and external stakeholders (NGOs, trade unions and experts). Together they debate best practices and shape PES proposals and positions towards a common EU external policy strategy. 

Each network gathers three times a year.
