Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats

 

The S&D Group stands for an inclusive European society based on principles of freedom, equality, solidarity, diversity and fairness. Our MEPs are committed to fighting for social justice, jobs and growth, consumer rights, sustainable development, financial market reform and human rights to create a stronger and more democratic Europe and a better future for everyone. In today's times of crisis, the S&D Group's priority is to fight unemployment and ensure that our societies and markets become fairer. We want to give people back trust in the EU and hope for their future. These principles inspire our daily work, in the European Parliament and beyond.
