Shaping industry from the left

September 2015

In 2015 a group of politicians, scientists, activists and trade union representatives reflected on solutions for the multiple crises in Europe. The environmental world crisis as well as the un-employment of millions of Europeans are raising significant challenges. A part of the solution for the most urgent problems lies in a progressive industrial policy. Only an environmentally responsible and social industrialisation can create god and sustainable jobs in Europe.

The basis for our discussions around a progressive industrial policy were nine country reports from Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal and Slovenia. The reports analyse the history and development of each industry and end with concrete proposals for shaping industrial policies from the left.
