In view of these challenges, FES London invited the frontrunners of the debate on identity politics of the German Social democrats and organised a roundtable debate with leading members of think tanks and politicians from the UK. The participants discussed how such a narrative might look like and which elements it should entail. As a second event on the same issue, FES London hosted a workshop in cooperation with the Fabian International Policy Group, where the young generation of policy makers discussed identity politics for the progressive left in the UK. Many participants highlighted a gap between young people’s multi-layered identity and the political discourse, which often focuses only on nationality and age. The debate was enriched by comments from German and British colleagues who have been thinking about these question in a similar context.
