Social Europe Journal (SEJ) is the leading eJournal addressing issues of critical interest to progressives across Europe and beyond. It was founded in late 2004 and has been continuously published since spring 2005.
SEJ is above all a forum for debate and innovative thinking. We not only deal with social democracy and European policy but also use ‘Social Europe’ as a viewpoint to examine issues in global affairs, political economy, industrial policy and international relations.
As an eJournal, we encourage interactive communication. It is our goal to make as many readers as possible active participants of SEJ through commenting and social media. By providing opportunities for the exchange of ideas, SEJ is pioneering a new form of European public realm that is increasingly important for the future of the European project.
We are committed to publishing stimulating contributions by the most thought-provoking people. Since its founding, SEJ has published writers of the highest calibre including several Nobel laureates, international political leaders and academics as well as some of the best young talent.
