FES supports its partners (government, civil society and trade unions) to develop and implement social democratic policies for an economy based on sustainability, redistributive justice and decent work. The Just and Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation programme is divided into the following key focus areas: industrial policy; social policy; trade unions (labour market); and climate & energy. We focus on heterodox political economy and social policy programmes. Some of our recent major policy interventions include: The National Minimum Wage; National Health Insurance; Living Wage; and Reindustrialisation. FES also places emphasis on building political agency and engagement required for building an alternative egalitarian economy. The main instruments used to achieve this objective are: policy advocacy, training and research. FES supports a participatory and democratic approach in all its activities.
