Independent Commission for Sustainable Equality (ICSE)

The Commission’s mission is to focus political and public attention on the central importance of economic, social, environmental and territorial inequalities across Europe, and to provide strategic policy orientations and concrete policy proposals on how to decisively reduce these inequalities, in order to set the whole of the European Union rapidly on a new development path towards equality, cohesion and re-convergence in line with the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

In order to fulfil this mission, the Commission will bring together outstanding personalities from politics, civil society and academia, all of whom are dedicated to sustainability, social progress and justice, under the joint chairpersonship of Poul Nyrup Rasmussen, former Prime Minister of Denmark and former President of the PES, and Louka Katseli, former Minister of Labour and Social Security, and of the Economy and Competitiveness. The Commission, developed within the frame of Progressive Society, is planning to report its recommendations to the S&D Group in October 2018.
