The S&Ds will continue to lead the battle for the traceability of minerals. The S&D Group underlines the importance of binding EU legislation for European companies involved in the sourcing of so called "conflict minerals" which fuel armed conflicts and human rights abuses. The group is highly concerned by the abusive exploitation of mineral sources and child labour that trade in these minerals causes.

After the summer break, Relaunching Europe is back on the road! Where to this time? The amazing capital city of Warsaw, Poland. So on September 24 come and join us for our open debate and discussion on the changes needed in Europe and in Poland.


In a series of events across the European Union, leading politicians will meet with citizens, academics and representatives of cultural and social organisations to discuss the future we want for Europe. The S&D Group strongly believe it’s time for a change of direction.
