Our mission, vision and values

The S&D Group is the leading centre-left political group in the European Parliament and the second largest, with 187 members from all 28 EU countries. The S&D Group stands for an inclusive European society based on principles like:

 
 

Freedom

 
 

Equality

 
 

Solidarity

 
 

Diversity

 
 

Fairness

Our MEPs are committed to fighting for social justice, jobs and growth, consumer rights, sustainable development, financial market reform and human rights to create a stronger and more democratic Europe and a better future for everyone.

In today's times of crisis, the S&D Group's priority is to fight unemployment and ensure that our societies and markets become fairer. We want to give people back trust in the EU and hope for their future. These principles inspire our daily work, in the European Parliament and beyond.
