Jobelius, S. & Voessing, K. ORCID: 0000-0002-7269-0317 (2020). Social democracy, party of values. Renewal, a journal of social democracy, 28(3), pp. 52-60.


In order to reinvigorate their electoral appeal, social democratic parties should become parties of values. They should abandon the social compromise model, which is based on defining and pleasing a target audience. Value-based social democratic parties, by contrast, emphasise their values and the policies that promote them.
