SocDem Asia in partnership with the Progressive Alliance, hosted by the NasDem Party of Indonesia brings together social democratic and progressive political parties across Asia and other regions for a conference on the discourses of identity politics and the politics of identities.
As a set of principles, social democracy both has points of convergence and differences with identity politics. While recognizing the concerns of specific societal groups, social democracy’s ultimate aim is to extend human rights on a universal scale—regardless of gender, religion or ethnicity. As a progressive movement, we propose harnessing the power in diversity and inclusion, taking on current discourse on politics of identities and how this is realized in various country settings and contexts.
