Democratic socialism is an international political movement for the promotion of freedom, social justice and solidarity. Its main objective is a world of peace and prosperity in which the fundamental values are consolidated and each individual has the opportunity to savour a meaningful life and develop his/ her personality within a democratic society which safeguards the protection of human and social rights. PASOK as a socialistic party in a national level and within the framework of its close cooperation with the Socialist International shares the same principles. This thematic unit provides information about the Socialist International, the Socialist International Women and PASOK and it is divided into two subsections which include more specialized information for the Socialistic International and PASOK. These subsections will be enriched with new material as time goes by.
