Beyond GDP? Measuring real economic progress for better lives

The ETUI and EPSU (European Federation of Public Service Unions) are jointly organising a one-day workshop to reflect on how we define and measure social progress, that is, improvements in well-being in societies, and in the current circumstances, also how we measure social regression.
The event aims at bringing together research contributions on the issue in order to explore the state-of-play and its potential relevance for reframing the current debates on the economic policies in Europe that are entirely focused on GDP growth alone.

Interpretation EN/FR will be available.
