2nd annual meeting of the network of trade union related economists, Brussels 19-20th September 2017

On the 19-20th September, the 2nd annual meeting of the network of trade union related economists took place in Brussels, jointly organized by the ETUI and AK Wien. Around 40 economists from research institutes, trade unions and academia from around Europe participated.

The TUREC network aims at building and maintaining links between European trade-union-related economists in an effort to enhance cooperation between them and pool institutional resources in the production of research that supports, reinforces and stimulates the European labour movement. During the two days, the economists of the network exchanged information about their current activities, discussed important issues of economic policy with which they are confronted and deliberated on ways through which the can move together beyond the current restrictive economic policies. The themes on which the meeting focused this year were the forthcoming new OECD Jobs Strategy, the deepening of the EMU, globalization and labour standards, and industrial policy.
