Presentation-debate ‘Social policy in the European Union: state of play’

social developments 2016 cover

The European Social Observatory (OSE) and the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) have the pleasure of inviting you to a presentation-debate marking the publication of the 17th edition of their flagship book.

‘Social Policy in the European Union: State of Play 2016’reports on recent EU and national social policymaking, with contributions from leading scholars pointing to a ‘crisis’, the best word to characterize 2015. Tensions in the EU reached an unprecedented level: the migration crisis showed the EU the limits of its decision-making capacity, economic weakness continued to prevail, austerity policies and the badly handled socioeconomic Greek crisis turned populations against the EU – and then came the Brexit vote.

Interpretation will be provided (EN-FR). A light lunch will be offered at 1 pm.

Programme available here :

We hope you will participate in the presentation and find it enlightening. If you plan on coming, please register here (registration is mandatory for security reasons) by 20th February at the latest.
