European Commission (DG EMPL): The Social Pillar and European Semester as tools for delivering social Europe – a reflection with civil society

17 April, 09:00-17:00 | Crown Plaza, Le Palace Hotel, Brussels

The Seminar will examine recent reforms in supporting social inclusion in the context of the European Semester, focusing on three thematic areas:

  • Social inclusion, safety net and poverty prevention in changing societies;
  • Efficient Employment Services for a recovering economy; and
  • Securing equal opportunities through labour-market relevant education.

The Seminar will invite feedback from civil society, who are active in these three fields. Catherine Naughton, Vice-President of Social Platform, is one of the invited speakers.

The Seminar is being organised by the European Centre of Expertise (ECE) in the field of Labour Law, Employment and Labour Market Policies on behalf of the Directorate General (DG) for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion of the European Commission, Unit A.1 (Employment and Social Aspects of European Semester).
