The Future of European Social Rights

EuSocialCit policy symposium


In-person event:

In a period of rapid change and evolving societal challenges, this policy symposium will bring together leading scholars and policymakers to discuss how the European Union can strengthen its social dimension and foster, in the face of global uncertainty, convergence towards better working and living conditions for its citizens.

The event marks three years of research conducted by the EuSocialCit consortium, focusing on EU social citizenship, the progress made in implementing the European Pillar of Social Rights, and the associated reform agenda. Employing a novel multi-level resource-based social rights framework, the project has assessed the current state of EU social citizenship at both the EU and national levels, thereby identifying emerging challenges and potential policy measures. By combining these new insights from the project and alternative policy scenarios with contributions from prominent policy makers at EU and national level, the symposium aims to support the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR) and forge trajectories that pave the way for a more equitable Europe.

This event will be followed by a networking cocktail

Registration ends on 20 June
