Seminar – May 6

4.30-6.30 pm.

Growing inequality and social differences in Europe are among the major concerns of EU-citizens. The European Commission and the Council have been criticized for a lack of concern about the social impact of their economic and budgetary policies. The new President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, has announced that he would put the social dimension of the EU higher on the agenda. But how do we create a stronger social dimension to the European Union?

Think Tank Europa invites you to participate in The social dimension of the EU: Tough nuts to crack – a European seminar with Professor Frank Vandenbroucke, former Deputy Prime Minister in Belgium and former Minister for Employment, Pensions and Social Affairs.
