EU labor market panel
16/12/2019

The aim of the seminar was to discuss how the EU Member States should shape the European labour market, having in mind the need to ensure competitiveness, and at the same time maintain their welfare states, despite budgetary constraint. Following the European Pillar of Social Rights and the new president of the European Commission, what are the main priorities at EU level, and which competences should remain at national level? Are there particular challenges in the context of labour migration and how can they be tackled? We would like to discuss the way forward towards achieving ambitious social European agenda, having in mind the need to ensure equal opportunities and equal access to the labour market. Issues such as working conditions, desired level of protection and desired level of EU intervention in national regulations regarding social affairs were discussed.
