With the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, laws were progressively implemented to protect the labour class. Two centuries later, it is reasonable to wonder about the future of our Welfare State system. Will our social rights be preserved in the future? What about our growing elderly population: will they be treated with care and dignity? And what about the young generation? With the aging population in Europe, who will finance the welfare states? What about innovative forms for providing care for the weakest, such as social enterprise?
