Building a European Social Standards Union – what role for the European Semester?

Employment and Social policy
Date: Thursday, 07 December 2017 09:00 - 12:00

Venue: European Parliament  |  City: Ixelles, Belgium

This seminar is jointly hosted by the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) with Sergio Gutiérrez Prieto (S&D) and Jean Lambert (Greens/EFA). It aims to see how progress can be made on social rights, social standards and poverty reduction, through the main EU coordination instrument – the European Semester – in the context of 1 in 4 of the population (119 million people) still at risk of poverty and social exclusion in the EU.

It comes at a timely moment, following President Juncker’s State of the Union Address calling for a “European Union of Social Standards”, the Inter-Institutional Proclamation on the European Pillar of Social Rights and the recent adoption of the 2018 Annual Growth Survey The key questions that will be: how well is the European Semester performing on social rights and poverty reduction? How will the Pillar of Social Rights be mainstreamed? What changes should be made to transform the Semester into a balanced economic and social instrument? How will grass-roots actors, including people experiencing poverty be involved?

The seminar will open with an exchange of views between stakeholders, and European Parliament assessing current performance of the Semester, including presenting EAPN’s 2017 Assessment of the National Reform Programmes: Social Rights or Social Plight? The second panel will involve an exchange between the European Parliament, European Commission and Council on the way forward, with an active debate with the audience.
