Digitalisation & future of work: Social protection for all?

Employment and Social policy
Date: Wednesday, 07 March 2018 12:30 - 14:30

Venue: Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the EU  |  City: Brussel, Belgium

Upcoming on March 7: <a href=


The impacts of digitalisation on employment patterns are far-reaching. With the rise of new forms of employment relations in the sharing economy, designing universal access to adequate social protection is key for a social Europe.

According to the principles 5 and 12 of the European Pillar of Social Rights, workers, and, under comparable conditions, the self-employed, have the right to adequate social protection – regardless of the type and duration of their employment relationship. On March 13, the European Commission plans to publish a proposal for a Council Recommendation on social protection for people in all forms of employment: Would the EU have the competence or even the duty to provide a solid framework for social protection for all? How far can the European Commission go in its proposals? What approaches could be politically feasible?

As the European Commission is considering EU-level measures, CESI and the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the EU invite you to discuss with representatives of the EU institutions, think tanks and trade unions on how social protection could be practically ensured for all, including those active in the collaborative economy.
