Building a social safety-net for the post-Covid EU
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
The past year has seen a wild experiment in social spending. EU governments have provided huge sums to help record numbers of workers, using ad hoc fiscal measures. Have the EU’s welfare systems managed to protect citizens against this exceptional shock or are they outdated in the face of technological and social change? How can we make the social safety net work again, and what role should the EU play?
This session is organised as part of EUSOCIALCIT, a project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
