Building inclusive welfare systems - A dialogue between research and practice

5 June 2014, Brussels

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

All over Europe, formerly ‘passive’ social protection systems are undergoing substantial reform. Under the policy agendas of activation and more recently, social investment, welfare states are seeking to simultaneously increase the labour market participation of formerly excluded groups (such as women, youth, elderly people and migrants) and the efficiency of employment services. In order to achieve these goals, policy-makers have not only introduced programmatic policy changes (such as curtailing the duration or eligibility of/for benefits) but also changes to the governance systems through which social policies are administered. Especially the local governance level has come to play an important role under ‘new welfare’ because it is here where employment incentives and measures can be tailored most effectively to individual client cases as well as regional labour market characteristics.

In June 2014, four international research projects funded by the European Commission under the call “Local welfare systems favouring social cohesion” – COPE, FLOWS, LOCALISE and WILCO – presented their policy-relevant findings to an audience of policy-makers, researchers, and interested others in Brussels. The aim of the conference was to fuel a constructive dialogue between practitioners and researchers.

Research meets diplomacy: Europe as a Global Actor

5 June 2014, Brussels

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

On 5 June 2014, DG Research and Innovation, in cooperation with the FLASH-IT project, organized a conference on “Research Meets Diplomacy: Europe as a Global Actor”. This conference was on the one hand intended to take stock of the rich research financed under the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities programme under FP7. On the other hand, through an exchange between researchers and EU foreign policy-makers, ideas were discussed on future topics for research on the EU as a global actor under Societal Challenge 6 “Europe in a changing world - Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies” of Horizon 2020. The debates concentrated on three major themes:

  • the EU’s capacities as a global actor,
  • the EU’s neighbourhood with an emphasis on the Mediterranean, and
  • the EU’s role in the wider world and key global challenges, focussing on two regions that have been less in the spotlight: Latin America and the Caribbean and the Pacific.

 

The event brought together over 120 participants from the public and private sector, including many academics and policy-makers.
