Improving transport efficiency and reducing its negative impacts is a major political objective of the European Union.

Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) promise to play an important role towards this goal. CAVs are indeed expected to be safer and more energy efficient than existing conventional vehicles and to increase the road network capacity. However, the effect of introducing new technologies and solutions in the transport system depends from a multiplicity of factors due to its intrinsic complexity.

Employment remains the best route out of poverty but the phenomenon of in-work poverty has become all too real in the recent decades.

Since the European Union added a new indicator of “in-work poverty risk” to the European list of social indicators in 2003, the share of employed persons aged over 18 at risk of poverty increased from 8.2% in 2005 to 9% just before the Covid-19 pandemic in 2019 after reaching a peak of 9.8% in the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis.

The event is part of a webinar series on fairness and related issues organised by the Fairness Community of Practice.

Launch of new report "Values and Identities – a policymaker’s guide”
Nov 17 2021
online event
(EU)

Recent years have seen high levels of polarisation, rapid spread of misinformation, a decrease in willingness to compromise, and a historic low in satisfaction with or even outright attacks on democracy.

Politics itself is increasingly turning on a new axis. On top of traditional economic conflicts, cultural values and identity issues have become just as or even more important for policymaking and politics today.
