    27 February 2017  Presentation-debate
  
Social policy in the European Union: state of play 2016

To mark the 17th edition of this flagship publication, the European Social Observatory and the European Trade Union Institute hold a presentation-debate
hosted by the Workers' Group - Group II of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).

Confirmed speakers: 
Gabriele Bischoff, European Economic and Social Committee - Denis Bouget, European Social Observatory - Maxime Cerutti, BusinessEurope - Georges Dassis, European Economic and Social Committee - Sofia Fernandes, Jacques Delors Institute - Esther Lynch, European Trade Union Confederation - Ruth Owen, FEANTSA - Ruth Paserman, Cabinet of European Commissioner Marianne Thyssen - Philippe Pochet, European Trade Union Institute -  Martin Seeleib-Kaiser, University of Oxford - Bart Vanhercke, European Social Observatory

Venue:
EESC - VMA Building - rue Van Maerlant 2 - 1040 Brussels   Map

The book reports on recent EU and national social policymaking, with contributions from leading scholars pointing to a ‘crisis’, the best word to characterize 2015. Tensions in the EU reached an unprecedented level: the migration crisis showed the EU the limits of its decision-making capacity, economic weakness continued to prevail, austerity policies and the badly handled socioeconomic Greek crisis turned populations against the EU – and then came the Brexit vote.

    Past event  OSE Lunchtime Session @ EESC
  
Europeanised or European? Representation by civil society organisations in EU policy-making

Keynote speaker: Dr.Sandra Kröger, Senior Lecturer, University of Exeter

Panel discussion: Gabriele Bischoff, President of the Workers' Group, EESC, Sian Jones, Policy Coordinator, European Anti-Poverty Network, Roman Haken, Member of the EESC (Group III)
Chair: Bart Vanhercke, OSE Director
 
 
 
The
monograph Europeanised or European? Representation by civil society organisations in EU policy-making (2016) by Sandra Kröger looks at how agricultural, environmental and anti-poverty organisations engage with EU affairs; the ways they conceive of interest representation and the strategies they choose to represent their constituencies across regional, national and European levels of governance; and how being engaged with the EU affects them, focusing throughout on the perspectives that actors working in these organisations have on the above issues.
 
During this OSE Lunchtime Session, Sandra Kröger will be focusing on three questions: To what degree are civil society organisations Europeanized? Who are they addressing when they engage in political representation in EU affairs and with which strategies? And what are the incentives and disincentives for civil society organisation to become engaged with EU policy-making?
Gabriele Bischoff, Sian Jones and Roman Haken will provide critical feedback, after which there will be ample time for discussion and questions from the audience.
