Constructing social policy indicators


Keynote speakers: Tom Bevers (EMCO Chair), Rudi Van Dam (Indicators Subgroup/SPC Chair) and Olivier Bontout (DG EMPL)

The European Social Observatory and the European Trade Union Institute are organising a ‘by invitation only’ workshop which aims at equipping the two research institutes close to the labour movement with both the theoretical and practical aspects of constructing social policy indicators. Both the ETUI and OSE have been working on constructing indicators in the past, but as policy oriented indicators are becoming ever more important in European policy making - notably in in the light of the consultation on the European Pillar of Social Rights - the research teams will exchange views with experts on the matter while acquiring a better knowledge of what data sources are available for the purpose.
