Social rights

In view of the formidable challenges ahead related to recovery from the Covid-19 crisis and to the green and digital transitions, the ETUI asked the OSE, following a competitive tender, to reflect on how the EU social governance toolbox could be further strengthened.

The OSE is a partner in a new Horizon2020 European research project named ‘Working, Yet Poor’ (WorkYP). The project (2020- 2023) is being coordinated by the University of Luxembourg and involves eight European universities as well as three ‘social rights institutions’, including the OSE and the European Anti-poverty network (EAPN). The consortium explores the drivers of the recurrent phenomenon of in-work poverty (IWP) in the EU in the light of social rights of EU workers and citizens, notably those proclaimed in the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR).
