Welfare, Inequality and the Social Dimension in Europe

Workshop

On 17 November 2017, the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, and Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven will be hosting the Social Summit for Fair Jobs and Growth in Gothenburg. In order to contribute to an informed and vigorous public debate on these issues, an open workshop on Welfare, Inequality and the Social Dimension in Europe involving leading international researchers has been organized by CERGU (Centre for European Research at the University of Gothenburg) and SOCAV (Department of Sociology and Work Science), with support as co-organizers from Brännpunkt Europa and CES (Centre for European Studies). The keynote speech will be given by Professor John D. Stephens (Chapel Hill, USA), and is entitled 'Top Income Shares: Political and Economic Determinants.' This will be followed by research presentations and discussions on key issues such as the dualization of labour markets in Europe; inequality and the rise of the Swedish Democrats; work-family reconciliation practices; and trade unions and the social dimension in Europe.

The workshop takes place over two days and is open to all.
