Event report - A New European Social Contract: Rethinking Our Welfare State

A New European Social Contract Rethinking Our Welfare State

In cooperation with EuroBabble

The welfare state is a universal concept in Europe. It is a pillar of society, underlying the idea that in Europe no one should be left too far behind and everyone has the right to a basic quality of life. However, that pillar is fracturing under the weight of new pressures and growing imbalances. Is it time for a new, European welfare state model? What should this look like and how do we really get there? Experts and academics are increasingly facing up to this problem, but it is clear that in spite of the common problems, there is not yet one unequivocal solution for the continent, and there may well never be.
