DG EMPL’s new publication: ‘Investing in Social Europe’
The DG Empl released a new publication, “Investing in Social Europe”. The worsening social situation and problems of sustainability of social protection requires action across Europe. The Commission’s Social Investment Package guides Member States to modernize their welfare systems by “preparing” people to confront life’s risks, thus reducing the need to ‘repair’ the consequences. Harnessing policy expertise, the reform process, shared ownership with stakeholders and EU funds towards social investment will ensure full implementation.
