LLLPlatform participates in 4th Strategic Dialogue Meeting
On 10 December 2015, the Platform participated in the 4th Strategic Dialogue Meeting between the European Commission (DG EMPL) and Civil Society organisations, during which the Commission presented its initiative “Pillar of Social Rights”, currently being shaped. It aims to address the social impact of the crisis. The main challenges are the rapid development of technology and how it affects the labour market, aging population, and inclusion of disadvantage groups like migrants. Representatives of civil society agreed that employment should not be at the core of the Pillar of Social Rights. The focus should be on achieving a dignified life for every citizen and employment is one of the factors towards this goal.
