-
Hauptschule
Breakout / World Café
english language

Supported by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber
EU Member States have very different traditions of involving social partners in the policy-making process. Especially in times of fast economic and social change, a balance of interests is necessary to ensure the successful implementation of ambitious reform programs and to gain public support. What is/could be the role and involvement of national and European social partners in the changing economic and institutional environment? What could an efficient and sustainable social partnership look like? And what kind of contribution to finding solutions for current economic and social challenges is expected from the social partners at the EU level?
