Europe's job crisis: Protecting decent work, protecting freedom of movement
Speaker:
Lodewijk Asscher
, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Social Affairs and Employment of the Netherlands

Please note there has been a change of location for this event. The event will now be held at St Matthew’s Conference Centre, 20 Great Peter Street, Westminster, SW1P 2BU.

There is a lively debate underway about movement of labour in the EU and its impact on the quality of work. Indeed, some have argued that low wage competition across Europe has created a precarious job situation for the lower skilled and less well educated. Concerns about fairness and a ‘race to the bottom’ have again come to the fore, while politicians search for solutions that can protect both decent work and the freedom of movement.

This event will address the controversial questions on the issues of work, welfare and immigration in an interdependent Europe. What policies should we implement to ensure a high quality of social standards and freedom of movement? How should we address social dumping fears? Policy Network invites you to join Lodewijk Asscher, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Social Affairs and Employment of the Netherlands, in an open debate about these issues.



This event is in partnership with the King's Policy Institute, King's College London.
