Addressing the crises: costs, COVID-19, climate, and conflict
The European Union is at a difficult crossroads. As member states attempt to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has brought about new challenges as living costs skyrocket.
National governments and welfare systems face new pressures and require greater support from the EU. In this context, how can the EU strengthen integration and support national governments in tackling the current and emerging crises?
The Foundation for European Progressive Studies, Masarykova Demokratická Akademie, and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung organised this year’s Call to Europe Conference in Prague. We brought together current and former progressive policymakers, academic experts, and activists to discuss not only the current state of play for Social Europe but also how European social and economic policy should be shaped moving forward so that all Europeans can have a decent quality of life.
A panel of experts debated how to address the crisis of living costs we currently face. The discussion was followed by a keynote speech from EU Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights, Nicolas Schmit.
FEPS member foundations were invited to join a meeting prior to the public conference, during which a discussion on social democracy in central and Eastern Europe took place. This was then followed by a closed-door roundtable on the energy crisis in the afternoon.
During the event, László Andor, FEPS Secretary General, presented his latest work ‘Europe’s social integration’. This book examines the four factors that have challenged the fate of welfare states and social standards in Europe: neoliberal globalisation, monetary union, Eastern enlargement and digitalisation.
