Child guarantee in Hungary
11 February, 14:00-17:00

One out of four children in Europe lives in poverty or is at risk of poverty and social exclusion. That is why socialists and social democrats in the EU proposed the European Child Guarantee.

This hybrid public conference will look at the implementation of the Child Guarantee in Hungary. It is the first of a series of events.

Organised by FEPS, the PES Group in the European Committee of the Regions and the Szociális Demokráciáért Intézet (Institute for Social Democracy).
European Health Union – not wishful thinking but a reflection of Europeans’ real concerns
21 February, 14:00 – 15:30

Health is a member states competence and statistics show there is a wide gap between the health systems and expenditures of different EU. But the majority of Europeans insist that healthcare should be included in the list of most important decisions (Eurobarometer). The time has come to make European health a priority!

Join this event by FEPS and the European Institute of Health and Sustainable Development, in partnership with Euractiv, where participants will address proposals on how to create a European Health Union and establish it in the Treaty on European Union.

FEPS Series on EU-Russia relations

Tensions between Russia and the EU have been mounting, and mutual mistrust has narrowed the already limited space for cooperation.

FEPS and its partners have kept an analytical eye on EU-Russia relations since 2020 with the purpose to enable progressives to find alternative pathways to engage in this relationship.

Discover the new series of analyses resulting from the research project ‘ReSetting the EU’s agenda towards Russia’.

Power at work is increasingly embedded in the way data is collected and used via algorithm systems. While this could support the quality of work, at present it seems to mainly facilitate expanding surveillance and control of the workforce.

This study offers a
set of recommendations on how to fully implement and make better use of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) at the workplace. It also pays attention to workers’ collective rights across the EU, as well as the potential of upcoming EU legislation on data governance and algorithmic systems(‘AI’).

by Stefan Collignon
Europe would never again be the same. The Maastricht Treaty was a watershed event that transformed the lives for 500 million people. Signed thirty years ago, on 7 February 1992, by 12 member states, it opened the doors for enlarging the Union to 27 countries. It has created more economic stability, but left the system of governance incomplete. Read more
