The first annual Vision Europe Summit takes place on 17 and 18 November 2015 in Berlin; it will be an occasion for the one hundred invited experts and politicians to discuss ways towards sustainable welfare states.
On the occasion of the Summit, the consortium of think tanks will present:
– The European Opinion Survey comparing perceptions about welfare states in eight European member states.
– Three policy papers analysing the economic, social and governance aspects of the future of welfare state.
– A conference declaration with concrete policy recommendations on how to ensure the long-term sustainability of national welfare systems.
The Programme of the Summit is available at: www.vision-europe-summit.eu/vision-europe-summit-2015
The Jacques Delors Institute takes part to the Vision Europe project, a consortium of think tanks and foundations collaborating to address some of the most pressing public policy challenges facing Europe. Through research, publications and the summit, the seven partners aim to be a forum for debate and a source of recommendations to improve evidence-based policy-making at both a national and EU level and to foster as appropriate European integration. In 2015 we commonly work on “The Future of the Welfare State”, developing innovative policy recommendations on how to ensure the long-term sustainability of national welfare systems.
