host an exclusive policy-oriented seminar on “Scenarios for the
European Labor Market” in Bonn, Germany.
In the face of
inconsistent European labor market policies, little learning from each
other on the effectiveness of different policy strategies and severe
impediments to intra-European labor mobility, the alternatives to the
present economic “muddling through” in Europe need to be explored. What
are the perspectives to gain more income security, less income
inequality and more social cohesion? Is the goal of a Europe with full
employment out of reach given the strong negative effects of the
economic and euro crisis?
Kristina Maslauskaite, Kristina Maslauskaite, research fellow at Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute, will participate as a
discussant in a panel discussion featuring Prof. Jeffrey Sachs
(University of Columbia) dedicated to Happiness and (Un)employment.
