Since its inception, the European Semester has attracted interest in its effects on the EU’s social outcomes. Nevertheless, the Semester lacks a framework to monitor socio-economic inequalities within member states.
Dr Lorenza Antonucci and Dr Francesco Corti propose a new framework to address the current Semester's limitations by:
1) considering the rising socio-economic insecurity of the European lower-middle classes;
2) connecting the social and economic aspects of the Semester;
3) exploiting the redistributive effects of taxation. In their study, Inequalities in the European Semester, they develop a set of 9 recommendations for a new Semester to deeply tackle inequalities.
Join us for the presentation of the study, co-organised by FEPS, SOLIDAR, Kalevi Sorsa Foundation, Fondazione Pietro Nenni and Progresiva. With academics, policymakers and civil society representatives we will discuss how to go forward at both the national and European level. The full programme will follow soon.
