ImPRovE Mid-term conference: The distributive impact of policies before and during the crisis - Lessons from Europe 2020 - 8 April 2014, Antwerp
the ImPRovE team would like to cordially invite you to attend the ImPRovE Mid-term Conference, 8 April in Antwerp. During the conference, we will discuss fresh state-of-the art research on the distributive impact of policies in the recent past, with a special focus on the countries hardest hit by the crisis, and draw lessons for reaching the Europe 2020 social targets.
Prior to the financial crisis, the Lisbon strategy could be regarded as a qualified success in the field of employment. On the other hand, though, the Lisbon strategy largely failed to deliver on its ambitious promise concerning poverty. From 2008 onwards the overall picture became truly negative. In this conference, we scrutinise the impact of policies on poverty and inequality trends during the Lisbon era and the recent economic crisis and draw lessons for the future. The conference concludes with a debate with Members of European Parliament on how the Europe 2020 targets can be reached.The conference will build on results of the EU funded project ImPRovE. Preceding the conference, two workshops will be organised on social innovation and on reference budgets.
Participation in the conference is free of charge. More information on the programme and the registration form can be found on the conference website.

Doctoral Summer School Flexicurity, Labour Market and Social Dialogue. Changing Employment Marie Curie ITN - 3-6 June 2014, KU Leuven, BelgiumThe world of work is changing. The onset of the financial crisis in 2007-2008 which spread throughout much of Europe, particularly as a sovereign debt crisis from 2010 onwards, is having a profound impact on the labour markets of Member States and the working lives of their residents. These have been varied and contested, from the dismantling of long-established structures of social dialogue and collective bargaining in some states to discourse shifts towards increased uncertainty in labour market in others. In this context, questions of how these developments are being pursued by governments, the role of trade unions, employers, companies and employees in shaping these changes, the extent to which crisis has accelerated the ‘neoliberalisation’ of industrial relations in Member States, and the emergence of anti-austerity social movements in recent years as factors in the ongoing process of union renewal are more pressing than ever.
The Faculty of Social Sciences KU Leuven is proud, as full partner of the ChangingEmployment network, to invite applications for a strictly limited number of PhD students to join the network for the main sessions of the network school. The sessions will be delivered by many of the most eminent academics in the field of employment relations from across Europe, with further contributions from European and supranational actors such as the European Commission, European Trade Union Institute, the International Labour Organization as well as representatives from leading MNCs.Read more.
