Kickstart social Europe

27.06.2012

Beyond austerity

The EU is currently battling with the most severe crisis in its recent history. The social consequences for European citizens are dramatic. The European Union has put in place a series of initiatives to try to curb public deficits, commonly referred to as austerity measures. The solutions currently proposed - a policy mix of spending cuts, raising taxes and structural reforms - are exacerbating the crisis. What will the social consequences be if Europe continues down this path? On the eve of the June European Summit, the Greens/EFA Group will propose an alternative to austerity - a proposal on how to create prosperity and jobs without hitting on people most at risk. Join us for a lively discussion with European Commissioners Olli Rehn (Economic and Monetary Affairs and the Euro), László Andor (Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion) and several other high-level speakers.
