Upcoming events: EuSocialCit Summer School in Amsterdam


EuSocialCit Summer School What Future for Social Europe?


Between 6 and 9 of June 2023, University of Amsterdam organizes a Summer School that targets PhD students, post-docs and highly motivated early-stage researchers. The Summer School What Future for Social Europe? will give the selected participants an opportunity to investigate and discuss the most salient and recent issues related to the social dimension of the EU integration process. By gathering key experts in the domain of European social and employment policies, public perceptions of the EU, European labour law and European economic governance, the School offers up-to-date insights into the latest developments of EU social policies and social rights. What are the social entitlements European citizens can benefit of as members of the EU? How does the EU reinforce and affect social rights? Why do we need social rights at EU level and how are these rights enforced and exercised in practice? How does EU social policy interact with national policies?

Participants will also present their own research during three conference panels, for which they are encouraged to submit papers. Paper subjects should fall within the general theme of the Summer School, i.e. EU social policies and social rights, and related national developments. Experienced academics from different backgrounds (economics, social and political sciences and law) will be chairing the panels and discussing the papers submitted by the participants.
