The European Pillar of Social Rights: going forward together
In March the European Commission published a first outline of the European Pillar of Social Rights and launched a broad public consultation to gather views and feedback.
On 23 January 2017, the Commission will organise a high level conference in Brussels, which will be a unique opportunity to take stock of the consultation and to contribute to shaping the European Pillar of Social Rights.
The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) will be represented by its director Renate Schroeder.
