The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) and its Freelance Expert Group (FREG) in cooperation with the Deutscher Journalisten-Verband (DJV) are organising another webinar, this time on social security for freelance journalists in Europe, a theme ever more important in times of increasing flexibility and decreasing social security.

Ivan Declercq, freelance advisor of the Flemish journalist association (VVJ) will give some examples from European countries including Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Norway. The special system in Germany of the so-called Künstlersozialkasse (KSK) (artists’ social insurance) will be highlighted among other systems as best practice. Kirstine Baloti, consultant on freelance issues of the Danish Union of Journalists will outline what kind of social protection can be negotiated for freelances and exists for self-employed journalists in Denmark.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
