The European Pillar of Social Rights: Ambiguities, Possibilities, Implementation, is a conference organised on 5 October by the Amsterdam Centre for European Studies (ACES), in cooperation with the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG) and the Amsterdams Instituut voor ArbeidsStudies (AIAS)/Hugo Sinzheimer Instituut (HSI).
This one-day conference will bring together leading EU scholars and policy makers to discuss these questions, focusing on prospects and pathways for realising the potential of the European Pillar of Social Rights. It is aimed at policy practitioners and the general public, as well as scholars and students. The conference will be divided into three main parts:
- The first will address the nature and significance of the Pillar, focusing on its origins, ambiguities, and possibilities.
- The second will deal with pathways and instruments for implementing the Pillar and the relationship between them, with particular attention to legislation, EU funding, and the European Semester.
- The final panel will discuss the legal status and meaning of social rights, together with the prospects for using the Pillar to advance their monitoring and justiciability.
