How to Tackle Rising Inequalities in Europe?

[English] [français]

A Citizen’s Controversy with:

Ana-Llena Nozal, Economist, OECD; and,

Wojtek Kalinowski, Co-Director, Veblen Institute for Economic Reform.

The Controversy will be moderated by Pierre Defraigne, Executive Director, Madariaga - College of Europe Foundation.

After decades of unequal growth, the European response to the crisis – focused only on budgetary discipline and enhancing competitiveness – is likely to increase inequalities even more. Is it possible to get out of the paradigm of a trade-off between competitiveness and social justice? How can the EU make itself relevant and what kind of social dimension should be added to the economic governance architecture? What role should be played by tax redistribution and which role by structural policies of social inclusion?

On Thursday 14 June 2012, between 13:00 and 14:30 at the Madariaga - College of Europe Foundation, Avenue de la Joyeuse Entrée 14, B-1040 Brussels.
