A discussion with Philippe Lamberts, MEP and co-chair The Greens/EFA


In this podcast, Philippe Lamberts, MEP and co-chair of the Greens/EFA, discusses the prospects of a European Social Union. Lamberts highlights the contradictions of the Union between hard-economic policies and soft-social regulations. Trade unions could do a better job, he argues. Meanwhile, The Greens put a lot of social items into their manifesto, starting from a European Directive on Minimum Income.
