In order to encourage and facilitate the conceptual and policy link between the Pillar and ESU, Euvisions launches today a debate with two introductory contributions by Frank Vandenbroucke and Maurizio Ferrera, followed by two comments by Manos Matsaganis and Anton Hemerijck.
The European Pillar of Social Rights: from promise to delivery – Introduction to the “European Social Union (ESU) public forum debate”
