Public responsibility and solidarity-based financing for modern and effective social and healthcare services are particular features of the European social model.
The purpose of this hearing is to set out principles for public responsibility for effective and reliable welfare provision systems in Europe. The hearing will look at the political and legal conditions needed at EU level in order to maintain and develop effective social benefit systems.It will, in particular, look into
- the role of the European Union,
- the roles of the state, the local authorities and the service providers;
- the groups of users;
- the relationship between money transfer and service provision; and
- the accessibility and quality of services.Invited to discuss these topics are the European Commission, the Social Protection Committee, the European social partners, representatives of welfare and social organisations and researchers.
Where: EESC – Rue Belliard, 99 – room JDE 62
When: 22 June 2015, 9.30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Une politique sociale compétente repose sur la solidarité et la protection des droits de l'homme.

Harry Christophers' ensemble takes a trip back to 16th-century Seville, one of the biggest, richest and most cosmopolitan cities on earth. It was during this Spanish 'golden age' where arts and culture flourished. Two influential composers of this period were Guerrero and Lobo, master and disciple.
A much-anticipated return from the acclaimed Flemish composer and pianist Wim Mertens opens this year's LIFEM festival, which explores the music of Minimalist pianist-composers.

A small, stimuating festival of talks and discussions to exercise your brain on an autumn weekend. Trollope, Thatcher, inequality, classics, the best essay writers, overrated authors, our fascination with animals... These are just some of the topics the best thinkers and speakers in the field will be discussing over the weekend. Join in!
The Piano Trios and String Quartets of Michael Nyman, David Lang's Pulitzer award-winning The Little Match Girl Passion, Arvo Pärt's St John Passion from the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, Gavin Bryars' iconic Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet and Terry Riley's In C from Aurora are some of the highlights as the series continues.
