An efficient social policy is based on solidarity and the protection of human rights. Social assistance is necessary where people are not able to meet their basic needs by their own efforts. 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
  1. the role of the European Union,
  2. the roles of the state, the local authorities and the service providers;
  3. the groups of users;
  4. the relationship between money transfer and service provision; and
  5. 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. L'aide sociale est nécessaire quand les gens ne sont pas en mesure de satisfaire leurs besoins fondamentaux par leurs propres efforts. La responsabilité publique et le financement solidaire pour des services sociaux et de santé modernes et efficaces sont des caractéristiques particulières du modèle social européen.

Le but de cette audition est d'établir des principes de responsabilité publique pour les systèmes de prestations sociales efficaces et fiables en Europe. L'audition portera sur les conditions politiques et juridiques nécessaires au niveau de l'UE pour maintenir et développer des systèmes efficaces de prestations sociales.
 
Elle se penchera en particulier sur
  1. le rôle de l'Union européenne;
  2. les rôles de l'Etat, des autorités locales et des prestataires de services;
  3. les groupes d'utilisateurs;
  4. la relation entre le transfert d'argent et la fourniture de services et
  5. l'accessibilité et la qualité des services.
Invités à discuter de ces sujets sont la Commission européenne, le Comité de Protection Sociale, les partenaires sociaux européens, représentants des services sociaux, les organisations sociales et les chercheurs.
 
Où : CESE - Rue Belliard, 99 - Salle JDE 62
Quand : le 22 Juin 2015, 9h30-13h00
