European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan: dialogue with citizens and the future of social Europe

The 3 following questions are based on the European Pillar of Social Rights, as proclaimed by the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on 16th November 2017. The Pillar sets out 20 key principles and rights essential for fair and well-functioning labour markets and social protection systems. The 20 principles are the beacon guiding us towards a strong social Europe that is fair, inclusive and full of opportunities. The European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan turns the principles into concrete actions to benefit citizens, proposing headline targets for the EU to reach by 2030. The delivery of the Pillar of Social Rights is a shared responsibility for the EU institutions, national, regional and local authorities, social partners and civil society, so a shared responsibility of all of us.
