A new blog by our President, Dr Laura Polverari, examines the content and promise of the new European Pillar of Social Rights. It argues that, while there are no doubts that the Pillar represents an important opportunity for the strengthening of Social Rights in Europe and that it should be seen in itself as an achievement, there is also a need for a debate on the scope for more significant, systemic and territorialised EU investments in this area, and that the ongoing debates on the post-2020 MFF and Cohesion policy represent an opportunity for such debate. The full text of the blog can be accessed from this link: http://www.cohesify.eu/2017/06/22/european-social-pillar/.
