Conference on “National Growth Strategies and Welfare State Reform”
Paris, December 10-11, 2015
Organizers: Anke Hassel, Hertie School of Governance and Bruno Palier, Sciences Po
Different countries or regions of the world have recently attempted to define a “growth strategy”, aimed at stimulating economic growth and job creation, in which social protection plays a more or less pronounced role. At the European level, since the late 1990s, Europe has been seeking to define a growth model for its member states, defined by the slogan of the Lisbon strategy: “make Europe’s economy the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy, capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion“, in which a “renewed” social protection is central. In its recent reformulation, the Europe 2020 strategy, for “smart, sustainable and inclusive” growth, continues to promote welfare state reforms. More recently, the EU competitiveness strategy associates economic policy orientations (austerity, growth through cost-competiveness and export capacities) with social protection “structural” reforms. more
