Location:
Sigtuna, Hertigv?_gen 7, Sigtunah?jden Hotell & Konferens AB, Sweden
Subject:
This year??s conference will provide an opportunity to reflect on how social security systems are responding to the many challenges they face, including growing inequality, the adverse impacts of poverty in all its dimensions, the equitable treatment of vulnerable groups, the changing nature of work, the aftermath of the financial crisis, and political uncertainty and instability. How are these factors impacting on social security systems and what reforms are being implemented to address them? What role can research play in identifying problems and designing solutions? What can individual countries learn from the experience of others about how to understand the nature of current problems, their underlying causes and the effectiveness of alternative solutions? Is there a need to explore more radical solutions to what appear to be a growing number of complex problems? [gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
