Europe’s economy is growing, unemployment is falling but Europeans still state social issues as the most important challenge for the EU. In their report on social imbalances Philipp Ständer and Sylvia Schmidt ask: “How are you doing, Europe?”. The study looks at six social challenges of EU-wide relevance and provides a multi-faceted insight on the day-to-day reality of living and working conditions in the EU.
Sylvia Schmidt is Project Manager at the Bertelsmann Foundation, she formally worked for the German Institute for International and Security Affairs.
Philipp Ständer is Advisor at the Federals Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, he formally worked for the Jacques Delors Centre.
