Contemporary history of Europe

Reinforcing the social dimension of Europe

On 20 January 2020, the inauguration of EDIC University of Luxembourg was followed, at the Maison des Arts et des Etudiants in Esch-Belval, by a public debate – a “Citizens' Dialogue” - with Nicolas Schmit, the EU Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights, moderated by Elena Danescu. Over 350 persons, including many students of the Greater Region, attended the event and took the opportunity to ask questions about youth unemployment, the European youth programme, Brexit, the integration of refugees in the economy, the minimum pay wage, the future measures against the gender pay gap, the workforce of the European Union and the improvement of social rights in Europe.
