Join the Aston Centre for Europe, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung London and Progressive Britain for a German-British event to discuss Social Policies after the Pandemic and Olaf Scholz’ Respect Agenda.
Wednesday 30th March, 17:00 BST (London time), 18:00 Berlin time
The event will feature outputs by Alison McGovern (MP, Shadow Minister of Employment and Labour MP for Wirral South) and Thorben Albrecht (Policy Director IG Metall, former State Secretary and Federal Business Manager, SPD).
The two speakers will address important questions such as:
. What plans does the new German government on workers’ rights, the welfare state and labour market policy?
. What can pensioners expect from the new German government?
. Which social policies were implemented during the pandemic and how can we build on recent achievements?
. Did Olaf Scholz’ theme of “respect” for workers resonate with voters?
. How will Germany’s “basic income for children” work?
. How can progressive social measures be promoted at a time of tight budgets?
