First Latin American Social Cohesion Conference

President of Chile's Senate Isabel Allende and President of Chile Michelle BacheletThe First Latin American Social Cohesion Conference was hosted by President of the Chilean Senate, Isabel Allende, and the President of Chile, Michelle Bachelet end January 2015.

This was the first time social cohesion figured as a strategic priority in the European Union-Latin American partnership.

No need saying that the conference was a great success with Allende and Bachelet inspiring the participants from Latin America and Europe – politicians, NGO’s, think tanks and the token scholars – to exchange views and knowledge of why and how to put social cohesion higher on the current reform agenda.

I was happy to participate and present the new European social policy strategy in Europe, namely social investments. Right now EUROsociaL is working on an edited volume with some of the contributions, stay tuned:)
