On behalf of the WorkYP Project, I cordially invite you to the forthcoming International Conference on “In-Work Poverty in Europe”, which will be held in Brussels next 26th January 2023 from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm in hybrid mode.

This will be the final conference of the WorkYP Project, funded by the Horizon2020 scheme for the years 2020-2023, focused on the increasing social trend of working people at risk or below the poverty line.

The Conference will kick-off with two invited keynotes – Nicolas Schmit (EU Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights) and Olivier De Schutter (UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights). It will then present the final results of the WorkYP project, aiming at reconceptualising in-work poverty and EU social citizenship, focusing on the most vulnerable clusters of workers in the labour market, and reflecting on the role of regulation and social policy both at EU and at national level. The conference will close with a roundtable hosting major European stakeholders.
