*Europe at a crossroads. Which way to quality jobs and prosperity?*

Date: 24 September – 26 September 2014 Location: Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la Loi 75, Brussels 1040, Belgium

To build a Europe of jobs and sustainable prosperity is the project of fundamental concern within the world of labour. In order to achieve more social cohesion and better jobs, the European Union must be set firmly on the road to a genuine process of reconstruction.

After so much emphasis on the ills perpetrated by austerity policies over the last few years, it is high time now to focus on the core issue of employment and to devise a new way forward that will enable us to tackle the challenges of unemployment, segmentation of labour markets, precarious work, mobility, training, employment of older workers, or psycho-social risks in the workplace. How can we build a true European economic democracy that will strengthen social dialogue and the information, consultation and participation of workers in economic life? What steps can be taken to prevent social dumping?

These crucial issues will be the focus of a major conference held under the joint auspices of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI). Attending the debates will be figures from academia, politics and the trade unions known for their expertise in the area of employment-friendly growth. The discussion topics will be introduced by high-level international speakers. All participants will be invited to contribute to this reconstruction of Europe based on topics such as investment and industrial innovation for a just transition, quality jobs, improved working conditions, and cohesion and European prosperity redefined.

The gathering will also provide an opportunity to sound out the men and women appointed to take up political responsibilities in the new Commission and the new European Parliament, as well as in the member states.
