European social policy

CONFERENCE: SOCIAL POLICY AGENDA 2006-2010: NGOS SET OUT A VISION FOR SOCIAL
POLICY BASED ON FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS, October 20-21st - Social NGOs launched
an alternative vision for European social policy at a conference, which
gathered ministers, members of the European Parliament and high-level
Commission officials. Mary McPhail, EWL Secretary General, chaired the
session on Equality and Non-Discrimination. The Social Policy Agenda
proposals advanced by social NGOs include not only designing better social
policies, but also providing an impetus for making all of the EU's policies
more "social". The Social Platform's proposals focus on the policy areas
where social NGOs have experience, for example they propose ways to
strengthen the open method of coordination. Partnerships between different actors, including trade unions, would help strengthen efforts to include more vulnerable groups in society.
