Organised by KU Leuven - HIVA Research Institute for Work and Society for and in collaboration with the European Centre for Workers' Questions EZA, with the financial support of the European Commission.
The free movement of workers and citizens between Member States is becoming more and more important and has major implications for the use of social security systems, confronting national competent institutions, stakeholders, policy makers and citizens with increasing questions about their coverage, entitlements, not use and misuse. At the margin of the national systems of social protection, it reveals the wealth but also the complexity and sometimes the contradictions.
The seminar will review available statistical data of migrant and mobile citizens; their use and knowledge of social security rights, especially healthcare and LTC; and the phenomenon of ‘social dumping' and cross-border social fraud. By sharing some of the latest insights and experiences, we want to contribute to the fact that it becomes part of the daily reality. But also becomes part of an awareness that we are indeed part of a daily reality of a social Europe.
Working language of the seminar is English. Simultaneous translation is provided in Dutch and French.
