Conference: Identification of best practices within the Norwegian Social Inclusion Model
In the aftermath of the economic crisis Greece has introduced several welfare reforms, but the country still aims at improving the effectiveness, efficiency and fairness of its welfare state further. In this process, Greece has been inspired by some of the features of the Norwegian social welfare model.
This conference aims to identify best practices from the three workshops that have been conducted during the project. Given the current economic situation in Greece there is a need for creative approaches to develop policies that help alleviate poverty and prevent the social exclusion of vulnerable groups.
The study is prepared by the Norwegian Research Institution FAFO and is funded partly by the Norwegian Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (90% of the study) and partly by EEA Grants' national bilateral fund in Greece. Read more about the project findings in the report.
Speakers will touch upon the two countries' system of government, labour market inclusion and social security system.
