Response to COVID-19 in Social Security
Since the annual conference of the European Institute of Social Security could take place as planned in 2020 due to several circumstances, the conference was cancelled for 2020 and moved to 2021.
Instead of the annual conference, the EISS organized an online activity on COVID-19 on 25 September 2020. The impact of the current crisis is huge, and has caused governments to intervene in many areas, not least in social security. Which measures have been taken throughout Europe? Can we identify common trends and challenges throughout the continent?
The EISS online event focused on several national testimonies and measures taken nationally through pre-recorded presentations of country reports that were made available beforehand. During the event, the focus was on discussions on these presentations as well as comparative cross-country presentations.
