- The two sessions of the “Social Welfare Models” Roundtable discussions are part of the “Chile-Union Europe Dialogue” cycle of seminars.
These sessions are organised by the European Union Delegation in Chile and the Chilean Chamber of Deputies in collaboration with the Chilean Agency for International Cooperation-AGCID and the Chilean Library of the National Congress with support from the European Union EUROsociAL+ Programme.
The objective is to reflect on incorporating social rights into the constitution and, within this framework, which type of social welfare model should be included in the constitution and the desirable degree of precision regarding the constitutional rules that establish said rights.
The roundtable discussion is divided into two sessions:
- Wednesday, 7 April 2021 (11:00 Santiago de Chile – 17:00 Brussels). SESSION I: Incorporating social rights into the constitution and guarantee mechanisms. See recording of session I
- Friday 9 April 2021 (11:00 Santiago de Chile – 17:00 Brussels). SESSION II: Reform and innovation of social welfare systems to address social risks and demands in contemporary societies. See recording of session II
