17th ESPAnet 2019 Conference, 5-7 September in Stockholm – Registration is open

The Conference: Social Citizenship, Migration and Conflict – Equality and opportunity in European welfare states

The 17th annual ESPAnet Conference is organized by SOFI and will take place in Stockholm. Migration to and within Europe has challenged us to reconsider how to organize the welfare state. Are European countries prepared to change social policies? Will the responses be adequate and sustainable? Has the landscape of European welfare states changed substantially in terms of social citizenship, equality and opportunity due to the societal and political challenges Europe has faced in the past years?
