Transatlantic discussions about labour have a long history and continue to be highly topical. A 1996 memorandum of understanding signed by U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich and EU Commissioner Pádraig Flynn created a transatlantic Working Group on Employment and Labor-Related Issues to address investments in human capital, active labor market policies, developments in the wider international context, and more. Twenty-six years later these issues are still pertinent, as evidenced by the inaugural meeting of the new US-EU Trade and Labour Dialogue that took place in September 2022. But in an ever-changing labour market landscape, including digitalisation, rapid technological advances and the emergence of new forms of work relations, they take on new meaning and urgency. Please join us on November 16 to revisit the cooperation needed between the United States and the European Union around these key issues as they relate to the future of work at the German Marshall Fund's headquarters in Washington, DC.
Public workshop in Washington, DC.
The event is organised in the frame of the “EU/US Transatlantic expert group on the future of work“. The TEG has been brought together by Bruegel and the German Marshall Fund of the United States with the financial support of the European Union. Its contents are the sole responsibility of Bruegel and the GMF and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Union.
