Annotated Agenda of the Eighth Plenary Meeting of the Policy Dialogue on Natural Resource-based Development
L’économie espagnole connaît une forte croissance, mais un grand nombre de personnes risquent d’être laissées pour compte.
We are faced with a paradox: never before in the course of human history have we enjoyed better standards of living, working and health as we do in this present period of globalisation–and still many people turn against globalisation. Why?
The present report on Japan is the seventh report in the Investing in Youth series. In three statistical chapters, the report provides an overview of the labour market situation of young people in Japan, presents a portrait of young people who are not in employment, education or training (the NEETs) and analyses the income situation of young people in Japan. Two policy chapters provide recommendations on how Japan can improve the school-to-work transition of disadvantaged young people, and on how employment, social and training programmes can help the NEETs find their way back into education or work.
Earlier reviews in the same series have looked at youth policies in Brazil (2014), Latvia and Tunisia (2015), Australia, Lithuania and Sweden (2016).

Les récents débats sur les propositions de revenu de base apportent un éclairage utile sur les problèmes que posent de plus en plus les formes traditionnelles de garantie de ressources.

Events, workshops, reports, launches, assessments and seminars concerning the EU Social Protection Systems Programme
The SPSR aims to inform developing countries’ efforts to extend and reform their social protection systems. It takes a holistic view of a country’s social protection system, examining its three pillars – social assistance, social insurance and labour market programmes – within the country’s broader policy context.
The EU-SPS supports low- and middle-income countries in building sustainable and inclusive social protection systems. The research activities include both country- specific analytical work for our 10 partner countries, and thematic research which is intended to support systematization efforts in low and middle income countries more broadly.
Our ability to live longer, healthier and more productive lives is one of our greatest accomplishments. Here in the US, demographers predict that more than half the children born today will live to at least 100. And, according to some, the first person to live to the age of 150 has already been born.
