Regardless of whether other EU member states will actually allow Britain to bring these powers back home, policymakers should ask whether this process is desirable. Alternatively, should we leave the current settlement as it is or are new approaches necessary to ensure that social policy maximises employment across the EU.

To commence this debate, IPPR is very pleased to welcome L?szl? Andor, European commissioner for employment, social affairs and inclusion, who will deliver a keynote speech on the topic 'Living standards in Europe and the importance of social investment'.

Frances O'Grady, general secretary of the Trades Union Congress and Neil Carberry of CBI will respond.

To guarantee a place please RSVP to [email protected] by Friday 15 February.
