This page is also available in

To prepare its own-initiative opinion "Emergency measures to support employment and income during the pandemic crisis", the EESC is organising a public hearing on 15 July 2021 am. to gather input from other EU institutions, national authorities, social partners, civil society and experts.

We will debate the following questions:

  • What lessons can be drawn from the implementation of SURE and other emergency measures in recent months?
  • To what extend are SURE and other emergency measures to support unemployment benefit schemes part of the RRP in the short and medium term and which groups have benefited from them?
  • Are there any best practices to be shared and what challenges should be addressed?
