Eurofound: First findings of the Sixth European Working Conditions Survey
SOLIDAR participated in a high-level conference organised by the Luxembourg Presidency and Eurofound on 23 and 24 November in Luxembourg, where first findings of the Sixth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) were presented and discussed with a wide range of stakeholders. The EWCS is a wide-ranging survey of workers carried out by Eurofound every five years since 1991. The survey interviews employees and self-employed workers about key issues related to their work and employment, such as employment status, physical and psychological risk, time and place of work, skills development etc.
Did you know that every day in Europe, 7 women die from domestic violence?
And 1 out of 3 women has already suffered from male violence?
We are in 2015 and this is simply unacceptable. It is time to say STOP!
SOLIDAR support the PES Women’s message saying: ‘enough is enough - it is time to stop violence against women!’

Samuel Huntington was heavily criticised when he published his book “Clash of civilisations” after 9/11. What we are seeing now is about a clash of cultures, rather than Islam as a religion. In a way it is about our form of civilisation, our form of democracy, which in spite of all its weaknesses and the social injustices it creates, remains the “the worst form of government, except for all the others.” as Winston Churchill defined it once, clashing with a “culture” of hatred and intimidation, of brutality and horror.
