Abstract

Which initiatives should be prioritised in an effective ‘roadmap for delivery’ of the
European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR), based on how well they complement existing EU
instruments? My answer to the question debated in this forum is that a well-conceived notion
of minimum incomes sensu lato (i.e. principle 14 on minimum incomes combined with
principle 6 on adequate minimum wages, principle 12 on social protection and principle 13 on
unemployment benefits) is the right place to start.
