A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes and contributions from speakers.
The Committee held a hearing on the situation of women domestic workers and carers in the EU, in view of its forthcoming non-legislative report on the issue. The main topics of debate included: women's working conditions in the EU, namely in the home care sector; women migrants' domestic work and consequences on welfare, career and family relationships; the ILO Domestic Workers Convention. Several experts were heard.
