The continued fragile security situation in Eastern Europe and the resurgence of Russian power politics prompts the Subcommittee on Security and Defence to examine, also in the context of the upcoming Russian-Belorussian military exercise "Zapad 2017" to take place in Belorussia in mid-September and close to the EU's external borders, various angles of the ongoing development in the post-Soviet space, which impact on regional stability and beyond.
This workshop, organised by the Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM), will discuss the European Commission's proposal "European Pillar of Social Rights".
