This 7 October 2014, 9.30am to 1.15pm, in the European Parliament Information Office in Ireland, Molesworth Street, Dublin. This Round Table will discuss how to develop an effective minimum income scheme – the basic safety-net welfare payments – and how to build support for this. Specifically, we are seeking your views on a draft ‘road map’ to an adequate and effective minimum income for Ireland which will be distributed to participants before the meeting.
This will build on the late 2013 Report on Minimum Income in Ireland.
This round table is one of a series of meetings in 30 European countries under the European Minimum Income Network (EMIN), a two year project (2013-2014) funded by the European Commission to consider the steps needed to deliver adequate and accessible minimum income schemes in EU Member States.
It will also consider an example from another EU country and a proposed roadmap for a European initiative on minimum income.
