Brussels Conference on Social Protection after 2015

Isabel Ortiz, Director Social Protection of the ILO and UNRISD Senior Research Fellow Magdalena Sepúlveda participated in Post-2015: Social Protection for All, a conference hosted by the Belgium’s Federal Public Service in Brussels on 27 April. The meeting identified ways to ensure that a rights-based approach to social protection is an integral part of the post-2015 agenda. Ortiz and Sepúlveda appeared on an expert panel where the discussion focused on links between social protection and post-2015 goals such as combating poverty and inequality, and inclusive economic growth, with a target of universal social protection by 2030.
