Lecture about the comprehensive social security reform

No registration needed.

The comprehensive social security reform included in the Government Programme will begin in spring 2020. A parliamentary committee will be set up to prepare the reform and its term of office will run until spring 2027.

Pasi Moisio, chair of the committee, believes in the benefits of a long-term comitology procedure: "Complicated systems need to be reformed gradually, understanding the long-term impacts. During our research-based comitology work, we will be able to find solutions by familiarising ourselves with the facts, highlighting different perspectives and discussing conflicts in a constructive manner. The committee's first task is to find a sufficient consensus on the current state of social security and on the problems to be solved. On that basis, a roadmap will be drawn up for the social security reform.”

Pasi Moisio is a Research Professor in social policy at the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare.
