Employment and Social Issues

image009Life in Europe continues to be formed by financial, economic, social, and employment crises. These realities affect many people and households in Europe, including the people who make up CEC Member Churches.

CEC monitors European policies meant to overcome these crises. We also reflect on how our experience and theological traditions can contribute to a socially inclusive and sustainable European policy. Most CEC work in this area is carried out through the Church Action on Labour and Life (CALL) Network. For more information, please visit the CALL webpage. We also cooperate with ecumenical partners, including Eurodiaconia.

For more information on our work in this area, please email Rev. Frank-Dieter Fischbach.
