Coping with the crisis
The aftermath of global financial and economic crisis continues to affect economies and people in most countries. While the recession seems to have ended, the impact on the labour market looks destined to persist for several more years. Nevertheless, social security systems have responded effectively to the test by softening the impact of the crisis. The challenge for social security now is to continue to cope with the social fall-out.
The ISSA is proactively working through its members to enable social security institutions and policy-makers to analyse the impact of the financial and economic crisis, develop strategies that can alleviate its negative social and economic effects and share measures adopted and lessons learned.
