The Lessons from Europe workshop is the culmination of a two-year series of events hosted by Rutgers Center for European Studies exploring what US citizens and policy-makers can learn from the experiences of European democracies in confronting our common 21st century policy challenges. The workshop will bring together a distinguished group of scholars to explore what lessons the US can draw from European experiences in policy areas including climate change, education, gender and employment, health care, immigration, pensions and transportation.
