Welcome to the November edition of our monthly newsletter!
Countries in Europe and North America are currently dealing with challenges related to globalisation, changes in the world of work, aging populations, and migration. Social protection is increasingly playing a key role in supporting governments to overcome these and other challenges. 

When social protection systems work well, they can also have a stabilising effect on the economy, protecting living standards and providing social security for all. This month the ILO Global Social Protection Week will discuss these issues and provide a roadmap for the future of social protection. The event will take place in Geneva and will also be livestreamed on socialprotection.org.

We hope you enjoy browsing the latest content on social protection in Europe and North America, as well as other highlights of this month.
