Reflexion - Securing the Social Union: Next Steps

by Kathy O'Hara

This REFLEXION briefly decribes the social union project and then discusses five specific issues that the project focused on.   The issues include the definition of the social union, the purpose, values and principles of the social union, measuring outcomes of the social union, new institutions for the social union, and citizen engagement in the social union.  The paper concludes with some specific proposals that First Ministers might consider to demonstrate their continuing commitment to securing the social union.
