Dear Colleagues,

You are warmly welcomed to the website of the Yearly Conference of the European Institute of Social Security (EISS), organised in cooperation with the Faculty of Law of the Ljubljana University, which will be held

 in Ljubljana on the 29th and 30th of September 2011.

 The intention of the conference is to tackle the ever interesting and challenging topic of

“Changing Social Security”.

It goes without saying, that the duty of the legislature, emanating from the state being governed by the rule of law principle, is to modify social security law with regular (although not arbitrary and not too often) legislative changes to reflect the ever changing social relations. Social security should be a faithful companion with appropriate social security benefits that should be in place when social risks materialise. Protection levels that aim at guaranteeing the acquired stand of living have to be the objective. Poverty and social exclusion have to be prevented or alleviated to enable the free development of individuals and society as a whole.

Please find more information on the conference, its program, registration procedure, conference venue, flight and accommodation arrangements, places in Ljubljana and Slovenia worth exploring, and our contact details in the column on your left.

We sincerely hope you will be able and willing to join us in the beautiful capital of Slovenia in September, and contribute to the most interesting discussions. We are indeed looking forward to welcome you in Ljubljana soon.

Yours sincerely,


                                                  The organisational committee
