Unemployment Security Forum

Kela has recognised a need for a forum-based approach to operational development. Unemployment security, i.e., the benefit schemes which provide income security in unemployment, has been identified as a topic with current relevance.

Through collaboration with its partner organisations, Kela seeks to develop its operations and to discuss a range of relevant questions concerning unemployment security. The Unemployment Security Forum is intended to create a broader basis for collaboration and information sharing and to support the operations and development efforts of the participating organisations.

Current term of office: 1 January 2020-31 December 2021
