A forum for the diversity of social security

Our members benefit from a unique platform hosting evidence-based, interdisciplinary and cross-cutting discussions on the challenges facedby social security systems.
GVG is open to all organisations and persons who play an active part in social security. Its members are represented in the highest decision-making body, the Members’ Assembly.

The Members’ Assembly is responsible for electing the Steering Committee, which in turn elects an Executive Committee. Members of this Committee are representatives of the institutions that constitute GVG, or leading experts in social security issues.

The Managing Directors of GVG guide and coordinate the operating activities of GVG. In the offices of GVG, highly qualified project managers work in teams covering the fields of social protection and employment policy. These different teams are responsible for implementing the national and international activities in their respective field of expertise.
