Social investment is an approach that gives a new orientation to social protection, aiming to better equip individuals with the skills they will need to cope with evolving social needs throughout the course of their lives. This approach emphasizes the need to intervene at an early stade, during childhood in particular, to anticipate and prevent social risks in a transformed society where the traditional functions of the Welfare State are changing and revealing their limitations.

In this framework, the National Fund of Child Benefit (CNAF), Directorate General of Social Cohesion (Ministry of Social Affairs, Health and Women Rights), Foundation of Apprentis d'Auteuil, France Stratégie and LIEPP decided to lead together the seminar "Social Investment : which strategy for France?". This seminar aims to elaborate the relevance and feasibility of such a strategy in France through comparisons - with other countries in different thematic sessions.
