Hybridisation of EU Social Policy Instruments ?

The seminar will be chaired by Philippe Pochet, European Trade Union Institute and Jos Berghman, Katholiek Universiteit Leuven.

As the decision-making process concerning the future EU2020 Strategy reaches its climax, legitimate questions are raised with regard to the role of the European Union in social affairs. At the dawn of the Belgian Presidency of the European Union it seems worthwhile to reflect on whether and how individual member States can influence EU-level decision making. The seminar will address these questions and the differentiated effects of several EU policy instruments (classic European law, the European Social Fund and OMC) on three policy fields: employment, social inclusion and gender equality. Presentations draw on the empirical results of the “” research, which was funded by the Belgian federal Science Policy Office and brought together six Belgian, French and Dutch research teams, constituted of political scientists, lawyers and sociologists. Each of the presentations will end with forward-looking policy recommendations.

This event is organised by the European Social Observatory in collaboration with the Committee of the Regions and the Belgian Federal Public Service Social Security.

Bruno Palier, Senior Researcher at the Centre for Political Research at Sciences Po (CEVIPOF) and Ramón Peña-Casas, Senior Researcher at the OSE, in charge of the Publication and Dialogue Centre (PUDIAC) of RECWOWE.
