    Speech - Labour mobility in the EU: challenges and perspectives for a genuine European labour market Choose translations of the previous link 

    24/06/2014

    16/06/2014

    Unless we get the Union back on track of social convergence, the risk of social fragmentation today may well become structural and ultimately put into danger the European project as a whole. We can still forestall that scenario, but it calls for fresh emphasis on the positive role of social policy.
