Delivering on the European Pillar of Social Rights

The European Pillar of Social Rights sets out 20 key principles and rights to support fair and well-functioning labour markets and welfare systems. It is primarily conceived for the euro area but applicable to all EU Member States wishing to be part of it.

Delivering on the principles and rights defined in the European Pillar of Social Rights is a joint responsibility of Member States, EU institutions social partners and other stakeholders.

A consultation on the Pillar ran until 31 December 2016 and was wrapped up at a conference on 23 January 2017. The results of the consultation are presented in a report published on 26 April 2017.
