    Social Agenda 48 - A European pillar for a social triple A

    What the European Pillar of Social Rights, adopted in April, means in practice: this is what the July issue of Social Agenda is all about. The Pillar serves as a reference framework for European Commission proposals on work-life balance and working time. Its spirit also inspires the new Commission proposal on social security coordination, to make free movement of workers within the EU fairer and easier, as well as the latest health and safety package of measures to increase the impact of EU legislation on the work floor. And the focus is on Spain to help employment and social services there cooperate more effectively, on the ground, in the face of long-term and youth unemployment.

    Social Agenda 47 – European Social Fund - Investing in people since 1957

    The European Social Fund is sixty years old, like the Rome Treaty which created the European Economic Community. This issue of Social Agenda focuses on what it has achieved so far. As the mid-term interview with European Commissioner Marianne Thyssen in this same issue shows, human capital investment is also key to implementing the latest EU-level employment and social policy developments: The New Skills Agenda for Europe, the Youth Guarantee, the customised pathway put in place for the long-term unemployed, the Action Plan for welcoming third-country nationals including asylum-seekers and refugees, the European Semester Recommendations etc. Looking ahead, Social Agenda n°47 also explains how the European Pillar of Social Rights is taking shape.
