Social dialogue refers to the discussions, consultations, negotiations and joint actions that take place between the social partners, namely employers and trade unions, on a wide range of social and work-related issues.
At EU level, social dialogue was launched in 1985 by President Delors at Val Duchesse. Since then, social dialogue has been considered crucial to promote competitiveness and fairness and to enhance economic prosperity and social well-being. Developing and fostering social dialogue is an essential element of the European social model. European social dialogue complements and supports national social dialogue and industrial relations.

Este resumen del informe presenta la evolución que han tenido las relaciones laborales desde la última edición del informe, elaborado en 2010. Con la transformación de la crisis financiera en crisis de la deuda soberana, las reformas implementadas por los gobiernos han tenido un enorme impacto en las relaciones entre empresas, sindicatos y autoridades públicas. A pesar de que el diálogo social ayudó a resistir y a superar los primeros efectos de la crisis, su propia duración y profundidad han generado un contexto desfavorable para el diálogo social. No obstante, el resumen pone de relieve la importancia de garantizar la continuidad de un diálogo bien estructurado y subraya el compromiso de la Comisión para seguir apoyándolo y fomentándolo.
