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.

La presente sintesi analizza come le relazioni industriali si sono evolute dall'ultima edizione del 2010. La crisi finanziaria si è trasformata in una crisi del debito sovrano e le riforme dei governi hanno esercitato un'influenza significativa sulle relazioni tra datori di lavoro, sindacati e autorità pubbliche. Mentre il dialogo sociale si è dimostrato un fattore determinante per superare i primi effetti della crisi, la durata e l'intensità di quest'ultima hanno reso il contesto per il dialogo sociale molto sfavorevole. La sintesi sottolinea tuttavia l'importanza di proseguire un dialogo ben strutturato e l'impegno della Commissione per sostenerlo e portarlo avanti.
