About this initiative


The Communication explores how to make decision-making on social policy more efficient, using the options offered by the EU Treaties. More use of qualified majority voting on social policy would enable the EU to keep pace with economic and social developments arising from globalisation, the digital revolution and new forms of work. The communication is designed to trigger a debate and to contribute to the Sibiu Summit on 9 May 2019, which has been convened with a view to working out guidelines for the EU's future up to 2025.
