Deadline extended to 24 January for providing feedback on consultation for more efficient law-making in social policy

This roadmap explores the possibility of extending the use of qualified majority voting in social policy.

The main objective of the roadmap is to explore possibilities to make the decision-making on social policy more efficient through enhanced use of qualified majority voting. This would enable the EU to keep pace with the rapid economic and societal developments affecting the world of work and social protection systems.

The roadmap would result in a Communication that aims to trigger a debate within the EU institutions and with interested stakeholders on how to make decision-making on social policy more efficient within the opportunities available in the current Treaties.
