  Présentation-débat - 11/12/18

Bilan social de l'Union européenne 2018
 

Pour marquer la publication de la 19ème édition de cet ouvrage-clé, l'OSE et l'ETUI (Institut syndical européen) organisent une présentation-débat.
 
Un aspect dominant de cet examen annuel est la manière dont le socle européen des droits sociaux a influencé l’élaboration des politiques de l’Union européenne avant même son approbation politique. Le livre examine l’impact de la nouvelle « approche d’investissement social fondée sur les droits » du socle, tout en demandant si celui-ci pourrait faciliter une « Union européenne sociale » à part entière. Mais pourra-t-il également orienter les politiques macroéconomiques de l’UE ? Cette édition traite de la protection sociale des travailleurs indépendants, des progrès récents en matière de santé au travail et de l’impact de la transition numérique sur la qualité de l’emploi. Les politiques éco-sociales doivent être inscrites à l'ordre du jour de toute urgence - mais aux dépens de qui ?

  Nouveau ETUI Policy Brief

The ‘generosity’ of pensions for workers in hard jobs: in need of a nuanced debate
Slavina Spasova and Bart Vanhercke
 
This policy brief examines issues surrounding recent cuts in pensions provision for workers in arduous and hazardous jobs (WAHJ). Such workers have historically enjoyed better provision because of the strong possibility of them having to take early retirement, but historic arrangements are now under threat. The policy brief presents some data on the working conditions and pensions patterns of WAHJ and provides some policy suggestions for their trade union representatives.

Social investment in long-term care – 30/10/2018 – Brussels

How can the EU deliver affordable long-term care of good quality as its working-age population shrinks and the share of those of retirement age expands? The SPRINT consortium is inviting policy makers, researchers, care providers and other key stakeholders to discuss the challenges associated with the application of the concept of social investment to the provision and resourcing of long-term care.


 

 
  Roundtable discussion

Nordic social partners and the European Semester: what kind of engagement and why (not)?
 
Researchers, national and European stakeholders and policymakers will identify the opportunities that arise for national social partners from ‘having a say’ in the European Semester. In the framework of the Commission-funded INVOTUNES project involving eight EU Member States, leading scholars will shed light on the recent developments in Sweden and Finland. They will identify both risks and opportunities for social partners’ involvement in labour market, wage setting as well as social protection and social inclusion policies within the Semester.

Challenges in long-term care in Europe. A study of national policies
  
This report describes the national long-term care provisions in 35 European countries, with a focus on arrangements for the elderly. It analyses the four main challenges common to all countries: access and adequacy of long-term care provision, quality of formal home care as well as residential services, employment of informal carers and financial sustainability of national systems. All countries covered will continue to face significant long-term care system challenges: the report makes a series of recommendations to help overcome them.

Implementing the European Pillar of Social Rights: what is needed to guarantee a positive social impact
 
This new study on behalf of the Workers’ Group of the EESC concludes that the Pillar relaunched an ambitious EU ‘Social Agenda’ and has already influenced the 2018 European Semester cycle. However, doubts remain as to whether it can influence EU macro-economic and fiscal policies. National trade unions are doubtful that they will be involved in putting its principles into practice. Effective implementation requires that the Pillar be given adequate financial resources and clearly defined governance tools through an ambitious roadmap.

The European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) asked the OSE to provide a brief overview of measures taken in the Member States to address the work-life balance challenges faced by working parents and carers.

  Joint Centro Einaudi and OSE Working Paper

The Development and Determinants of ‘Occupational Welfare’ in the Recalibration of European Welfare Regimes: A Comparative Perspective
Mapelli, L. (2017)
 
This paper suggests that, overall, occupational welfare is becoming increasingly important in European welfare mixes; however, the quantity and quality of its development depend on a number of field-specific and country-specific variables. The paper concludes that occupational welfare can retain a social policy function, provided that it is handled with care and built upon a solid public underpinning.

The EU’s Youth Guarantee: a broadly accepted reform in need of full implementation
Andor L. and Veselý L. (2018)
  
What is the significance of the EU's Youth Guarantee initiative, and does it qualify as a ’structural reform’? What would it take for the Youth Guarantee to be fully implemented across the EU? This OSE Opinion paper reviews the main lessons learned since the Youth Guarantee's launch in 2013 and makes the case for an increased level of ambition, specifically in the context of the EU's post-2020 budget.
