The 2022 edition of the joint ETUI-OSE 'Bilan social' is out now .
A health crisis, an economic and financial crisis and a climate crisis are unfolding in parallel, while full-scale war is back in Europe. And yet, important progress has been made inter alia on minimum wages, occupational health and safety, the working conditions of people working through platforms, and gender equality. Furthermore, social investment and a ‘just’ green transition have (somehow) been promoted under the umbrella of the EU’s recovery. A European health space is in the making, and the idea of an EU Social Imbalances Procedure is on the table. Could the EUs ‘open strategic autonomy’ paradigm provide a window of opportunity to sustain the EU’s social ambitions?
