The OSE is a partner in this new project led by the European Public Sector Union (EPSU). The partnership also includes the School of Education of the University of Nottingham. The project aims at investigating the extent to which public sector trade unions – in particular in the area of education – have been involved (if at all) in the European Semester. The project should provide public sector trade unions with tools to achieve effective involvement in the Semester. The OSE will conduct case studies in France and Italy. OSE researchers involved in this project: Dalila Ghailani, Ramón Peña-Casas, Sebastiano Sabato and Bart Vanhercke.
