The European Commission-funded programme for cooperation between the EU and Latin America on social and employment policies ‘EUROsociAL+’ asked the OSE to conduct a study on the socio-ecological dimension of the EU recovery from the Covid-19 crisis. The objective of this research is twofold. First, to identify and discuss relevant initiatives taken at the EU level aimed at linking and making environmental and social objectives compatible in the recovery from the Covid-19 crisis. These include the Recovery and Resilience Facility and the most relevant EU policy documents/strategies on which the latter relies (including the European Green Deal and the European Pillar of Social Rights). Second, to provide a preliminary assessment of the socio-ecological dimension of the EU recovery from the Covid-19 crisis, including its potential and limitations.
OSE researchers involved in this project: Sebastiano Sabato (lead researcher), Matteo Mandelli and Bart Vanhercke.
