The 18th edition of Social policy in the European Union: state of play reports on recent European Union (EU) and national social policymaking, with contributions from leading scholars pointing at attempts to move out of the multiple crises hitting the European Union since 2008. The formidable challenges confronting the EU in 2016 have put its survival at risk. Despite some progress, the EU’s socio-economic governance is still not satisfactorily addressing macroeconomic, fiscal and social challenges in a balanced way.
