A fresh look at the future of work in the EU

24-10-2019

Economic and technical changes are redrawing the map of the world of work: new jobs are appearing while others are becoming obsolete, and atypical work patterns are replacing full-time work and open-ended contracts. In addition, work is increasingly being carried out on online platforms connecting buyers and sellers, or by large project teams across borders and time zones. Robotics and digitalisation raise new questions, as machines progressively replace the human workforce for routine tasks, and ...

Economic and technical changes are redrawing the map of the world of work: new jobs are appearing while others are becoming obsolete, and atypical work patterns are replacing full-time work and open-ended contracts. In addition, work is increasingly being carried out on online platforms connecting buyers and sellers, or by large project teams across borders and time zones. Robotics and digitalisation raise new questions, as machines progressively replace the human workforce for routine tasks, and new types of professional and personal skills are required to respond to technological progress. Active labour-market policies are gradually adapting to the changing reality in the world of work. This concerns social security systems, which increasingly face include new, and constantly changing requirements, as well as ethical and practical problems relating to robotics. The EU focuses on protecting workers' rights while ensuring innovation, as the examples of the recently adopted Directive on Transparent and Predictable Working Conditions and the establishment of the new European Labour Authority illustrate. The need for the new digital skills that are essential to successfully master the challenges of the new working environment also continues to grow. This is an update of an earlier Briefing on the Future of work in the EU, from April 2017, PE 599.426.

The Brexit process: Moving to the second phase of negotiations

20-12-2017

The first phase of Brexit talks between the EU and UK negotiating teams needed six rounds of discussion over seven months. Finally, on Friday 8 December, an agreement in principle on the three priority issues – citizens’ rights, a financial settlement and Northern Ireland – was reached. The European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker, and the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, endorsed a joint report setting out a common understanding on the future withdrawal agreement. Whilst a number of specific ...

The first phase of Brexit talks between the EU and UK negotiating teams needed six rounds of discussion over seven months. Finally, on Friday 8 December, an agreement in principle on the three priority issues – citizens’ rights, a financial settlement and Northern Ireland – was reached. The European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker, and the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, endorsed a joint report setting out a common understanding on the future withdrawal agreement. Whilst a number of specific aspects are still under discussion, the European Council decided on 15 December that 'sufficient progress' had been achieved on the first-phase priority issues, and that negotiations could move on to the second phase – on transitional arrangements and the future EU-UK relationship – provided the commitments from the joint report are fully translated into the draft withdrawal agreement. For the transitional period, the European Parliament and the European Council have made clear that all existing Union regulatory, budgetary, supervisory, judiciary and enforcement instruments and structures must apply, including the competence of the Court of Justice of the European Union, but with no UK participation in decision-making, since it would no longer be a member of the EU. Exploratory discussions on the framework for the future relationship will begin only after the adoption by the European Council of additional guidelines in March 2018. The UK has still to clarify its position on the type of trade deal it seeks with the EU.

Statute for Social and Solidarity-based Enterprises

06-12-2017

Social enterprises combine societal goals with entrepreneurial spirit. These organisations focus on achieving wider social, environmental or community objectives. There is currently no specific European legal framework to help social enterprises to benefit from the internal market. Against this background, this European added value assessment identifies the challenges in the existing national legal frameworks regarding social enterprises.

Social enterprises combine societal goals with entrepreneurial spirit. These organisations focus on achieving wider social, environmental or community objectives. There is currently no specific European legal framework to help social enterprises to benefit from the internal market. Against this background, this European added value assessment identifies the challenges in the existing national legal frameworks regarding social enterprises. It argues that action at EU level would generate economic and social added value. Moreover, it outlines potential legislative measures that could be taken at EU level, and that could generate European added value through simplification and a coordinated approach in this area.

Mise en œuvre du socle social

05-12-2017

Dans le cadre du sommet social de Göteborg, le socle européen des droits sociaux («socle social») a été proclamé et signé conjointement par la Commission, le Conseil et le Parlement européen le 17 novembre dernier. Le défi majeur reste néanmoins d’appliquer ce cadre de référence à l’ensemble des citoyens européens. En raison de la compétence limitée de l’Union européenne dans le domaine social, la mise en œuvre de ce socle revient aux États membres, en collaboration avec des partenaires sociaux. ...

Dans le cadre du sommet social de Göteborg, le socle européen des droits sociaux («socle social») a été proclamé et signé conjointement par la Commission, le Conseil et le Parlement européen le 17 novembre dernier. Le défi majeur reste néanmoins d’appliquer ce cadre de référence à l’ensemble des citoyens européens. En raison de la compétence limitée de l’Union européenne dans le domaine social, la mise en œuvre de ce socle revient aux États membres, en collaboration avec des partenaires sociaux. Le Parlement a souligné à plusieurs reprises combien il était important de se concentrer sur trois éléments lors du processus de mise en œuvre: une approche axée sur le cycle de vie, la gouvernance et le financement. La période de session plénière de décembre devrait permettre de recueillir les déclarations de la Commission et du Conseil avant la réunion de décembre du Conseil européen au cours de laquelle les discussions sur la dimension sociale de l’Union, y compris l'éducation, se poursuivront.

Pauvreté, genre et cycle de vie: Figures de la pauvreté dans l’Union européenne

30-11-2017

Près d’une personne sur quatre (23,8 %) est menacée de pauvreté ou d’exclusion sociale dans l’Union européenne en 2015. Les conditions de vie, le degré de précarité et les parcours d’entrée et de sortie de la pauvreté diffèrent en fonction de l’âge et du genre mais également au cours du cycle de vie. Les enfants constituent la population la plus touchée aujourd’hui en Europe tandis que les jeunes âgés entre 18 et 24 ans représentent désormais 10 % des personnes menacées de pauvreté ou d’exclusion ...

Près d’une personne sur quatre (23,8 %) est menacée de pauvreté ou d’exclusion sociale dans l’Union européenne en 2015. Les conditions de vie, le degré de précarité et les parcours d’entrée et de sortie de la pauvreté diffèrent en fonction de l’âge et du genre mais également au cours du cycle de vie. Les enfants constituent la population la plus touchée aujourd’hui en Europe tandis que les jeunes âgés entre 18 et 24 ans représentent désormais 10 % des personnes menacées de pauvreté ou d’exclusion sociale dans l’Union. À cet âge, la différence de genre est mineure alors qu’elle est majeure chez les personnes plus âgées. Le milieu de vie se caractérise désormais de manière très diversifiée en fonction du genre, de la situation familiale et/ou professionnelle. Les femmes, les familles monoparentales, les familles nombreuses ou les travailleurs pauvres sont, à ce moment de leur vie, plus exposés au risque de pauvreté ou d’exclusion sociale. Enfin, désormais, les personnes plus âgées sont, à la fois, les moins touchées par le risque de pauvreté en moyenne et parmi les plus vulnérables lorsque l’âge se décline au féminin.

The revision of the Posting of Workers Directive

12-10-2017

This briefing provides an update on the revision of the posting of workers directive in the European Parliament, and thus a follow up to the June 2016 study prepared for the EMPL Committee ‘Posting of Workers Directive - current situation and challenges’, the May 2016 EPRS appraisal of the Commission Impact Assessment ‘Revision of the Posting of Workers Directive’, and the March 2017 EPRS briefing ‘Posting of Workers Directive’.

Reflection paper on the social dimension of the EU

07-06-2017

The paper on the EU's social dimension, the first of five papers within the white paper process, is the European Commission's contribution to a debate among the leaders of the 27 Member States (other than the UK), EU institutions, social partners and citizens on two major issues in the social and employment fields: the main challenges that Member States are facing and the added value of the various EU instruments available to tackle them. By the end of the process the EU should have a clear mandate ...

The paper on the EU's social dimension, the first of five papers within the white paper process, is the European Commission's contribution to a debate among the leaders of the 27 Member States (other than the UK), EU institutions, social partners and citizens on two major issues in the social and employment fields: the main challenges that Member States are facing and the added value of the various EU instruments available to tackle them. By the end of the process the EU should have a clear mandate from the Member States on the areas it should be tackling and on the extent of their commitment to working together. The results should feed into a document setting out practical measures for moving ahead, in time for the December 2017 European Council. The concepts 'social dimension' and 'social Europe' are interpreted in diverse ways across the EU and most of the competence developed over the past 60 years to implement policies remains with the Member States. In this context the Commission is proposing three alternative scenarios: an exclusive focus on the free movement of workers, development of a multispeed Europe, and genuine deepening of economic and monetary union across the EU-27. The successful implementation of the European pillar of social rights and related initiatives will depend a great deal on the outcome of this reflection process. The European Parliament has put forward several ideas on how to strengthen the social dimension of the European project, including by linking economic and social governance more closely, and increasing budgetary capacity so as to move towards upward convergence. This briefing is one in a series on the European Commission's reflection papers following up the March 2017 White Paper on the future of Europe.
