Religion and the EU's external policies: Increasing engagement

15-12-2017

Since 11 September 2001, the European Union has been increasingly confronted by religious crises in a world in which globalisation is reshaping religious demography. In parallel with similar developments in the Member States and the United States, the EU has developed instruments to give greater consideration to religious trends when addressing human rights concerns and engaging key partner countries. Faith-based organisations are playing a pivotal role in a number of new fields, including climate ...

Since 11 September 2001, the European Union has been increasingly confronted by religious crises in a world in which globalisation is reshaping religious demography. In parallel with similar developments in the Member States and the United States, the EU has developed instruments to give greater consideration to religious trends when addressing human rights concerns and engaging key partner countries. Faith-based organisations are playing a pivotal role in a number of new fields, including climate change, development, and conflict resolution, and the EU is taking them increasingly into account. In addition, religion plays an important role in the internal and external policies of some key EU partners, as this study shows in annexes. That is why this field is slowly emerging as a new dimension in the EU's external policies. The annexes in this paper, concerning individual countries, were drafted by Naja Bentzen, Gisela Grieger, Beatrix Immenkamp, Elena Lazarou, Velina Lilyanova, Martin Russell, Alexandra Friede and Jessica Park.

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission impact assessment (IA) accompanying the above proposal, submitted on 26 April 2017 and referred to Parliament’s Committee on Employment and Social Affairs. The proposal is a follow-up to the withdrawal of the Commission's proposal to revise Council Directive 92/85/EEC (the Maternity Leave Directive). After the withdrawal, the Commission announced its intention to prepare a new initiative with a broader approach. The European Parliament has called in its resolutions for a comprehensive proposal from the Commission on work-life balance. In line with the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), the Commission conducted a two-stage consultation with the social partners on work-life balance. There was no agreement among social partners to enter into direct negotiations to conclude an EU level agreement. A roadmap for the new initiative was published in August 2015 and the initiative was included in the Commission's 2017 work programme within the framework of the European Pillar of Social Rights. The Commission's proposal for a directive is part of a package of measures aiming to address women's underrepresentation in employment by improving conditions to reconcile work and family duties. The proposal builds on existing EU legislation (especially Directive 2010/18/EU on parental leave), policies and best practices of the Member States in the area of work-life balance.

19-06-2015

This Implementation Appraisal concentrates on three Directives in the area of information and consultation of workers subject to simplification and/or consolidation according to the CWP 2015: 1) Directive 98/59 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to collective redundancies; 2) Directive 2001/23 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the safeguarding of employees' rights in the event of transfers of undertakings, businesses or parts of undertakings ...

This Implementation Appraisal concentrates on three Directives in the area of information and consultation of workers subject to simplification and/or consolidation according to the CWP 2015: 1) Directive 98/59 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to collective redundancies; 2) Directive 2001/23 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to the safeguarding of employees' rights in the event of transfers of undertakings, businesses or parts of undertakings or businesses and; 3) Directive 2002/14 establishing a general framework for informing and consulting employees in the European Community (the Directives). This briefing is one of a series of 'Implementation Appraisals', produced by the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), on the operation of existing EU legislation in practice. Each such briefing focuses on a specific EU law which is, or will shortly be, subject to an amending proposal from the European Commission, intended to update the current text. 'Implementation Appraisals' aim to provide a succinct overview of material publicly available on the implementation, application and effectiveness of an EU law to date - drawing on available inputs from, inter alia, the EU institutions and advisory committees, national parliaments, and relevant external consultation and outreach exercises.

Public employment services in the EU: Facilitating mobility and employment

23-03-2014

Since the beginning of the financial and economic crisis, high rates of unemployment have been one of the most pressing problems of Member States in the European Union (EU). By matching job-seekers with employment opportunities, including vacancies in other Member States, public employment services (PES) can help to reduce unemployment, increase intra-EU mobility of workers and combat social exclusion. They can contribute to reaching the Europe 2020 employment target and to implementation of the ...

The Impact of New Forms of Labour on Industrial Relations and the Evolution of Labour Law in the European Union

16-06-2008

Globalisation, rapid technological change and increased competition through globalisation have fundamentally changed European labour markets and brought about more dynamic labour markets that have had an impact on the contractual arrangement of labour law and the role of social partners. The aim of the study was to provide an overview of the most characteristic and common types of non-standard contracts in the 27 EU Member States based on existing research, statistics and a thorough labour market ...

Globalisation, rapid technological change and increased competition through globalisation have fundamentally changed European labour markets and brought about more dynamic labour markets that have had an impact on the contractual arrangement of labour law and the role of social partners. The aim of the study was to provide an overview of the most characteristic and common types of non-standard contracts in the 27 EU Member States based on existing research, statistics and a thorough labour market analysis. The impact of rapidly changing developments in the labour market and work organisation on labour law and collective agreements has been addressed as well as the concept of 'Flexicurity' by analysing the impact of non-standard contracts on the growing gap between the so-called “outsiders” and “insiders” of the labour market. Atyplical employment relations were demonstrated by three national case studies focusing on flexibility and security in The Netherlands, self-employment in Poland and fixed-term work in Spain.

Economic Migrant Workers - Compilation of Briefing Notes

14-09-2007

For the discussion of the general framework directive on labour immigration and the proposal for a directive on the conditions of entry and residence of highly skilled workers the EP requested two briefing notes to examine whether migration is an answer to the Member States' ageing problems and to declining working-age population. It is suggested that Member States should focus on high-skilled workers or a mix of them including the low-skilled. Further issues, as whether quotas by economic sector ...

For the discussion of the general framework directive on labour immigration and the proposal for a directive on the conditions of entry and residence of highly skilled workers the EP requested two briefing notes to examine whether migration is an answer to the Member States' ageing problems and to declining working-age population. It is suggested that Member States should focus on high-skilled workers or a mix of them including the low-skilled. Further issues, as whether quotas by economic sector are appropriate and the impact of different integration policies, were looked at. Labour and social policy rights for third country-migrants were examined as well.
