Study on the social dimension of the EU: Recommendations for benchmarking
1 August 2016 - 15 November 2016
Contact: Anette Scoppetta
The study on the "social dimension" of the EU aims at identifying thematic key areas that should be covered by benchmarking processes during the next upward policy convergence in order to strengthen the social dimension of the EU. The study not only suggests potential benchmarking indicators but discusses their pros and cons. This includes considering the pitfalls for benchmarking the “Social Union”. Accompanying measures are suggested that help the EU to benchlearn from their manifold experiences and social systems.
