Five years of the European Pillar of Social Rights

The ambitious social programme has an important meaning for EZA.

On the 17th November 2022 the European Pillar of Social Rights celebrated its first five years of existance. We were impressed by the overwhelming ambition of this European Pillar of Social Rights. In a second paper for the European Centre of Workers’ Questions EZA we conclude there has been a remarkable continuity between the Commission Juncker that launched the European Pillar of Social Rights and the Commission von der Leyen who putted it into an ‘Action plan’. It is not only a similarity in the overwhelming ambition, but also in the sense of urgency to put the principles into practice. Social Europe is not at myth.  But it needs vigilance of the national stakeholders and voluntarism of the national authorities to put it further in practice.

Discover with us the overwhelming ambition of EZA to have our paper translated it not less than seven other languages. The optimistic message deserves that.
