Employment policy beyond the crisis, European Commission, Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion

The Social Europe guide is a bi-annual publication aimed at providing an interested but not necessarily specialised audience with a concise overview of specific areas of EU policy in the field of employment, social affairs and inclusion. It illustrates the key issues and challenges, explains policy actions and instruments at EU level and provides examples of best practices from EU Member States. It also presents views on the subject from the Council Presidency and the European Parliament. Volume 8 looks at EU employment policy, underpinned by the European Employment Strategy. It highlights major initiatives to tackle the disruptive effects of the economic crisis, notable the Europe 2020 Strategy and the European Semester. The guide also covers new initiatives to tackle EU unemployment or social disparities, such as the Employment Package, Youth Employment Package, and the scoreboard of key employment and social indicators. There is also a focus on promoting labour mobility, enhancing dialogue with social partners, and plans to complete Europe's monetary union by introducing a common fiscal capacity.--, EU Bookshop
