At the initiative of the Portuguese EU Presidency, the social partners and the 27 heads of state and government of the European Union met in Porto to relaunch social Europe. Social matters are a national competence, but the Union drafted, at the Göteborg (Sweden) summit in 2017, a first base of social rights, with among other things the rules on posted work. The Covid-19 crisis has revived this need to converge with the help of social minima.
For the first time in history, the EU has put on the table 100 billion euros borrowed jointly to help countries support short-time working, but the European recovery plan of 750 billion euros is not not subject to social criteria.
Our three guests discuss the follow-up to be given to social Europe.
Program prepared by Isabelle Roméro, Mathilde Bénézet, Céline Schmitt and Perrine Desplats.
In partnership with the European Parliament.
