Question for written answer E-000590-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Louis Michel (ALDE)

 Subject:  Social dimension of the EU
 Answer in writing 

The social dimension of the EU is an essential means of securing the support of EU citizens and goes hand in hand with the economic dimension. Although the Member States have transferred to the EU powers in only a small number of social policy areas, progress has been made on some matters, such as the right to live and seek medical care in another Member State and to be have a majority of medical expenses reimbursed, the mutual recognition of qualifications, etc. More needs to be done, however.

What has become of the initiative launched by the Commission in 2013, which focuses on investing in people throughout their lives and aims to introduce measures to stimulate ‘social investment’ in the Member States?

Will the Commission build on the Juncker plan for ‘investment in human capital’?
