A fresh look at the future of work in the EU

24-10-2019

Economic and technical changes are redrawing the map of the world of work: new jobs are appearing while others are becoming obsolete, and atypical work patterns are replacing full-time work and open-ended contracts. In addition, work is increasingly being carried out on online platforms connecting buyers and sellers, or by large project teams across borders and time zones. Robotics and digitalisation raise new questions, as machines progressively replace the human workforce for routine tasks, and ...

Economic and technical changes are redrawing the map of the world of work: new jobs are appearing while others are becoming obsolete, and atypical work patterns are replacing full-time work and open-ended contracts. In addition, work is increasingly being carried out on online platforms connecting buyers and sellers, or by large project teams across borders and time zones. Robotics and digitalisation raise new questions, as machines progressively replace the human workforce for routine tasks, and new types of professional and personal skills are required to respond to technological progress. Active labour-market policies are gradually adapting to the changing reality in the world of work. This concerns social security systems, which increasingly face include new, and constantly changing requirements, as well as ethical and practical problems relating to robotics. The EU focuses on protecting workers' rights while ensuring innovation, as the examples of the recently adopted Directive on Transparent and Predictable Working Conditions and the establishment of the new European Labour Authority illustrate. The need for the new digital skills that are essential to successfully master the challenges of the new working environment also continues to grow. This is an update of an earlier Briefing on the Future of work in the EU, from April 2017, PE 599.426.

The Brexit process: Moving to the second phase of negotiations

20-12-2017

The first phase of Brexit talks between the EU and UK negotiating teams needed six rounds of discussion over seven months. Finally, on Friday 8 December, an agreement in principle on the three priority issues – citizens’ rights, a financial settlement and Northern Ireland – was reached. The European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker, and the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, endorsed a joint report setting out a common understanding on the future withdrawal agreement.

The first phase of Brexit talks between the EU and UK negotiating teams needed six rounds of discussion over seven months. Finally, on Friday 8 December, an agreement in principle on the three priority issues – citizens’ rights, a financial settlement and Northern Ireland – was reached. The European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker, and the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, endorsed a joint report setting out a common understanding on the future withdrawal agreement. Whilst a number of specific aspects are still under discussion, the European Council decided on 15 December that 'sufficient progress' had been achieved on the first-phase priority issues, and that negotiations could move on to the second phase – on transitional arrangements and the future EU-UK relationship – provided the commitments from the joint report are fully translated into the draft withdrawal agreement. For the transitional period, the European Parliament and the European Council have made clear that all existing Union regulatory, budgetary, supervisory, judiciary and enforcement instruments and structures must apply, including the competence of the Court of Justice of the European Union, but with no UK participation in decision-making, since it would no longer be a member of the EU. Exploratory discussions on the framework for the future relationship will begin only after the adoption by the European Council of additional guidelines in March 2018. The UK has still to clarify its position on the type of trade deal it seeks with the EU.

Statute for Social and Solidarity-based Enterprises

06-12-2017

Social enterprises combine societal goals with entrepreneurial spirit. These organisations focus on achieving wider social, environmental or community objectives. There is currently no specific European legal framework to help social enterprises to benefit from the internal market. Against this background, this European added value assessment identifies the challenges in the existing national legal frameworks regarding social enterprises. It argues that action at EU level would generate economic ...

Social enterprises combine societal goals with entrepreneurial spirit. These organisations focus on achieving wider social, environmental or community objectives. There is currently no specific European legal framework to help social enterprises to benefit from the internal market. Against this background, this European added value assessment identifies the challenges in the existing national legal frameworks regarding social enterprises. It argues that action at EU level would generate economic and social added value. Moreover, it outlines potential legislative measures that could be taken at EU level, and that could generate European added value through simplification and a coordinated approach in this area.

Umsetzung der sozialen Säule

05-12-2017

Die europäische Säule sozialer Rechte („soziale Säule“) wurde am 17. November 2017 von der Kommission, dem Rat und dem Europäischen Parlament auf dem Sozialgipfel in Göteborg gemeinsam proklamiert und unterzeichnet. Die größte Herausforderung besteht nach wie vor darin, dass dieser Referenzrahmen alle Bürger in der gesamten EU erreicht. Da die Befugnisse der EU im Sozialbereich begrenzt sind, liegt die Umsetzung bei den Mitgliedstaaten, die hierbei mit den Sozialpartnern zusammenarbeiten. Das Parlament ...

Die europäische Säule sozialer Rechte („soziale Säule“) wurde am 17. November 2017 von der Kommission, dem Rat und dem Europäischen Parlament auf dem Sozialgipfel in Göteborg gemeinsam proklamiert und unterzeichnet. Die größte Herausforderung besteht nach wie vor darin, dass dieser Referenzrahmen alle Bürger in der gesamten EU erreicht. Da die Befugnisse der EU im Sozialbereich begrenzt sind, liegt die Umsetzung bei den Mitgliedstaaten, die hierbei mit den Sozialpartnern zusammenarbeiten. Das Parlament hat mehrfach hervorgehoben, dass man sich beim Prozess der Umsetzung auf drei Elemente konzentrieren muss: einen lebenszyklusorientierten Ansatz, die Governance sowie die Finanzierung. Im Rahmen der Plenartagung im Dezember werden die Stellungnahmen der Kommission und des Rates im Vorfeld der Tagung des Europäischen Rates im Dezember angehört; bei Letzterer wird es weitere Aussprachen zur sozialen Dimension der EU, darunter zum Thema Bildung, geben.

Armut, Geschlecht und Lebenszyklus: Armutsprofile in der Europäischen Union

30-11-2017

2015 ist fast jeder Vierte (23,8 %) in der Europäischen Union von Armut oder sozialer Ausgrenzung bedroht. Die Lebensbedingungen, der Grad der Armut und die Wege in und aus der Armut unterscheiden sich abhängig vom Alter und vom Geschlecht, aber auch während des gesamten Lebenszyklus. Kinder sind in Europa die am stärksten betroffene Altersgruppe, junge Erwachsene zwischen 18 und 24 Jahren haben in der Union derzeit einen Anteil von 10 % an den von Armut und sozialer Ausgrenzung bedrohten Personen ...

2015 ist fast jeder Vierte (23,8 %) in der Europäischen Union von Armut oder sozialer Ausgrenzung bedroht. Die Lebensbedingungen, der Grad der Armut und die Wege in und aus der Armut unterscheiden sich abhängig vom Alter und vom Geschlecht, aber auch während des gesamten Lebenszyklus. Kinder sind in Europa die am stärksten betroffene Altersgruppe, junge Erwachsene zwischen 18 und 24 Jahren haben in der Union derzeit einen Anteil von 10 % an den von Armut und sozialer Ausgrenzung bedrohten Personen. In diesem Alter fällt der Geschlechterunterschied geringer aus, bei älteren Menschen ist er größer. Das Lebensumfeld hängt heute sehr stark vom Geschlecht, der familiären und/oder der beruflichen Situation ab. Frauen, Einelternfamilien, kinderreiche Familien oder arme Erwerbstätige sind in dieser Phase ihres Lebens stärker von Armut oder sozialer Ausgrenzung bedroht. Ältere Menschen schließlich sind im Durchschnitt am wenigsten von Armut betroffen, gehören gleichzeitig aber zu den am stärksten gefährdeten Gruppen, wenn es sich um ältere Frauen handelt.
