Sozialpolitische Steuerung in der Europäischen Union: Regelung bei komplexen Systemen

12-05-2020

Während die wirtschaftspolitische Steuerung in der EU heute über einen regulierten zwingenden Rahmen durch¬geführt wird, gibt es für die sozialpolitische Steue¬rung keinen vergleichbaren Rahmen. Die sozialpoliti¬sche Steuerung findet sich vor allem in den nicht zwingenden unregulierten Politikbereichen, es gelten jedoch auch einige zwingende politische Steuerungs¬mechanismen.

Temporary support to mitigate unemployment risks in an emergency (SURE)

15-04-2020

The coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) is having a major negative impact on employment. As part of the EU’s response to the crisis, the European Commission has proposed the creation of SURE, a temporary instrument to complement national efforts to protect employees and the self-employed from the risk of unemployment and loss of income. Under the scheme, the EU would be able to provide financial support worth up to €100 billion to 'short-time work' schemes and other national measures that have this objective ...

The coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) is having a major negative impact on employment. As part of the EU’s response to the crisis, the European Commission has proposed the creation of SURE, a temporary instrument to complement national efforts to protect employees and the self-employed from the risk of unemployment and loss of income. Under the scheme, the EU would be able to provide financial support worth up to €100 billion to 'short-time work' schemes and other national measures that have this objective. The Eurogroup has welcomed the proposal, which the Council should now fine-tune and adopt rapidly. While the instrument is linked to the EU budget through a guarantee scheme, Parliament is not involved in the legislative procedure due to the legal basis.

Better communication for cohesion policy

05-11-2019

Cohesion policy is a major EU investment tool aimed at reducing regional disparities and achieving economic, social and territorial cohesion. It delivers a wide range of results in areas such as new infrastructure, training, job creation, support for small businesses and environmental protection. Communication is key when it comes to making the public aware of existing funding opportunities and informing them of the results of cohesion policy investments. It can also affect public perception of the ...

Cohesion policy is a major EU investment tool aimed at reducing regional disparities and achieving economic, social and territorial cohesion. It delivers a wide range of results in areas such as new infrastructure, training, job creation, support for small businesses and environmental protection. Communication is key when it comes to making the public aware of existing funding opportunities and informing them of the results of cohesion policy investments. It can also affect public perception of the EU and raise awareness of the positive impact of EU support on people's everyday lives. Improving the visibility of cohesion policy is therefore a salient issue for the EU. Communication measures range from requirements for fund managers and beneficiaries on the basis of EU legislation to more informal initiatives such as information campaigns, events and web portals aimed at publicising the policy's achievements. In the framework of multi-level governance, communication activities bring together a wide variety of actors including EU institutions, Member States, regional and local authorities and members of civil society. The ongoing negotiations on the new multiannual financial framework for 2021 to 2027, including new regulations on cohesion policy, and the upcoming conclusion of the 2014-2020 programming period provide a good opportunity for reflection on the issue of cohesion policy communication. This briefing updates an earlier edition, of March 2019. It was originally produced at the request of a member of the European Committee of the Regions, in the framework of the Cooperation Agreement between the Parliament and the Committee.

Politische Maßnahmen der EU im Interesse der Bürger: Bekämpfung der Arbeitslosigkeit

28-06-2019

Bereits seit Anfang der 1950er Jahre engagiert sich die Europäische Union (EU) für die Bekämpfung der Arbeitslosigkeit, indem sie eine hohe Beschäftigungsquote fördert. Das Thema wurde mit Beginn der Wirtschafts- und Finanzkrise 2008 und dem damit verbundenen Anstieg der Arbeitslosenquoten in allen Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Union (EU) ganz oben auf die europäische Agenda gesetzt. In ihrer Strategie Europa 2020 hat die Europäische Kommission das Ziel festgelegt, bis 2020 75 % der 20- bis 64 ...

Bereits seit Anfang der 1950er Jahre engagiert sich die Europäische Union (EU) für die Bekämpfung der Arbeitslosigkeit, indem sie eine hohe Beschäftigungsquote fördert. Das Thema wurde mit Beginn der Wirtschafts- und Finanzkrise 2008 und dem damit verbundenen Anstieg der Arbeitslosenquoten in allen Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Union (EU) ganz oben auf die europäische Agenda gesetzt. In ihrer Strategie Europa 2020 hat die Europäische Kommission das Ziel festgelegt, bis 2020 75 % der 20- bis 64-Jährigen in Beschäftigung zu bringen. Die Arbeitsmarktbedingungen in der EU haben sich in den letzten Jahren erheblich verbessert, und die meisten Arbeitsmarktindikatoren verzeichneten eine stetige Verbesserung. Seit Mitte 2013 ist die Arbeitslosenquote in der EU rückläufig und liegt inzwischen wieder auf dem Stand von vor der Krise (6,5 % im Februar 2019). Trotz der Erholung des Wirtschaftswachstums und seiner positiven Auswirkungen auf den Arbeitsmarkt steht die EU noch vor Herausforderungen im Hinblick auf die Arbeitslosigkeit, insbesondere in Bezug auf Unterschiede zwischen den Mitgliedstaaten, Jugendarbeitslosigkeit und Langzeitarbeitslosigkeit. Seit 2014 wurden in einer Reihe von Bereichen Anstrengungen unternommen, u. a. zur Unterstützung junger Menschen bei ihrem Eintritt in den Arbeitsmarkt, zur Bekämpfung der Langzeitarbeitslosigkeit, zur Verbesserung der Kompetenzen und zur Förderung der Mobilität der Arbeitnehmer in der Europäischen Union. Die Verbesserung der Arbeitsmarktindikatoren kommt in der gestiegenen Wertschätzung der Bürger für das Engagement der EU bei der Bekämpfung der Arbeitslosigkeit zum Ausdruck. Dennoch gibt es zahlreiche Forderungen an die EU, in diesem Politikbereich noch mehr zu tun (76 % der Unionsbürger). In Zukunft könnten neue oder aktualisierte Rechtsvorschriften im Beschäftigungsbereich die Arbeit modernisieren, um die Anpassung an eine digitale Welt zu erleichtern, nachhaltige Übergänge von der Arbeitslosigkeit ins Erwerbsleben und von einem Arbeitsplatz zum nächsten zu unterstützen, die Mobilität der Arbeitnehmer zu erhöhen und für eine engere Abstimmung zwischen der Wirtschafts- und Sozialpolitik zu sorgen. Dies ist die aktualisierte Fassung eines Briefings, das vor der Wahl zum Europäischen Parlament 2019 veröffentlicht wurde.

European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) 2021-2027

29-03-2019

In preparation for the upcoming Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027, the European Commission published a proposal for a regulation on the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) on 30 May 2018. In the same spirit as the current European Social Fund 2014-2020, the ESF+ will provide the main EU financial instrument for improving workers' mobility and employment opportunities and strengthening social cohesion, improving social fairness and increasing competitiveness across Europe for the 2021-2027 ...

In preparation for the upcoming Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027, the European Commission published a proposal for a regulation on the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) on 30 May 2018. In the same spirit as the current European Social Fund 2014-2020, the ESF+ will provide the main EU financial instrument for improving workers' mobility and employment opportunities and strengthening social cohesion, improving social fairness and increasing competitiveness across Europe for the 2021-2027 period. With a provisional budget of €101.2 billion (current prices), the ESF+ should merge the existing European Social Fund (ESF), the Youth Employment Initiative (YEI), and the Fund for European Aid to the most Deprived (FEAD), the Employment and Social Innovation Programme (EaSI) and the EU Health Programme. The new fund will concentrate its investment in three main areas: education, employment and social inclusion. At the European Parliament, the file was assigned to the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs (EMPL), which adopted its report on 3 December, 2018. On 16 January 2019, the committee’s amendments to increase the funding and make youth and children the main beneficiaries were approved by plenary. No trilogue meetings have taken place, and so Parliament is now due to conclude the first reading during the April I plenary session. Third edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Common Provisions Regulation: New rules for cohesion policy for 2021-2027

22-03-2019

For the next EU budget, covering the 2021-2027 period, the European Commission proposes to update EU cohesion policy with a new set of rules. The proposal for a Common Provisions Regulation (CPR) sets out common provisions for seven shared management funds: the European Regional Development Fund, the Cohesion Fund, the European Social Fund Plus, the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, the Asylum and Migration Fund, the Internal Security Fund and the Border Management and Visa Instrument.

For the next EU budget, covering the 2021-2027 period, the European Commission proposes to update EU cohesion policy with a new set of rules. The proposal for a Common Provisions Regulation (CPR) sets out common provisions for seven shared management funds: the European Regional Development Fund, the Cohesion Fund, the European Social Fund Plus, the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, the Asylum and Migration Fund, the Internal Security Fund and the Border Management and Visa Instrument. Additional specific regulations add certain provisions needed to cater for the particularities of individual funds, in order to take into account their different rationales, target groups and implementation methods. The proposed CPR is of the utmost importance as it will set the main rules that govern the above-mentioned funds for the forthcoming period. While the proposal builds upon the previous sets of rules covering the 2014-2020 period, it nevertheless introduces a number of innovations. It aims, amongst other things, to simplify and improve synergies between the different EU policy tools. Third edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.
