Politische Maßnahmen der EU im Interesse der Bürger: Gesundheits- und Sozialwesen

28-06-2019

Wenngleich das Gesundheits- und Sozialwesen in der Europäischen Union (EU) in erster Linie Aufgabe der einzelnen EU-Mitgliedstaaten ist, ergänzt die EU deren Politik, insbesondere in Bereichen mit einer grenzüberschreitenden Dimension. In einer kürzlich im Auftrag des Europäischen Parlaments durchgeführten Umfrage haben sich über zwei Drittel der Bürgerinnen und Bürger der EU für einen Ausbau der Maßnahmen der EU im Bereich Gesundheit und Soziales ausgesprochen.

Wenngleich das Gesundheits- und Sozialwesen in der Europäischen Union (EU) in erster Linie Aufgabe der einzelnen EU-Mitgliedstaaten ist, ergänzt die EU deren Politik, insbesondere in Bereichen mit einer grenzüberschreitenden Dimension. In einer kürzlich im Auftrag des Europäischen Parlaments durchgeführten Umfrage haben sich über zwei Drittel der Bürgerinnen und Bürger der EU für einen Ausbau der Maßnahmen der EU im Bereich Gesundheit und Soziales ausgesprochen. Die EU-Gesundheitspolitik hat die Förderung guter Gesundheit, den Schutz der Bürgerinnen und Bürger vor gesundheitlichen Gefahren und die Unterstützung dynamischer Gesundheitssysteme zum Ziel. Ihre Umsetzung erfolgt hauptsächlich über EU-Aktionsprogramme, derzeit im Rahmen des dritten Gesundheitsprogramms (2014–2020). Zu den Herausforderungen zählen die gesundheitliche Versorgung einer alternden Bevölkerung und die Verringerung der Inzidenz vermeidbarer chronischer Krankheiten. Seit 2014 wurden in einer Reihe von Bereichen Fortschritte erzielt, darunter Antibiotikaresistenz, Übergewicht bei Kindern, Gesundheitssysteme, Medizinprodukte und Impfungen. Die Maßnahmen der EU im Bereich der sozialen Sicherheit sind eng mit der Umsetzung der sogenannten europäischen Säule sozialer Rechte sowie mit den Entwicklungen auf dem Arbeitsmarkt verbunden. Die EU trägt zur Stärkung des sozialen Zusammenhalts bei und strebt nach der Förderung von Gleichheit und Solidarität durch angemessene, zugängliche und finanziell tragfähige Systeme der sozialen Sicherheit sowie durch Maßnahmen zur sozialen Eingliederung. Die Ausgaben der EU für die soziale Sicherung sind mit Arbeitsmarktmaßnahmen verknüpft. Obgleich bei Themen wie der Vereinbarkeit von Beruf und Privatleben und Chancengleichheit Fortschritte zu verzeichnen sind, bleibt noch viel zu tun. Die sozialen Sicherungssysteme müssen künftig besser an die neuen Gegebenheiten auf dem Arbeitsmarkt angepasst werden (weniger Arbeitsplätze in der verarbeitenden Industrie, atypische Verträge, „Plattformarbeit“ usw.). In ihrem Vorschlag für den mehrjährigen Finanzrahmen 2021–2027 plant die Europäische Kommission eine Aufstockung der Mittel, um die Beschäftigungschancen für Arbeitnehmer zu verbessern und den sozialen Zusammenhalt durch einen erweiterten „Europäischen Sozialfonds Plus“ zu stärken. Der Fonds würde auch die Finanzierung des eigenständigen Gesundheitsprogramms umfassen und hätte dabei zum Ziel, Synergien mit den anderen Bausteinen der europäischen Säule sozialer Rechte zu schaffen: Chancengleichheit und Zugang zum Arbeitsmarkt, faire Arbeitsbedingungen sowie soziale Sicherung und Eingliederung. Dies ist eine Aktualisierung eines früheren Briefings, das vor den Europawahlen 2019 veröffentlicht wurde.

Recasting the Return Directive

14-06-2019

The Return Directive is the main piece of EU legislation governing the procedures and criteria to be applied by Member States when returning irregularly staying third-country nationals, and a cornerstone of the EU return policy. Taking into account the decrease in the EU return rate (45.8 % in 2016 and 36.6 % in 2017), and following European Council and Council calls to review the 2008 legal text to enhance the effectiveness of the EU return policy, in September 2018, the Commission proposed a targeted ...

Taking into account the decrease in the EU return rate (45.8 % in 2016 and 36.6 % in 2017), and following European Council and Council calls to review the 2008 legal text to enhance the effectiveness of the EU return policy, in September 2018, the Commission proposed a targeted recast of the directive aiming to 'reduce the length of return procedures, secure a better link between asylum and return procedures and ensure a more effective use of measures to prevent absconding'. In the 2014-2019 parliamentary term, the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee discussed some 654 amendments to the proposal, tabled in February 2019 following the publication of the rapporteur's draft report. However, since the committee did not adopt a report at that time, the new Parliament will have to decide how to approach the file (with a new rapporteur). In the meantime, the Council has reached a partial general approach on the proposal. Second edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Since June 2014, the European Council Oversight Unit within the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), the European Parliament's in-house research service and think tank, has been monitoring and analysing the European Council's delivery on commitments made in the conclusions of ...

The role of the European Council – to 'provide the Union with the necessary impetus for its development' and to define its 'general political directions and priorities' – has evolved rapidly over the last decade. Since June 2014, the European Council Oversight Unit within the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), the European Parliament's in-house research service and think tank, has been monitoring and analysing the European Council's delivery on commitments made in the conclusions of its meetings. This overview of European Council conclusions is a new, updated and more comprehensive edition of the Rolling Check-List, which has been published regularly by the European Council Oversight Unit since 2014. It distinguishes between four types of European Council conclusions (commitments, reviews, endorsements and statements) and indicates the follow-up given to calls for action made by EU leaders. It also offers an introductory analysis of each policy area, highlighting the background to the main orientations given by the European Council, as well as the follow-up to them and the future challenges.

How to tackle challenges in a future-oriented EU industrial strategy? (2 Volumes)

14-06-2019

This study provides a critical assessment of the 2017 EU industrial strategy and of the policy measures it comprises. Even though the EU industrial strategy is still a “meta-policy”, it successfully promotes a more integrated and innovative approach. However, it should more clearly identify mission-oriented strategic goals and mobilise the necessary effort and means to reach them. This document was provided/prepared by Policy Department A at the request of the Industry, Research and Energy Committee ...

Demographic outlook for the European Union 2019

03-06-2019

This paper is the second in a series that EPRS is producing on the demographic outlook for the European Union (EU). Demography matters. The economy, labour market, healthcare, pensions, the environment, intergenerational fairness and election results – they are all driven by demography. The EU has seen its population grow substantially – by around a quarter since 1960 – and currently stands at over 500 million people. However, it is now beginning to stagnate, before its expected decline from around ...

This paper is the second in a series that EPRS is producing on the demographic outlook for the European Union (EU). Demography matters. The economy, labour market, healthcare, pensions, the environment, intergenerational fairness and election results – they are all driven by demography. The EU has seen its population grow substantially – by around a quarter since 1960 – and currently stands at over 500 million people. However, it is now beginning to stagnate, before its expected decline from around the middle of the century. With the world population having risen still more substantially and growth continuing, the EU represents a shrinking proportion of this population. The EU population is also ageing dramatically, as life expectancy increases and fertility rates fall below their levels in the past. This has serious implications across a range of areas including the economy, healthcare and pensions. Free movement within the EU and migration from third countries also play an important role in shaping demography in individual Member States and regions. The 'in-focus' section of this year's edition looks at pensions. It highlights that, whilst national reforms have largely successfully addressed issues around the sustainability of pension systems, concerns about the adequacy of pensions, particularly in the future, still remain.

Technology and the arts: Past, present and future synergies

03-05-2019

From the first canvas paintings to the production of musical instruments and contemporary cinema, art as we know it would be simply impossible without resource to humanity’s historical cache of technology development. The reverse of this relationship is also important, with the arts creating driving innovation and generating substantial demand for technology products. In the course of their work, artists often develop new techniques and push the boundaries of the imagination in ways that can provoke ...
