In the realm of European employment law, tension exists between the concepts of economic policy and social policy. During recent years, a growing tendency to emphasize the economic at the expense of the social can be discerned. What this trend gives us in the views of the leading figures in the field of European labour law and social policy whose considered analyses are presented in this volume is a regime of grand declarations about workers rights, but with extremely limited enforcement potential.
The Changing Face of European Labour Law and Social Policy presents some of the papers given at a series of colloquia sponsored by the Employment Law Research Unit at the University of Warwick in early 2002. In its assessment of the forces at work in European employment law today, these commentaries examine significant initiatives and issues.
Invaluable appendices include a report, as presented by the late Marco Biagi, of a high level group on reform of the European labour market; the text of the Social Policy Agenda, as approved at the Nice Summit of 2000; and the Commission¿s ¿scoreboard¿ on the implementation of the Social Agenda as of 2002. With its down-to-earth analysis of the current status of the 'floor of rights' in the European work environment, The Changing Face of European Labour Law and Social Policy will be of inestimable value to all practitioners and scholars seeking to improve the quality of life for Europe¿s working population and the quality of regulation at the disposal of those charged with confronting the new challenges to social policy resulting from the radical transformation of Europe¿s economy and society.
