This report reviews the policy contribution of the fourth EWCS, paying particular attention to the: contribution that the survey currently makes to debates and action regarding specific EU social and employment policies and concerns; potential contribution of the survey in identifying new policy concepts that can capture more complex concerns, in the way that ‘flexicurity’ and ‘job quality’ have done in previous research. The report is based on a mixture of detailed desk research covering the survey results, secondary analyses and other research reports, together with face-to-face discussions with European Commission officials, European social partner representatives and researchers who have worked with the survey.
