  • National social dialogue frameworks can be categorised into three groups in their practices involving social partners in policymaking: countries with well-established social dialogue structures working efficiently; countries where social dialogue institutions exist and work but social partners are not fully satisfied with their involvement in policymaking; and countries where social partners do not feel like they are meaningfully involved in policymaking.

  • National social dialogue frameworks can be categorised into three groups in their practices involving social partners in policymaking: countries with well-established social dialogue structures working efficiently; countries where social dialogue institutions exist and work but social partners are not fully satisfied with their involvement in policymaking; and countries where social partners do not feel like they are meaningfully involved in policymaking.
  • In 2019, social partners in most countries were consulted in policymaking to some extent. Consultations included reforms and policy initiatives within both the country-specific recommendations (CSRs) and the national agenda.
  • Most social partners were also involved in the elaboration of the National Reform Programmes (NRPs) in 2019. However, social partners, notably in Greece, Italy and Hungary, stressed that they were not involved at all or were critical of the quality of involvement.
  • Social partner involvement usually comprised formal consultation on an institutional basis or via bilateral contacts.
  • Most social partners considered the setting used for their involvement appropriate; however, one of the outstanding issues for some social partners is the lack of time allowed for consultation and exchange in the elaboration of the NRP.

This report investigates the quality of the national social partners’ involvement in designing and implementing reforms and policies in the context of the European Semester 2018–2019 and in the elaboration of the National Reform Programmes. As previously reported by Eurofound, there is a positive correlation between the strength of the national social dialogue and the involvement of the social partners in policymaking. A positive correlation is also visible between a well-functioning national social dialogue and the involvement of the social partners in the European Semester. In some cases, both processes are almost fully aligned as part of a continuum in social policy practice. Based on examples of reforms and policy initiatives discussed and implemented since 2018, the picture that emerges is one of stable and relatively effective performance in most countries. Nevertheless, social partners in several countries remain dissatisfied that their views are not truly influential in policymaking, although this perception – of being heard, but not listened to – varies across countries and stakeholders.

    Zapojení vnitrostátních sociálních partnerů do tvorby politik – rok 2019

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    Tato zpráva zkoumá kvalitu zapojení vnitrostátních sociálních partnerů do koncipování a provádění reforem a politik v souvislosti s evropským semestrem 2018–2019 a do vypracování národních programů reforem.

    Jak nadace Eurofound uvedla již dříve, existuje pozitivní korelace mezi sílou vnitrostátního sociálního dialogu a zapojením sociálních partnerů do tvorby politik. Je také patrná pozitivní korelace mezi dobře fungujícím vnitrostátním sociálním dialogem a zapojením sociálních partnerů do evropského semestru. V některých případech jsou oba procesy téměř zcela sladěny jako součást kontinua v praktických otázkách sociální politiky.

    Na základě příkladů reforem a politických iniciativ projednávaných a prováděných od roku 2018 se realizace ve většině zemí jeví jako stabilní a relativně účinná. V několika zemích jsou však sociální partneři stále nespokojeni s tím, že jejich názory nemají na tvorbu politik skutečný vliv, ačkoli tento pocit, že jsou vyslechnuti, ale nenaslouchá se jim, se u jednotlivých zemí a zúčastněných stran liší.

Po uvedeném datu zohledňují výzkumy pouze 27 členských států EU (EU-28 bez Spojeného království), není-li uvedeno jinak.

Tato zpráva předkládá výsledky výzkumu provedeného před výskytem onemocnění COVID-19 v Evropě v únoru 2020. Z tohoto důvodu výsledky pandemii COVID-19 nezohledňují.
