Upward convergence is a process whereby the performance of EU Member States in a given domain or range of domains is seen to improve while gaps between Member States reduce. Achieving upward convergence is of crucial importance to the EU, as the increase of disparities among Member States threatens the cohesion of the Union by counteracting citizens’ expectations that EU membership will improve working and living conditions. This report investigates recent socioeconomic and employment trends across Member States and offers possible policy measures to assist in avoiding future divergence. The analysis is based on a set of 21 indicators; most of them are headline indicators on the Social Scoreboard of the European Pillar of Social Rights. The findings reveal that, despite the negative effect of the 2008 economic crisis, upward convergence trends have been restored in most of the indicators examined.

    Upward convergence in employment and socioeconomic factors

    Upward convergence is a process whereby the performance of EU Member States in a given domain or range of domains is seen to improve while gaps between Member States reduce. Achieving upward convergence is of crucial importance to the EU, as the increase of disparities among Member States threatens the cohesion of the Union by counteracting citizens’ expectations that EU membership will improve working and living conditions.

    Opadgående konvergens inden for beskæftigelsesmæssige og socioøkonomiske faktorer

    Forfatter(e): 
    Eurofound

    Opadgående konvergens er en proces, hvorved EU-medlemsstaternes resultater på et eller flere områder viser sig at blive bedre, mens forskellene mellem medlemsstaterne bliver mindre. Opnåelse af opadgående konvergens er af afgørende betydning for EU, da stigende ulighed mellem medlemsstaterne truer EU's samhørighed, fordi borgernes forventning om forbedrede arbejds- og levevilkår inden for EU, ikke indfries.

    I denne rapport ses der nærmere på de seneste socioøkonomiske og beskæftigelsesmæssige tendenser i medlemsstaterne, og der foreslås mulige politiktiltag, der kan bidrage til at undgå divergens i fremtiden. Analysen bygger på et sæt af 21 indikatorer, hvoraf de fleste er hovedindikatorer på den sociale resultattavle under den europæiske søjle for sociale rettigheder. Resultaterne viser, at trods de negative følger af den økonomiske krise i 2008 har tendenserne i retning af opadgående konvergens genindfundet sig i de fleste af de undersøgte indikatorer.
