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.

    Convergencia al alza en materia de empleo y factores socioeconómicos

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound

    La convergencia al alza es un proceso por el que se considera que el rendimiento de los Estados miembros de la UE en un ámbito o una serie de ámbitos determinados mejora, al tiempo que se reducen las diferencias entre los Estados miembros. Lograr una convergencia al alza reviste una importancia crucial para la UE, ya que el aumento de las disparidades entre los Estados miembros pone en peligro la cohesión de la Unión, defraudando las expectativas de los ciudadanos de que la adhesión a la UE mejorará las condiciones de vida y de trabajo.

    El presente informe investiga las últimas tendencias socioeconómicas y de empleo en todos los Estados miembros y ofrece posibles medidas políticas para ayudar a evitar futuras divergencias. El análisis se basa en un grupo de 21 indicadores, la mayoría de los cuales son indicadores principales del Cuadro de indicadores sociales del pilar europeo de derechos sociales. Las conclusiones revelan que, a pesar del efecto negativo de la crisis económica de 2008, se han restablecido las tendencias de convergencia al alza en la mayoría de los indicadores examinados.
