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.

    Majanduslike ja sotsiaal-majanduslike tegurite ülespoole suunatud lähenemine

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    Ülespoole suunatud lähenemine on protsess, mille käigus ELi liikmesriikide tulemused teatud valdkonnas või valdkondades paranevad, kuid erinevused liikmesriikide vahel vähenevad. Ülespoole suunatud lähenemise saavutamine ELis on äärmiselt oluline, sest liikmesriikide suurenev ebavõrdsus ohustab liidu ühtekuuluvust ja on vastuolus kodanike ootusega, et Euroopa Liidus paranevad nende töö- ja elutingimused.

    Aruandes uuritakse hiljutisi sotsiaal-majanduslikke ja tööhõivesuundumusi liikmesriikides ning pakutakse võimalikke poliitikameetmeid, mis aitaksid tulevikus ebavõrdsust ennetada. Analüüs põhineb 21 näitaja kogumil, millest enamik on Euroopa sotsiaalõiguste samba sotsiaalvaldkonna tulemustabeli põhinäitajad. Järeldustest ilmneb, et hoolimata 2008. aasta majanduskriisi negatiivsest mõjust on enamiku uuritud näitajate lõikes taastunud ülespoole suunatud lähenemine.
