  • 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.

    Riiklike sotsiaalpartnerite kaasamine poliitikakujundamisse – 2019

    Autor(id): 
    Eurofound

    Aruandes uuritakse, kui kvaliteetselt on liikmesriikide sotsiaalpartnerid kaasatud reformide ja poliitikate kavandamisse ja rakendamisse Euroopa poolaasta 2018–2019 kontekstis ning riiklike reformikavade väljatöötamisse.

    Nagu Eurofound on varem teatanud, on riikliku sotsiaaldialoogi tugevuse ja sotsiaalpartnerite poliitikakujundamisse kaasamise vahel positiivne korrelatsioon. Positiivne korrelatsioon on nähtav ka hästi toimiva riikliku sotsiaaldialoogi ja sotsiaalpartnerite Euroopa poolaasta protsessi kaasamise vahel. Mõnel juhul on mõlemad protsessid peaaegu täielikult vastavusse viidud sotsiaalpoliitika tavade järjepidevuse osana.

    Alates 2018. aastast arutatud ja rakendatud reformide ja poliitikaalgatuste alusel on enamikus riikides stabiilsed ja suhteliselt tõhusad tulemused. Mitme riigi sotsiaalpartnerid ei ole siiski endiselt rahul sellega, et nende seisukohtadel ei ole poliitikakujundamisel tegelikku mõju, kuigi tajumine, et neid kuuldakse, kuid ei kuulata, oleneb riigist ja sidusrühmast.

Uuringud, mis tehti enne Ühendkuningriigi lahkumist Euroopa Liidust 31. jaanuaril 2020 ja avaldati hiljem, võivad sisaldada andmeid 28 ELi liikmesriigi kohta. Pärast seda kuupäeva võetakse uuringutes arvesse ainult 27 ELi liikmesriiki (EL 28 miinus Ühendkuningriik), kui ei ole märgitud teisiti.

Käesolevas aruandes esitatakse enne COVID-19-puhangut veebruaris 2020 Euroopas tehtud uuringu tulemused. Seetõttu ei arvestata puhangut tulemustes.
