Depuis 2016, Eurofound suit de près la participation des partenaires sociaux nationaux à l’élaboration des politiques dans le cadre du cycle du Semestre européen. En 2020, l’accent a été placé sur leur participation au cours des premiers mois de la pandémie de COVID-19. Si la pandémie a constitué un obstacle majeur au dialogue social, les résultats de l’analyse montrent comment le dialogue social peut être un outil efficace pour élaborer des initiatives politiques et trouver des solutions aux situations d’urgence affectant les entreprises, les travailleurs, l’économie et la société.
