Sažetak

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.

    Uzlazna konvergencija u zapošljavanju i socioekonomski čimbenici

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Uzlazna konvergencija proces je u kojem se uspješnost država članica EU-a u određenoj domeni ili domenama poboljšava te se smanjuju razlike među državama članicama. Postizanje uzlazne konvergencije od ključnog je značaja za Europsku uniju jer je povećanje razlika među državama članicama prijetnja koheziji Unije, odnosno kosi se s očekivanjima građana da će se njihovi radni i životni uvjeti poboljšati.

    U ovom se izvješću istražuju najnoviji trendovi u zapošljavanju i socioekonomski trendovi u državama članicama te se predstavljaju moguće političke mjere kojima se doprinosi izbjegavanju divergencije u budućnosti. Analiza se temelji na skupu od 21 pokazatelja, većinom glavnih pokazatelja, odnosno socijalnih pokazatelja europskog stupa socijalnih prava. Rezultati istraživanja otkrivaju da, unatoč negativnom učinku gospodarske krize iz 2008., trendovi uzlazne konvergencije ponovno su uspostavljeni u većini ispitanih pokazatelja.
