  • 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.

    Sudjelovanje nacionalnih socijalnih partnera u oblikovanju politika – 2019.

    Autor(i): 
    Eurofound

    U ovom se izvješću istražuje kvaliteta uključenosti nacionalnih socijalnih partnera u izradu i provedbu reformi i politika u okviru europskog semestra u razdoblju 2018. – 2019. te kvaliteta njihove uključenosti u izradu nacionalnih programa reformi.

    Kao što je prethodno istaknuo Eurofound, postoji pozitivna korelacija između snage socijalnog dijaloga na nacionalnoj razini i sudjelovanja socijalnih partnera u oblikovanju politika. Isto tako, postoji pozitivna korelacija između uspješnog socijalnog dijaloga i uključenosti socijalnih partnera u europski semestar. U nekim su slučajevima oba postupka gotovo u cijelosti usklađena i čine jednu cjelinu u području provedbe socijalne politike.

    Određene reforme i inicijative politika o kojima se raspravlja i koje se provode od 2018. upućuju na stabilne i relativno učinkovite rezultate u većini zemalja. Unatoč tomu, socijalni partneri iz nekoliko zemalja i dalje su nezadovoljni što njihova stajališta ne utječu značajno na oblikovanje politika, iako se takav dojam da ih se čuje, ali da ih se zapravo ne sluša razlikuje ovisno o zemlji i dionicima.

Istraživanja provedena prije datuma povlačenja Ujedinjene Kraljevine iz Europske unije, odnosno prije 31. siječnja 2020., i naknadno objavljena mogu sadržavati podatke koji se odnose na 28 država članica EU-a. Nakon tog datuma istraživanja obuhvaćaju samo 27 država članica EU-a (tj. EU28 bez UK-a) ako nije drugačije navedeno.

Istraživanje čiji su rezultati predstavljeni u ovom izvješću provedeno je prije nego što je u Europi u veljači 2020. izbila epidemija bolesti COVID-19. Zbog toga u tim rezultatima nije uzeta u obzir situacija tijekom epidemije.
