  • 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.

    Coinvolgimento delle parti sociali nazionali nella definizione delle politiche – 2019

    Autore(i): 
    Eurofound

    La presente relazione analizza la qualità del coinvolgimento delle parti sociali nazionali nell’ideazione e attuazione delle riforme e delle politiche nell’ambito del semestre europeo 2018‑2019 nonché nell’elaborazione dei programmi nazionali di riforma.

    Come già riferito in precedenza da Eurofound, esiste una correlazione positiva tra la forza del dialogo sociale nazionale e il coinvolgimento delle parti sociali nella definizione delle politiche. Una correlazione positiva è altresì visibile tra un dialogo sociale nazionale ben funzionante e il coinvolgimento delle parti sociali nel semestre europeo. In alcuni casi, entrambi i processi sono quasi completamente allineati come parte di un tutt’uno nella pratica della politica sociale.

    Sulla base di esempi di riforme e iniziative politiche discusse e attuate dal 2018, il quadro che emerge è quello di un risultato stabile e relativamente efficace nella maggior parte dei paesi. Ciononostante, le parti sociali di diversi paesi continuano a essere insoddisfatte del fatto che le loro opinioni non siano realmente influenti nella definizione delle politiche, anche se questa percezione – di essere sentite, ma non ascoltate – varia da paese a paese e a seconda degli attori.

Le ricerche effettuate anteriormente al recesso del Regno Unito dall’Unione europea il 31 gennaio 2020, e pubblicate successivamente, possono includere i dati relativi ai 28 Stati membri. Salvo indicazione contraria, successivamente a tale data, la ricerca prende in considerazione unicamente i 27 Stati membri dell’UE (UE28 meno il Regno Unito).

Questa relazione presenta i risultati della ricerca condotta prima della pandemia di coronavirus in Europa nel febbraio 2020. Per questo motivo, i risultati non prendono in considerazione la pandemia.
