Social convergence has gained an equal footing alongside economic convergence as an EU goal in the wake of the economic crisis. This report presents the results of a study into convergence in working conditions, a major component of social policymaking. It examines whether working conditions have improved over the past two decades in the EU as a whole and whether dissimilarities between Member States in this area have narrowed. The study includes analyses of both the trends and drivers of convergence plus expert interview data on two policy instruments that have the potential to promote convergence. Findings indicate upward convergence in working conditions overall, but uneven progress across Member States.

    Opwaartse convergentie op het gebied van arbeidsomstandigheden

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound

    Sociale convergentie is als doel van de EU na de economische crisis net zo belangrijk geworden als economische convergentie. In dit verslag worden de resultaten gepresenteerd van een onderzoek naar convergentie op het gebied van arbeidsomstandigheden, een belangrijk onderdeel van sociale beleidsvorming. Er wordt onderzocht of de arbeidsomstandigheden de afgelopen twintig jaar zijn verbeterd in de EU als geheel en of de verschillen tussen de lidstaten op dit gebied kleiner zijn geworden. Het onderzoek bevat analyses van zowel de tendensen als de achterliggende factoren van convergentie, evenals informatie uit gesprekken met deskundigen over twee beleidsinstrumenten met de potentie om convergentie te bevorderen. De bevindingen duiden erop dat er over het algemeen sprake is van opwaartse convergentie, maar dat de vooruitgang per lidstaat verschilt.
