Sammanfattning

This report presents an overview of living conditions in the five current EU candidate countries – Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey. It is based on the results of the 2016 European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS) and covers three broad areas: quality of life, quality of public services and quality of society. The report consists of an introductory overview chapter and five country profiles. The survey results are relevant both from a national perspective and in the context of the areas addressed in the EU enlargement process. They are also instructive in the broader context of the Sustainable Development Goals, which countries sometimes struggle to assess due to a lack of comprehensive monitoring measures. The EQLS results show that some aspects of quality of life are similar across the candidate countries. On a number of indicators, they score lower than the EU28 average, but the quality of certain public services is ranked relatively high in these countries.

    Livet och samhället i EU:s kandidatländer

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Denna rapport ger en översikt över levnadsvillkoren i de fem nuvarande kandidatländerna – Albanien, Montenegro, Nordmakedonien, Serbien och Turkiet. Den bygger på resultaten av 2016 års europeiska undersökning om livskvalitet (EQLS) och omfattar tre breda områden: livskvalitet, kvalitet på offentliga tjänster och samhällskvalitet. Rapporten består av ett inledande översiktskapitel och fem landprofiler.

    Undersökningsresultaten är relevanta både ur ett nationellt perspektiv och mot bakgrund av de områden som tas upp i EU:s utvidgningsprocess. De är också intressanta i det bredare sammanhanget som rör målen för hållbar utveckling, som länderna ibland har svårt att bedöma då det saknas övergripande övervakningsåtgärder. Resultaten av EQLS visar att kandidatländerna liknar varandra i fråga om vissa aspekter av livskvaliteten. När det gäller en del indikatorer ligger de under genomsnittet för EU28, men kvaliteten på vissa offentliga tjänster bedöms vara förhållandevis hög i dessa länder.
