Policy Précis


What is the European Pillar of Social Rights, and what does it mean for health?

Elements of the Social pillar

Building a more inclusive and fairer Union is a key priority for the European Commission (EC). In March 2016, the EC presented a preliminary outline of the European Pillar of Social Rights and launched a broad public consultation. One year later, the EC published its final proposal for the European Pillar of Social Rights. The Pillar sets out a number of key principles and rights to support fair and well-functioning labour markets and welfare systems and more resilient economic structures. The Pillar is designed as a compass for a renewed process of convergence towards bett er working and living conditions. It is primarily conceived for the euro area but open to all EU Member States.
