Defining the European Social Model

(Under elaboration)

What do I mean by “European social model”? An exploration and explanation

Why do I suggest that it might end?

Reading guidelines:

a) Has this definition “evolved” over time, yielding perhaps to the pressures of globalization and of Members State’s domestic economies’ interests ?

– European Platform against Poverty and Exclusion (EC Communication), 2010:

– Communication from the Commission: Employment and social policies: a framework for investing in quality (2001)

b) social policy in a broader sense: including the protection of the consumer, of the vulnerable, of the worker and of public goods.
