The European Pillar of Social Rights contains 20 principles in the areas of equal opportunities and access to the labour market, fair working conditions as well as social protection and inclusion. It was solemnly proclaimed in 2017 and has since established itself as a compass for EU social policy and as an important reference in other EU policy areas. On the occasion of the upcoming EU elections in June 2024, AK EUROPA, together with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), Social Platform and Solidar, has commissioned a study to take stock of the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights to date and provide impetus for the upcoming EU legislative period. The study written by the European Policy Centre (EPC) identifies six fields of action for the coming EU legislative period: an EU initiative for better working conditions, measures for a just green transition, the promotion of equal opportunities, a social protection package, innovative and future-oriented financing instruments as well as improved political decision-making processes.
