One of the main objectives of the Integrated Project
is to provide European social partners with an overview of the specific
restructuring challenges in the 27 EU Member States to pursue their
discussions on economic and social change. Detailed national studies are
compiled and discussed with local social partners during national
seminars. These studies set out the main economic and social trends in
each country, their situations in terms of restructuring and the
involvement of social partners in these complex processes and a
description of their industrial relations.
Between 2004 and 2006, 10 Member States (Cyprus, the Czech
Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia
and Slovenia) were addressed and common issues of concerns were
presented in a final overview discussed by social partners in all EU
Member States during a synthesis seminar held in Brussels in June 2006.
Ten "old" EU Member States (Ireland, Italy, Spain, Denmark,
Austria, the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, Sweden and Greece)
were studied and national seminars have been held in each country
between 2007 and 2008.
The remaining Member States (Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal, Finland, Bulgaria, Romania) were covered in 2009.
In this section you will find the complete list of the joint
studies on restructuring, issued in the framework of the Integrated
Project of the European social partner organisations.
