Social Partners’ Working Group: NEETs, Brussels, 28 March 2019

As part of their integrated projects 2016-2018, the European social partners organised, in 2017            and 2018, seminars in Brussels to discuss their involvement in the European semester and economic governance processes.

Following these initiatives, the European social partners have created a dedicated group reporting to the Social Dialogue Committee. This group will reflect on jointly identified themes of a common interest, taking into account the challenges highlighted in the semester process. The work is to facilitate the mutual learning process and may result in a joint or coordinated social partners’ proposals/actions, which will take into consideration national practices and will be related to the European semester process.          

In 2019, the two meetings will focus respectively on the issues of 1) how to reduce the number of young people who are neither in employment nor in education or training (NEETs); and 2) social partner involvement and priorities for effective active labour markets policies.

In 2020, two meetings will focus respectively on 1) demographic challenges and 2) child care (themes to be confirmed by the European social partners at a later stage).
