EU sources -Why the European Social Model is still relevant -March 19, 2014

The European Social Model (ESM) played a key role in shaping European societies in the post-war years. The importance of this comprehensive set of social policies to promote inclusive economic growth, high living standards and decent working conditions was clearly illustrated in the first phase of the crisis, when elements like social protection helped cushion the impact in terms of growth, unemployment and poverty. After the adoption of fiscal consolidation policies during the financial and economic crisis the model came under pressure. But, according to the ILO the model is still key to overcome the crisis. The organisation published the country presentations of a Brussels conference dedicated to this theme.
