Tania Bazzani analyses the relationship between the European Union (EU) employment policies and their domestic implementation through the open method of coordination. The first part of the book focuses on key concepts at the European level in active and passive labour market policies (LMPs) through their historical development. The second part of the book proposes an analysis of the EU employment policies implementation – in active and passive LMPs – in three Member States: Germany, Italy and Denmark. By highlighting the different and common tendencies in the last reforms in the field adopt ed by the mentioned Member States, the book deals with the pending issues in the European Union employment policies implementation and suggests possible solutions.
"Her reflections on the theoretical framework guiding the Pillar’s contribution to the development of ‘social’ Europe are insightful and thought-provoking and should be a reference point for any future discussion of the values and norms which should underpin social Europe."
