Examining the effect of employment and social indicators

IES will complete a short country profile for the UK and a very short briefing for Greece as part of a study led by the Istituto per la ricerca sociale (IRS) examining the effect of employment and social indicators in the 2014 and 2015 European Semester exercise, in terms of improving social monitoring. The study will evaluate whether:

  • these indicators are suitable to adequately capture and reflect social impacts
  • the introduction of these indicators has led to restoring the balance between social and economic governance
  • the interplay between fiscal/structural reforms and the recommendations regarding the employment and social situation advocated in the CSRs is balanced.
