Resumen del proyecto:

This Thematic Network is about providing access to existing data in the EU and the Accession Countries (AC) that is necessary to qualify and quantify the impact of enlargement on the free movement of labour in all its social aspects (Health, Pensions and Unemployment, HPU). We will go further to include monitoring information on the status of social protection reform in the AC, including their introducing of the acquis communautaire. We carry out specific research activities, using our data and information to forecast future developments in HPU that have a major impact on socio-economic development and on policy making in the EU. We want to know and work on the question to what extent Europeanisation leads to a further convergence of the different social protection systems in the MS and the AC?
