(04 February 2014) – Notre Europe-Jacques Delors Institute has published a synthesis of the expert seminar they organised with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation on 3 December 2013 entitled “What Kind of Social Europe After the Crisis?”.

- Social Europe’s place in the European integration project
- The EU’s action in the social sphere: from “hard law” to “soft law”
- A set of initiatives for employment in Europe
- Increasing social investment at a time of tighter budgets
- Endowing the EMU with a social dimension
- Social dialogue under strain
