Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Don't forget the social protocol in the Treaty of Maastricht


Thanks to the social protocol annexed to the Treaty, Community powers are broadened in the social domain. The United Kingdom is not a signatory of this protocol. Its objectives are:

  • promotion of employment;
  • improvement of living and working conditions;
  • adequate social protection;
  • social dialogue;
  • the development of human resources to ensure a high and sustainable level of employment;
  • the integration of persons excluded from the labour market.

Though everyone else appears to have forgotten, not least the troika wreaking havoc in periphery.
