Work and Social Policies in the New Europe deals with one of the most urgent challenges which Europe faces in this decade: the social dimension of the new unified Europe. In the new economic landscape which the single market will create before the end of this Century, it is important to have answers to the following questions. How are we going to work and under which kind of employment contract? Who will decide about our social security systems? What kind of negotiations will take place about the level of our welfare and the condition of our work? Who are the social partners and what kind of delegation do they have? What will be the role of the individual States in this negotiations? What are the arguments justifying the position of the unions or the employers? Who will finally decide about the social laws in tomorrow's Europe?

This very timely and most useful book is about our life in the future. It shows how those who are involved in shaping it - from the individual experts to the members of the European Commission - look at the problem and can take the necessary democratic action to build the social Europe of the next Century.
