EU Employment Law

From Rome to Amsterdam and Beyond

By Jeff Kenner

This book traces the evolution of European Union employment law and social policy from its essentially economic origins in the Treaty of Rome to the emerging themes post-Amsterdam - coordination of national employment policies, modernization of social laws, and combating discrimination. Each stage of development of Community employment law and social policy is analyzed in depth to give a sense of perspective to this fast changing field. As the European Union seeks to meet the challenges of globalization, the need to develop social policy as a productive factor has come to the fore. The author explains how the social, economic and employment imperatives of European integration have always been intertwined and how the emergence of Community employment law from its hitherto twilight existence is best understood through an examination of consistent strands of policy development.
