Aims and Objectives
This project was funded by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Social Policy. Its aim was to study the implementation of EC directives in the social policy field. The CBR took part as part of a network involving units in France (IDHE-Cachan), Germany (University of Hamburg), Belgium (Catholic Univesrity of Louvain) and Sweden (SCORE, University of Stockholm). Detailed case studies were carried out of the implementation of the Directive on Information and Consultation of Employees and of the Telework Agreement. In addition, background research and field work was carried out in relation to the Directives on Fixed-term Employment, Part-Time Work and Parental Leave. Draft reports were completed in June 2007 and the final reports were presented to a conference in Brussels in November 2007.
