Working Group 5

The EaP CSF Working Group “Social & Labour Policies and Social Dialogue” was set up at the fourth CSF meeting in Stockholm in November 2012. It is the only Working Group of the Forum not modelled after a Platform of the multilateral track of the EaP, although members of the working group advocate for the setting up of a Platform 5 focusing on social policy and employment within the EaP or – if this should not be possible – for the establishment of a sub-platform under the existing Platform 2 (Economic integration and convergence with EU policies) focusing on social and employment trends.
