This book is the final product of their Brussels conference in October 2002, organised by the Social Law Department of Ghent University. Their deeply informed contributions respond to such probing questions as the following:- Does the much-talked-of European social model really exist?- Are effective collective agreements feasible under the current EC Treaty?- Is the conclusion of collective agreements negotiation or legislation?- Can a viable compromise be achieved between the often contradictory aims of competition law and social policy?The discussions include incisive analyses of relevant law and legal theory - pertinent EC Treaty provisions and directives, decisions of the Communitys courts, existing and potential collective agreements - as well as declarations of the social partners and from Community institutions. The text of the work programme drawn up by ETUC, UNICE, and CEEP in November 2002 is reproduced in full.
