This timely book casts new light on the key issues arising from the contentious debate around the future of the European Social Model.

Marie-Ange Moreau brings together leading experts to provide a thorough and well-informed response to the recent developments in European social and labour law and policy, in the light of institutional changes. The contributing authors provide unique insights as they evaluate the impact of the enlargement processes, the implications of the Lisbon Treaty, the integration of the Charter into EU law and, crucially, the evaluation of the European evolutions in the context of the economic crisis.

Before and After the Economic Crisis will appeal to academics, researchers and graduate students working on European labour law, industry relations, social policy and gender issues and related topics in economics and political sciences.
‘Recommended for college-level collections strong in European labor laws, industry relations, economics and social policy alike, this is a solid exploration of economic and political issues.’
