This chapter focuses on the Open Method of Coordination (OMC), a method of policy delivery in the European Union. It begins by reviewing the imprimatur given by the European Council to the Open Method of Coordination at the Lisbon and Nice Summits. It then examines the operation of the OMC process in the three key areas of economic policy, employment policy, and social inclusion. Finally, the chapter evaluates the OMC, by looking at how far it fulfils the aspirations that underpin this mode of policy delivery in the EU.

Keywords:   Open Method of Coordination, OMC, policy delivery, European Union, Lisbon Summit, Nice Summit, economic policy, employment policy, social inclusion
