(p.234) (p.235) 7 Social Partners
EU Administrative Law

Paul Craig

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the ways in which the social partners are involved in policy-making and policy delivery within the European Union (EU). It begins with discussing the emergence of the social dialogue. It then analyses the Treaty articles, with more specific elaboration of the ways in which the social partners can participate in the making of social policy. The focus then turns to the role of the social partners in the making of agreements that can be transformed into formal law, the problems associated with this process, and the justifications offered for this privileged position. The chapter concludes by looking at less formal texts produced by the social partners through sectoral social committees, and the efforts that have been made to render these more effective.

Keywords:   social partners, policy-making, policy delivery, European Union, formal law, social policy
