The workshop series (sponsored by the Economic and Social Research Council) concentrates on the impact of EU enlargement on the political, social and economic agenda of the EU. More specifically, it analyses the effects that enlargement has on the pan-European discussion regarding the Single Market policy framework and the concept of a European Social Model. Events held in the framework of the project focus on the contribution of Central and Eastern European countries, in defining priorities of Single Market Reform and socio-economic development in the EU. Issued to be analyzed throughout the workshop series include: - The completion of the Single European Market – the EU policy framework The policy approach of the revised Lisbon Strategy and the Internal Market Strategy and its impact on the domestic economic reform within the member states. - The transformation process in the new member states The extent to which the EU’s Single European Market policy framework, as well as aspirations to meet the stability criteria of EMU influence the domestic reform agenda in new member states. - Labor market reform and migration in the enlarged EU Effects of the changes in the nature of employment on national employment systems and active labor market reform programs developed by individual member states. - The European Social Model- Old versus New Europe? Is the EU heading towards a new multiplicity of social models and can the social model proposed by Lisbon be more than a deregulated free trade area without national borders? The project spans over the period of February – September 2008.
