Paper presented on 26 April 2017 by the European Commission as part of a set of reflection papers accompanying the White Paper on the future of Europe.
On 1 March 2017, the European Commission presented the White Paper on the future of Europe. A series of reflection papers covering key topics for the future of the European Union with 27 Member States were published subsequently.
Looking ahead, the debate should be about how to adapt our social models to current and future challenges and galvanise Europe's social spirit. This reflection paper on the social dimension of Europe is the Commission's contribution to this discussion. It maps out the trends and challenges and, most importantly, opens avenues on how to turn our aspirations into a reality, how to empower Europeans for the world in 2025, and how to make our societies stronger and more adaptable.
