  OSE Research Paper

Governing occupational pensions and unemployment benefits:
the state, the market and the social partners in-between?

Natali D., Sabato S. and Mapelli L. with Vanhercke B. (2017)

The paper demonstrates that occupational welfare is not purely the ‘realm’ of the social partners, who find themselves squeezed between the state and market forces. It also shows that the spread of OW is not a synonym of the withdrawal of the state. The governance of OW is both ‘multi-level’ and ‘hybrid’, and increasingly opaque.

 

 
  OSE Research Paper

Violations of fundamental rights: collateral damage of the Eurozone crisis?
Ghailani D. (2016), OSE Research paper Nr.32 (Available in EN and FR)
 
This research paper lists the austerity measures adopted by a number of Member States, and describes their impact on certain economic and social rights. It then evokes the reaction of international human rights bodies, which denounced these infringements, compares the dynamism of the national constitutional courts to the timidity of the European courts, and explores the question of liability in cases of violations of fundamental rights. 


 
  OSE Lunchtime Session - 26 January 2017

Europeanised or European? Representation by civil society organisations in EU policy-making
 
During this OSE Lunchtime Session, Sandra Kröger (University of Exeter) will be focusing on three questions: To what degree are civil society organisations Europeanized? Who are they addressing when they engage in political representation in EU affairs and with which strategies? And what are the incentives and disincentives for civil society organisation to become engaged with EU policy-making?

 

 
  OSE Opinion Paper

Dialogue social européen : une relance « de la dernière chance »
Pochet P. and Degryse C. (2016), OSE Opinion Paper No.17
 
Philippe Pochet and Christophe Degryse recall the major stages of the European social dialogue and examine the dynamics between the various players. This OSE Opinion Paper (in French) takes an unusual approach by highlighting and questioning the strategy of the employers’ organisations and European multinationals. The authors comment on a possible future relaunch of the European social dialogue.

  

 
  Lunchtime session - 8 December 2016

Labour Market Reform and the Future of Europe after Brexit
 
Daniel Clegg, Amandine Crespy and Steven Van Hecke will discuss the ‘social causes’ and ‘political consequences’ of Brexit. The latter may open a window of opportunity for a wider policy and paradigm reassessment in Europe. At least regarding the EU’s ‘neoliberal’ approach to labour markets.


 
  New publication

 Geplande geneeskundige zorg in het buitenland 
 
Toestemmingen verleend door de Belgische ziekenfondsen 
 

 

 Soins médicaux programmés à l’étranger 
 
Autorisations délivrées par les mutuelles belges

  
Baeten R. & Ghailani D. (2016), OSE, RIZIV-INAMI-NIHDI

The EU Directive on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare was transposed into Belgian law (2013), which led to a revision of the guidance on the application of the pre-existing domestic legal frameworks relating to prior authorization for programmed healthcare abroad. This research paper (NL/FR) explores the application in practice of this revised guidance by the sickness funds and provides some policy recommendations.
