Abstract

Since the early 1990s, the European Union (EU) and its Member States have been committed to promoting social inclusion and to sustaining and modernizing Europe’s social protection systems. The recent global financial and sovereign debt crises have once again demonstrated — both positively and negatively — not only the critical importance of modern welfare states, but also the need for the EU to play an active role in coordinating and supporting national responses aimed at both economic recovery and social equity (Hemerijck 2013).
