Abstract

The idea of a social dimension to European union has had a troubled ride. This paper argues that achieving such a goal in a coherent and fully-fledged form will be difficult. There are a number of forces working in favour of convergence; but they are counterbalanced by forces tending towards fragmentation. After outlining the various influences at play the author concludes that a new social dimension to the European Community will not emerge as a comprehensive system of labour market regulation but will continue in its present fragmented form. The social dimension will grow in importance only step by step. -Author
