The Action Plan to implement the European Pillar of Social Rights (“EPSR”) should serve as a tool for Member States to address the well-known challenges facing Europe (e.g., digitalisation, green transition, migration and demographic change). It provides direction and also suggests common legislation to be adopted based on common objectives within the framework of strengthened cooperation, coordination and solidarity. This is even more necessary now, as we are facing the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on health, employment, social and economic aspects.
