(p.161) 6 Conclusions
EU Intervention in Domestic Labour Law

Phil Syrpis

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter summarizes the main findings of the book. It is argued that the Court's case law institutionalizes tensions between the integrationist objectives of the EU and the economic and social objectives of national regulation in the labour law field which need not exist. The interventions of the political institutions appear less hostile to diversity; but they tend systematically to privilege the economic over the social. It is argued that a clear commitment to the social rationale and a reorientation of the Lisbon Strategy to would contribute towards the legitimacy of the European polity.

Keywords:   EU, labour law, diversity, integration, social rationale, Lisbon Strategy
