(p.3) 1 The Future of Social Rights Protection in Europe
Social Rights in Europe

Gráinne De Búrca

Oxford University Press

The focus of this book is on the protection of social rights in Europe — ‘social rights’ being used broadly to refer to the category of rights which concern economic and social well-being, and ‘Europe’ referring primarily to the overlapping systems of the European Union (EU) and the Council of Europe. The profile of social rights has been raised in recent years by the debates during the drafting of the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights and during the Convention leading to the drafting of an EU Constitution about the status of social rights within the European economic and social model. The term ‘social rights’ is used here in a broad sense to include many kinds of economic and social rights, and the choice of case studies — while necessarily selective and inevitably vulnerable to the criticism of under-inclusiveness or specific emphasis — has deliberately been made with this broader category in mind.

Keywords:   Europe, social rights, EU's Charter, Convention, case studies
