European social partners wish to continue to build on the outcomes of the previous joint projects on capacity building for the social dialogue, to discuss and review the main challenges that national social partners still face for an effective involvement in the EU Social Dialogue, including the extent to which EU social dialogue agreements have been given a follow-up at national level. They therefore intended to organise, in early 2011, a large-scale seminar on the EU Social Dialogue bringing together social partners from all EU member states and Croatia and Turkey.

This EU Social Dialogue seminar was organised and coordinated by ETUC on behalf of the EU social partners. It took place in Budapest on 3-4 May 2011. You can download here:
