European Pillar of Social Rights

Interinstitutionele proclamatie

gepubliceerd: zaterdag, 18 november 2017
European Pillar of Social Rights

COMECE en CEC hebben de interin­sti­tu­tio­nele pro­cla­ma­tie van de European Pillar of Social Rights verwelkomd. Deze werd op 17 no­vem­ber onder­te­kend op de Social Summit for Fair Jobs and Growth die plaatsvond in Göteborg, Zweden.

De COMECE en CEC be­schou­wen deze pro­cla­ma­tie als een essentieele stap naar een Europese Sociale Markt Economie. Dit do­cu­ment kwam onder meer aan de orde in mei 2012 op de CSLK studie­dag over 'Ondernemen en Chris­te­lijke Ethiek'. Genoemd do­cu­ment is opgeno­men in de publi­ca­tie met de lezingen van die studie­dag.

COMECE and CEC consi­der the European Pillar of Social Rights as a vital and
further step towards the European Social Market Economy, therefore we
welcome the high-level consensus set by the joint proclamation of the
Parlia­ment, the Council and the Commission.

We encourage the European Union and its Member States to translate the
do­cu­ment into concrete actions, invol­ving all partners – inclu­ding Church-
and faith-based or­ga­ni­sa­tions - in order to create a deeper and more fair
internal market, for a more social Europe and for the benefit of all people
in the EU.

COMECE and CEC believe that the persis­tent economic and social inequality,
as well as the transformative changes taking place in the world of work, can
be faced only through a European joint effort that is not only formal, but
concrete and tangible, driven by the principles of justice and solidarity.

As highlighted by Pope Francis during COMECE-organised dialogue
(Re)Thin­king Europe, «a European Union that, in facing crises, fails to
recover a sense of being a single community that sustains and assists its
members […], would miss out not only on one of the greatest challenge of
its history, but also on one of the greatest opportunities for its own

Together, COMECE and CEC, invite all actors involved to commit in a dialogue
with Churches and church- and faith-based or­ga­ni­sa­tions, whose experience of
everyday social work will contribute to the success of the initiative and to
restore citizens’ trust and belief in the European project.
