The European Pillar of Social Rights: a first step towards a European Social Union?

The adoption of a European Pillar of Social Rights in November 2017 constitutes a unique opportunity to launch a debate on ESU. The Pillar has marked a point of no return: either it will be a sufficiently convincing and recognizable success, or it will be a high-profile failure. Given the political cost of an eventual failure, those of us who care about the social dimension of European politics should now work on an interpretation of the Pillar that maximizes its positive potential. The idea of a European Social Union can provide a fertile context for the search and specification of such raison d’être, by pointing to both possible justifications and practical opportunities.
