Central and east European social policy and European union accession - time for reflections

Noemi Lendvai, Institute for Social and European Studies, Budapest, Hungary

European Union enlargement and accession are reflexive of both EU and post-communist social policies. There is a unique "dialogue" going on, indicative of fundamental aspects of post-communist, post-transitional social policy. It is also a 'mirror' that reflects shortcomings of governance, and often presents a neglected institutional landscape. Therefore, the Europeanisation of social policy is an essential transformation process for post-communist countries whereby a new language and new concepts are introduced, the outlines of new social-policy governance emerge and enter the space in which social policy is formulated and considered.

Keywords:  European Union Accession, social policy, institutionalism
