On 24 April 2015, the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies will host a workshop chaired by Former Italian Prime Minister and economist Mario Monti, chair of the EU High Level Group on ‘Own Resources’. The system of ‘own resources’ is a set of rules which determines who pays what and when to finance the functioning of the EU and its policies. The High Level Group on ‘Own Resources’ was established by the Council, the European Parliament and the Commission in December 2013 to undertake a general review of the Own Resources system. Academics and practitioners will be involved in the workshop.

The aim of the collective research published in this special issue is accordingly threefold. It analyses, firstly, what has happened to social rights in a number of the Eurozone Member States most affected by the crisis. Secondly, it explicitly links two, sometimes rather disconnected discussions of ‘social rights’ by looking at both labour (and employment) rights and a broader range of social rights. Thirdly, it looks at the content, location and background of any fundamental rights challenges made to crisis-imposed changes to work and welfare rights.

Recent years have seen an enormous increase in protests across the world in which citizens have challenged what they see as a deterioration of democratic institutions and the very civil, political and social rights that form the basis of democratic life. This new book addresses the anti-austerity social movements of which these protests form part, mobilizing in the context of a crisis of neoliberalism.
