Abstract

The present document, prepared by IPTS staff on the basis of existing reports, on the agenda set by the Steering Group and on the workshops held by the experts panel in Seville (Spain - May 2001) and Prague (Czech Republic - September 2001) provides a synthetic view of the issues developed by Employment and Societal Change panel. It is structured under four major headings: "The employment challenge"; "Supporting regional transformations"; "Building solidarities"; and "Encouraging mobility Regional transformation", although necessary when considering the observable uneven path of growth in the last decade, is not an evident task. While a variety of development options necessitate getting a closer diagnosis of the regions, the social consequences of any choice will call for complementary measures of social protection and of geographical and social mobility. None of these complementary policies either may emerge regardless of the strong drivers that shape the future of these regions and of EU as a whole. While taking these elements in account the panel has intended to give a clearer and documented image of the reality of CC13 social conditions of life, while these countries and these regions go through the processes of transition and Enlargement.
