The Social Dimension in Selected Candidate Countries in the Balkans - Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia and Turkey: Synthesis Report
The book was published in result of a study conducted by a consortium composed of of TARKI Social Research Institute (Hungary), CASE - Center for Social and Economic Research (Poland) and CEPS - Centre for European Policy Studies (Belgium). Contracted by the European Commission the consortium analysed the socio-economic developments and the process of structural reforms in Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia and Turkey and identified major challanges in the current demographic, social and economic context, which can be considered most pertinent for determining candidate countries' capacity to function in the Union.
The project assessed recent reform efforts and major current issues for further reform that will allow the candidate countries to participate in the process of economic and monetary integration and to become active members of the Union in all aspects of the civil society, political and cultural life. One of the outputs of the project is the following publicaiton consisting of four country studies and a synthesis report, which provide a comprehensive overview of the social situation in the countries in question.
