Get this from a library! The social dimension of the European Community. [Ruth Nielsen; Erika M Szyszczak]. The European Community's 'Social Dimension' covers a wide area of social policy which is not always readily understood. This book contains an historical overview of EC social policy which analyses its development over the last forty years.

This social dimension represents the soul of the European Union, and has been envied and adopted by other regions and countries in the world.

  The Social Dimension: European Developments in Social Psychology (European Studies in Social Psychology) by Henri Tajfel (Editor) ISBN The six original EEC member states — Belgium, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands — believed that, if enterprises were allowed to compete on equal terms, the distribution of resources would be optimised, enabling untrammelled economic growth which would automatically result in social development. There are two reasons for drawing attention to the social dimension of European Community law. First, the EEC treaty comprises different provisions on social policy whose importance is consistently underestimated: the treaty is often considered as merely establishing a "common market" and as only concerning economic problems. Although the European Community's single market was officially launched in January 1, , its Social Dimension, an attempt to provide common labor standards and laws for workers in the twelve member nations, remains incomplete.
