The External Dimension of EU Social Security Coordination: Towards a Common EU Approach
Studies in EU External Relations; Volume 15
Despite the often racist-based opposition of refugees entering Europe, says Melin, both the European Union and its Member States need workers from developing countries to make up for the aging and shrinking of the native population. Europe is currently losing the competition for talent, and that situation will only worsen without a major turn-around in policy both at the European Union and national levels. She suggests coordination social security arrangements with third countries to attract workers. Among her topics are the European Union framework on social security coordination relevant for third-country nationals, international standards relevant for social security coordination with third countries, and a European Union model agreement as a second "solution" to develop a common approach to social security coordination with third countries.
