Social movements and trends

Social movements

“Some social innovation observers and researchers have claimed that social movements themselves can be conceived (retrospectively) as social innovations, such as environmentalism and feminism, and that has been transformative. Movements have been responsible for forging new problem framings, concepts and diagnoses, as well suggesting novel solutions to new social issues that they have, in part, been responsible for identifying. Movements even create new social identities in the world and contribute to cultural change. Hence, we can learn a lot about the emergence, development and consequences of this class of broad and transformative ‘social innovations’ from social movement research.”

EaSI is already connected to some social movements and trends:

Social dialogue

“Social dialogue is defined by the ILO to include all types of negotiation, consultation or simply the exchange of information between, or among, representatives of governments, employers and workers, on issues of common interest relating to economic and social policy. It can exist as a tripartite process, with the government as an official party to the dialogue or it may consist of bipartite relations only between labour and management (or trade unions and employers’ organizations), with or without indirect government involvement. Social dialogue processes can be informal or institutionalised and often it is a combination of the two. It can take place at the national, regional or at an enterprise level. It can be inter-professional, sectoral or a combination of these.

The main goal of social dialogue itself is to promote consensus building and democratic involvement among the main stakeholders in the world of work. Successful social dialogue structures and processes have the potential to resolve important economic and social issues, encourage good governance, advance social and industrial peace and stability and boost economic progress.”

The European social dialogue is one of the best ways to achieve European fundamental values: social progress and solidarity, cohesion and democracy, sustainable development.
