Employment and Social Developments in Europe (ESDE) review
On Monday 5 July, the European Commission published its latest edition of the “Employment and Social Developments in Europe (ESDE) review”.
This report provides evidence on the widening of regional inequalities related to the Covid-19 pandemic. For example, job losses were on average five times greater in rural areas than in cities.
This report also shows that Member States with a strong social dialogue proved to be able to quickly design and deploy measures in response to the crisis, such as short-time work schemes.
