SOCIAL LAW – PUBLIC LAW IN A EUROPEAN CONTEXT?

Abstract


The paper addresses the issue of whether social law can be perceived as a separate and specific field of law and whether it can be defined as a purely public branch of law.

Selected decisions from the ECJ are used to demonstrate a shift in the perception of Member States’ autonomy to set their own social policy.
