The Better Regulation Watchdog Network has joined over 200 European civil society organisations and trade unions in signing a common appeal to European leaders:
“The Europe we want: just, sustainable, democratic and inclusive”.
The Financial Times has published the UNI Europa letter to the editor, in response to a recent article about Better Regulation.
The EU is a community founded on fundamental rights and the rule of law. This is one of Europe’s strengths and has made it a global leader and standard setter in many areas. European regulations are a safety net, designed to protect workers, citizens and the environment, and have drastically improved quality of life in Europe. However, nowadays regulation is portrayed by many, including a number of EU member states, as red tape and a burden.
In this paper we propose a set of key measures the EU should adopt to help fix the system as well a number of areas where urgent action is required.
