The European Social Model in facing crucial challenges to its founding concepts, stressed by a decline of representativity of trade unions and the lack of legal certainty for their action.

In this lecture Professor Dorssemont will illustrate the interactions between the jurisprudence of the CJEU and the ECHR in the field of collective labour law. The aim is to investigate the uncertain path along the affirmation at European level of the right to collective bargaining, confronting it with the founding fundamental freedoms within the European internal market.
