Each year, the ESN European Semester Group follows the European Commission’s cycle of economic policy coordination with EU Member States known as the European Semester and produces a report based on a questionnaire completed by public social services authorities on the social situation in European countries with a particular focus on social services.

These country profiles identify the most important common challenges facing social services as reported by ESN members from the 20 EU countries who responded to the questionnaire, relating to three principles of the European Pillar of Social Rights and makes recommendations for the 2023 European Semester. The full report, with cross-country analysis of all the participating countries is available here.
