This chapter addresses, in a new fashion, the long-standing problem of the relationship between the ‘economic’ and the ‘social’ in Europe before and after the Maastricht Treaty. The authors argue in particular that the current - problematic - state of affairs of the relationship between the two fundamental elements of European integration has been caused by an imperfect compromise between two competing constitutional conceptions. The weakness of this compromise is well reflected in the inadequacy of the measures enacted to counter the economic crisis. To substantiate this argument the authors analyse, in the last part of the chapter, the three countermoves of the Commission: the European Pillar of Social Rights, the revision of the Posted Workers Directive and the idea of an European Unemployment Scheme.
