About Solid

The major political changes which occurred in 2011 and mainly had impact on the South Mediterranean neighborhood, showed the limits of the economic and social policies followed so far and made more obvious the urgent need of institutional reforms.

Since 2008, the European Union has engaged – in the framework of the UfM (Union for the Mediterranean) in a process that associates governments and representatives of employers and employees. This process aims to give a “more effective” role to the social dialogue in the Mediterranean neighborhood.

It is within this framework that the pilot project for the promotion of social dialogue in the Southern Mediterranean neighborhood has been launched.
