The Consequences of the European Integration for Polish social policy

Gertruda Uścińska , Maciej Żukowski


The arti­cle dis­cusses the impact of Euro­pean inte­gra­tion on social pol­icy in Poland. Though social pol­icy remains mainly the com­pe­tence of the EU mem­ber states, EU impact on social pol­icy has been clear, already since Poland’s prepa­ra­tion to the mem­ber­ship, thus for more than 20 years. Free move­ment of work­ers was the most dif­fi­cult issue dur­ing the acces­sion nego­ti­a­tions, due to fears of the old mem­ber states. Dur­ing the inte­gra­tion, Pol­ish law, espe­cially in the area of labour law, was adjusted to the EU law. Poland entered the EU sys­tem of social secu­rity coor­di­na­tion An indi­rect impact of inte­gra­tion has been sub­stan­tial, espe­cially through con­tribut­ing to catch­ing up in the level of development.
