Abstract

The new economic governance of the Eurozone has heavily impacted on social rights, in particular in the most indebted Member States. This chapter reconstructs the logic behind the attack upon social rights by adopting a materialist approach (i.e., critique of the political economy) and it provides a strong criticism of the functionalist attitude adopted by EU institutions in the aftermath of the crisis.

Keywords: Social Rights; Critique of Political Economy; Functionalism; Loi Travail
