The EU's 'social dimension' is a product of the ideology of the 1990s. Its employment field is directed to increase the employability of workers and the adaptability of labor market regimes. The book argues that this social-liberal approach is best explained with a set of ideas strategically advanced by 'thought communities' in the policy process.

Alexander Schellinger studied at Columbia University, USA, and the London School of Economics, and obtained his PhD from the University of Bremen, Germany. He took up his first position at the German Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs. He is currently a policy analyst on European economic and social policy at the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation in Berlin.
