It was for the European Semester 2017/2018 that the European Commission included the European Pillar of Social Rights for the first time after its proclamation. In this framework, the Social Scoreboard, which accompanies the pillar, has the potential to outline social problems across the EU. However, this potential is not fully exploited. The member states are reluctant to use it. Budgetary objectives as well as those related to increasing the member states’ economic competitiveness are dominating social objectives. Only if social objectives are in line with the aims of economic coordination, they have a chance to be included into reform recommendations. To achieve the “social ‘triple A’ rating” (Jean-Claude Juncker), the aims set out in the pillar as well as the process of coordination in social policy need to become more binding.
