The economic unification of Europe has created a lot of victims. The realization of the single market has taken place without any adjusting or accompanying economic and social policies. Its effects on social and human relations go far beyond the economic and commercial areas its authors had in mind. It has in fact led to changes in European society that are so far-reaching that they could very well be characterized as mutations.

This book looks at the phenomenon of social dumping in the wider context of liberalized social competition as steered by the European Union. It contains a number of testimonies by people who actively fight social dumping, with special attention paid to the harrowing dumping practices in the road transport sector. Some of the authors also examine the phenomenon of social dumping in relation to compliance with the fundamental right of all workers to respect for their dignity as human beings. In this respect, the underlying question is whether, by tolerating legislation that allows human dignity to be violated by social dumping, the European and national legislators in fact infringe on this key fundamental right.

This book is intended for practitioners, academics, researchers and policy-makers working in the area of social policy.

With academic contributions from Marc Rigaux, Wolfgang Daübler, Jan Buelens and Lies Michielsen, Herwig Verschueren, Barbara Kresal, Gian Guido Balandi, Fieke Van Overbeeke, Ferran Camas Roda and Walter Gagawczuk. The book concludes with a number of testimonies from the field.
