BSDSS – Building the Social Dialogue in the Sport Sector

  • Promoter: The European Association of Sport Employers (EASE)
  • Duration: 12 months (01/09/2003 to 31/08/2004)
  • Partnership: 12 partners (Social Partners and EU Networks)
  • EU programme: Directorate General Employment, Call for proposal VS/2003/003-DGEMPL/D/2-S
  • Scope: Sport and Active leisure sector

As a consequence of the former project ‘Preparing for a Social Dialogue in the Sport Sector’, supported by the European Commission (VS/2001/0707) it was crucial to provide to all actors of the social dialogue in the sport sector in European countries an answer to the needs corresponding to the level of development of the social dialogue in their countries.
The general purpose of the BSDSS project was to implement the social dialogue in the sport sector in Europe.

It was done through 3 kind of initiatives:

  • Regular and interactive information about the social actors and the social dialogue in the sport sector in all the European countries;
  • Research/support to the key countries where the social dialogue has started but not covered the whole sport sector;
  • Implementation of a European social dialogue with the participation of the established European social partner’s organisations and the recognised national social partners in the sport sector.

The main operational objectives of the project were:

  • Promote the social dialogue in all European countries: Develop and strengthen national social actors through European information (with a particular emphasize in the following EU countries: PT, LU, FI, AT, IE, DK and in the applicant countries);
  • Research opportunities to strengthen national social dialogue through European support with a special attention to the following countries: UK, IT, DE, ES and BE.
  • Support social dialogue at the European level
  • Strengthen the European social partners (EASE, Uni-Europa) and increase their representativeness.
  • Start a European social dialogue in the sport sector based on the contribution of established national Social Partners (in SE, NL and FR) and with the participation of the targeted countries (UK, IT, DE, ES and BE).
