Was the impact of the recession stronger in countries with higher tax ratios? Did the tax policy choices take into account the existing level of taxation?

Waste opportunities
Past and future climate benefits from better municipal waste management in Europe EEA Report No 3/2011 Using a life-cycle perspective, this report analyses the greenhouse gas emissions from municipal solid waste management in the EU, plus Norway and Switzerland. It makes clear that better management of municipal solid waste can reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly. But to tap this potential, the EU’s waste directives must be implemented fully — in particular the landfill directive.

Seas for life
Protected — sustainable — shared European seas by 2020 We all benefit from our seas and oceans. In addition to the more traditional uses like transport, fishing, aquaculture, tourism and recreation, we now have the extraction of minerals, oil and gas, and the use of the sea as a site for wind farms and communication cables. We also enjoy the beauty of open seascapes and distant horizons, the fresh air and the clean coastal and marine environments. Finally, seas support a wealth of wildlife and perform a vital function in keeping our climate stable.

This handbook is designed to help public authorities successfully plan and implement GPP. It explains the possibilities offered by European Union law in a practical way, and looks at simple and effective approaches to greening contracts.

Successful European nanotechnology research
Outstanding science and technology to match the needs of future society In order to think ever bigger, you have to go ever smaller. Science today is looking for the key to greater achievements by turning its full attention to the manipulation of structures in the order of a few millionths of a millimetre, the nano domain. However, this new industrial revolution implies the mastery of an intricate web of interdisciplinary connections, as demonstrated throughout the research projects of the different clusters described in this publication. Nanomedicine is represented by its three main branches: diagnostics, drug delivery and regenerative medicine.

The e-passport story and other successful examples of EU-funded innovation presented in this brochure share a common feature: the combination of funding they received. EU funds, as well as national and regional funds combined with private investment were enablers of these chains of innovation.

Crime and deviance in the EU
Key findings from EU funded social sciences and humanities research projects In a changing European political landscape, where borders have progressively been erased and people’s mobility has become a reality, crime is a fully fledged European phenomenon, which needs to be analysed from a European and interdisciplinary perspective, within the umbrella of socioeconomic and humanities disciplines. The European Commission has funded several research projects in the field of crime and deviance, through the socioeconomic sciences and humanities programme, within the sixth and seventh framework programme for research and technological development. This policy review summarises main findings of those projects, with the aim of providing a useful tool for policymakers, practitioners and researchers in the field of crime and deviance

Towards responsible research and innovation in the information and communication technologies and security technologies fields
This publication, introduced and edited by René von Schomberg, consists of a series of research articles reflecting on how to proceed towards responsible research and innovation in the information and communication technologies and security technology fields. The authors who contributed to this publication are coordinators of or participants in major FP7 projects funded under the science in society programme. A total of 10 projects have inspired the authors to reflect and address various governance and ethics issues underlying the responsible development of these new technologies. A deliberative approach to the responsible development of these technologies implies inclusive governance, based on broad stakeholder involvement, public debate and early societal intervention in research and innovation, among others, by means of ethics assessments and various technology and privacy impact assessments.

Migrants in an irregular situation employed in domestic work:
Fundamental rights challenges for the European Union and its Member States Chilling accounts of the abuse of domestic workers’ fundamental rights have surfaced recently in Europe. To help those charged with protecting these rights, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) prepared this research, the first to analyse on the ground the situation of migrant domestic workers who are present in the EU in an irregular situation. Through interviews with migrants and representatives of organisations who may come to their aid, the report explores the heightened risks of abuse and exploitation faced by these workers, overwhelmingly female, whose fears of detection and deportation hinder their ability to access rights from healthcare to claiming unpaid wages.

European drug prevention quality standards
A manual for prevention professionals Prevention is one of the first approaches to be mentioned when public debate and policy address drug use and drug-related problems. Regularly, measures of prevention are presented as a means to overcome existing or future problems. However, evidence of ‘what works’ in practice is often overlooked. Similarly, research has shown examples where preventive efforts produced no or detrimental effects. This publication will help steer efforts in the right direction.

Compendium of practice on non-discrimination/equality mainstreaming
Non-discrimination/equality mainstreaming is the systematic incorporation of non-discrimination and equality concerns into all stages of the policy process. It is implemented on the six grounds of gender, racial or ethnic origin, disability, age, religion or belief, and sexual orientation. But non-discrimination/equality mainstreaming is a challenging concept to implement. This compendium is designed to assist policymakers and programme managers, in all policy fields, to implement this mainstreaming as an integral part of their work. It offers guidance on supporting and implementing mainstreaming and sets out a broad range of practice examples from different Member States.

Promoting ethnic entrepreneurship in European cities
European cities are increasingly faced with the challenge of integrating people from very diverse backgrounds. As migrant populations increase, so do the opportunities for new business, job creation and international competitiveness. This report shows that ethnic entrepreneurs, however small their venture, contribute to the economic growth of their local area, often rejuvenate neglected crafts and trades, and participate increasingly in the provision of higher value-added services. They can help to promote stronger trading links with their home countries and foster social cohesion in their host communities. The report examines what city authorities are doing to attract ethnic entrepreneurs into their established business communities, and to facilitate the business environment — from the purely financial to providing training and advice.

Employment and social developments in Europe 2011
The economic, financial and sovereign debt crises and subsequent austerity measures underline the need for a more integrated approach to employment and social policy. This review merges two previous European Commission reports on these areas. It begins with an overview of the current European employment and social situation before looking at recent shifts in Europe’s job structure and in income inequality. The report then examines patterns of poverty and social exclusion in Europe and the phenomenon of in-work poverty. Issues of active ageing, intra-EU labour mobility and the impact of enlargement are also covered.
