The Costs of Europe 27 Reluctance to introduce expansive social policy We have seen that Majone underscores regulatory growth within the Community. He points out that in 1970 the EU produced 25 Directives and 600 Regulations, and by 1985 it produced annually, on average, 80 Directives and 1,500 Regulations (Majone, 1998: 16). It is unfortunate that Majone fails to categorise this regulatory growth. Instead he lumps policies on the environment, education and research, tourism, telecommunications, civil protection and health-and-safety at work under the same title: social policies (Majone, 1998: 16–17, 30).

He points to a number of developments which, he says, illustrate this absence of consensus regarding social Europe. These include the UK ‘opt out’ from the ‘Social Chapter’, the divergence of views between the social partners at European level, the White Paper of June 1994 in which the Social Affairs Commissioner effectively announced the end of the European social legislative agenda and the Lisbon Summit of 1994 where the EU set objects on employment, which were left for the national governments to implement (Blanpain, 1995: 16).

Yet, at the same time, the Commission cooperated with national and local authorities in developing schemes designed to enhance less favoured regions. Devine highlights the irony of these tactics. He stresses that, despite this development effort, the entire project is underpinned by a belief in ‘the market’ as a principle of governance – a belief which ensures that all regions, core or peripheral, are inevitably locked in competitive loggerheads in which social dumping threatens to incrementally erode the entire project (Devine, 1996: 7–11).
