FRDB-IZA Social Reforms Database



The FRDB-IZA Social Reforms Database, provided by Fondazione Rodolfo DeBendetti and the Institute for the Study of Labour, is a database that aims to develop a comprehensive qualitative database about social reforms in the EU-15 member states (except Luxembourg) over the period 1980-2007. The link on EDAC goes to the preliminary version of the database. FRDB-IZA focuses on two areas of reform: • Employment Protection Legislation (EPL); • Non-Employment Benefits (NEB). The data, in its final version, will cover also a third policy area: Public Pension Systems (PEN).
