Public Procurement and Labour in the EU (2010:3)

Is it permissible, according to EU law, to take social considerations into account in the field of public procurement? Could one, for instance, promote gender equality, integration of disabled persons and good working conditions? The authors of the report Public Procurement and Labour in the EU believes that this is the case, but argues that Sweden could use this scope better than today.

The report is in Swedish, but contains a summary in English.

The report is part of the research project Social Europe and was presented at the seminar Public Procurement and Labour in the EU - What room for social consideration?
