The chapter concerns the negotiations of the Services Directive, which has become known as one of the most contentious pieces of EU policy negotiated over the last decade. While the proposed Directive directly related to the Single European Market (SEM), the ensuing debate focused upon the impact it would have on the potential to undermine the European social dimension. The chapter analyses the negotiations of the proposed directive from 2004-2006. In particular it pays attention to the positions and contribution of the CEE states during the negotiations.
