Volume 2 of the 'Education and training monitor 2015' includes twenty-eight individual country reports. It does not aim to provide a description of the national education and training systems, which can already be found in other existing sources. It rather builds on the most up-to-date quantitative and qualitative evidence to present and assess the main recent and ongoing policy measures in each EU Member State, with a focus on developments since mid-2014.

In recent years we have seen an intense debate about trade across the European Union which has some important lessons for EU trade policy. It is clear Europeans want trade to deliver real economic results for consumers, workers and small companies. However, they also believe open markets do not require us to compromise on core principles, like human rights and sustainable development around the world or high quality safety and environmental regulation and public services at home. They also want to know more about trade negotiations carried out in their name. In this new strategy, “Trade for All”, the Commission is adapting its approach to trade policy to take all of these lessons on board. As a result, trade policy will become more responsible, meaning it will be more effective, more transparent and will not only project our interests, but also our values.
