    Abstract

    This paper identifies the three frames as being in turn (1) social policy as an adjunct of the internal market, contributing to the equalisation of market conditions and the creation of a ‘level playing field’; (2) a ‘strong’ social policy based on social rights and industrial citizenship, and (3) social policy in partnership with economic policy, promoting productivity and competitiveness through its role in the formation of an adaptable and flexible workforce. Section three of this paper will assess the extent to which each frame can be seen to have been ‘institutionalized’ within the Community system. The focus is on the institutionalization of the current dominant frame-one which arguably marks a shift in the social model and which conceives of social policy as an instrument for adaptability and flexibility. Section four will consider the policy implications of the ascendancy of this frame, and the way in which European social model is being now expressed at Community level. Before this, however, a brief introduction to the institutionalist approach will be provided.
