    We shall begin the paper with a quick reminder of the different steps of Social Europe to date, with an aim of placing the framework of the now-dominant discourse of the impossibility to adopt constraining legislation in Europe. Then, we shall corroborate this affirmation quantitatively and will demonstrate that we do not find this in figures. Then, we shall analyze three cases (revision of the regulation 1408/71, information/consultation at national level, anti-discrimination directives in terms of political process and content. The outcome is all of them - despite the requirement of unanimity for the anti-discrimination and the 1408/71 proposals – were adopted, and in all three cases bring substantial changes for some member States and cannot be considered as minimal directives.
