Kurzfassung auf Deutsch:

In the Canadian discussion, the EU model ("Social Europe") has inspired a range of proposals for restructuring Canada. The article gives an introduction to "where the social dimension and social policy are at" in the EU. Then the political relevance of the EU experience for Canada is explored whether this be for a Québécois independence perspective or for a Canadian interprovincial−compact as outlined in 1996 by Thomas Courchene. Finally, I shall conclude with some remarks on "globalization and the welfare state" − a powerfully related issue, wherein welfare states can turn out to be foundations for both opening up and thence ensuring the openness of western economies for "embedded liberalism" - as well as for "re−embedding liberalism" - as against being perceived purely as the inevitable victims of an unstoppable "march of [the forces of] globalization" (Thomas Courchene), as has been most often envisioned.
