The project “DimasoLab” has set out to improve the knowledge of the effects of the Directive relevant for trade unions and workers’ representatives. For this purpose, a network of European experts compiled 12 country reports. The reports provided information on the country specific labour relation systems, disclosure of non-financial information before the Directive and the transposition process of the Directive into national law. Experts from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy and Spain compiled five longer country reports. Along with these, experts from Austria, Denmark, Great Britain, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden conducted seven shorter country reports. All country reports have been condensed into a synthesis report. Drawing on the synthesis report, the most relevant factors determining the impact of the Directive on labour relations were identified. These provided the basis to develop four scenarios.
