RILSA | The uncertain fate of the Green Deal for Europe ahead of the European Parliament elections

The article presents the current development of the Green Deal for Europe and its social policy aspects. Farmers' protests have reminded that the measures of the Green Deal for Europe may not be politically viable for Europeans.
