Abstract

The 10 former communist countries from Central and Eastern Europe have inherited similar social protection systems, specific to an ethatist economy, and faced similar issues along the transition to market economy. Distinct in Europe through common traits, the new-comers in the European Union, especially the 10 from Central and Eastern Europe, encompass the fifth submodel of the European social model. Ageing of the population, conservatory management of the pensions fund (aversion for risk, regarding the public funds transfer into private pensions fund), migration of qualified work force, increasing unemployment rate represent a wide variety of threats which brought to the public attention the need to reform the social model of the post-communist countries.
