[en] Health is a key component of the Economy of Wellbeing, the new horizontal approach to political decision-making and governance adopted by the Council of the European Union on 24 October 2019. Building on the principles of the European Pillar of Social Rights and on the Health in All Policies and One Health approaches, it seeks to strengthen the role of employment, social, health and education policies within the European Semester. Nevertheless, “wellbeing” acquires a new resonance for the post COVID-19 “Economy of Recovery”. Against this backdrop, this paper aims to provide a critical review of the effectiveness of the European Semester as a governance tool for the “wellbeing” policies from the perspective of EU law and policy- making and enforcement. It also examines future prospects in the light of the multiple impacts of the current health and socioeconomic crises.
