The Mutual Information System on Social Protection of the Council of Europe (MISSCEO) started its work in 1999 and aims to promote a regular exchange of information on social protection in member states of the Council of Europe that are not members of the EU's MISSOC network.


MISSCEO is based on the close co-operation between a network of national correspondents and the Department of the European Social Charter of the Council of Europe. MISSCEO now counts a total of 12 states: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Moldova, Montenegro, the Russian Federation, Serbia, “the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”, Turkey and Ukraine. 3 observer countries, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, also recently participated.

MISSCEO produces regularly updated comparatives tables on social protection systems under the form of database and in pdf format. It has also started to identify recent trends and developments in social protection across the MISSCEO countries (MISSCEO Info 2016).

The comparative tables summarise the social protection legislation using a set of standardised descriptors. They form an essential complement to the comparative tables of the MISSOC, Mutual Information System on Social Protection in the member states of the EU, the EEA and in Switzerland.

 

MISSCEO provides information about national social protection systems in 12 countries: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Moldova, Montenegro, the Russian Federation, Serbia, “the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”, Turkey and Ukraine. 3 observer countries, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, also recently participated.
