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 produces regularly updated comparatives tables on social protection systems under the form of database which has been updated with the 2021 data. The information is available in both pdf and excel format..
It also identifies recent trends and developments in social protection across the MISSCEO countries (MISSCEO Info 2021).
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 on national social protection systems in the countries concerned.
The EU's Mutual Information System on Social Protection (MISSOC) provides information about national social protection systems in 31 countries: the 27 EU Member States plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
The MISSCEO network meets once per year to ensure the quality of the contributions to the tables and to exchange information between the states covered by the tables.
