This paper identifies four roles of contemporary European Employers` Organisations. European Employers` Organisations are lobbyists in Brussels that represent the interests of their members, seeking to influence institutions. European Employers` Organisations are reluctant social partners that engage with labour unions, though mostly with the aim to avoid binding regulation. European Employers` Organisations are service providers, amongst others informing members about EU legislative and programmatic developments. Finally, European Employers` Organisations are standard setters in Europe, focussing on voluntary, flexible norms and codes of conduct.
