Hide Synopsis  
Title Balkans Dictionary of Social Security Terminology 
Description An English version of the Dictionary will be prepared and then translated to all the languages in the Region. The idea is to avoid different interpretations of social security terms. This will help notably civil servants to better understand social security terminology, as used in the CoE and the EC. It also will facilitate social security communication between the beneficiary states and the accurate writing of legal instruments (notably bilateral or multilateral agreements).
The Dictionary is notably intended for the use of civil administrations but can also be of interest of academia and other sectors (such as private insurance funds, etc). 
Status Completed 
Date 29/11/2006 - 31/12/2007 
Location Not applicable, Others
Countries CoE Members: Albania / Bosnia and Herzegovina / Croatia / Serbia / ''the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia''
