An Open Method of Coordination in a Transnational Social Movement: Multilevel Governance and the Struggle for a Social Europe - This article explores the way that Multi-Level Governance (Mlg) has, or has not, opened up a new Political Opportunity Structure within the European Union which transnational social and political actors can utilise to advance the project for a "Social Europe". It focuses specifically on the ‘European Marches against Unemployment, Job Insecurity and Exclusions’ which has emerged to challenge the labour market and welfare state restructuring which has resulted from the Lisbon Strategy to achieve a specifically European social model of development in the context of neoliberal globalisation. The article outlines the learning processes through which the EM Network developed an autonomous agenda and a contentious repertoire of action. It concludes by suggesting that the struggle for a "Social Europe", as conducted by the EM Network, was waged in and against the structures of Mlg and can be understood as an open method of coordination within an emergent transnational social movement. Keywords: multilevel governance; social movements; social Europe; Lisbon Strategy; transnational participation
