Assuming that the individualisation of social rights is tantamount to the process whereby the derived rights (les droites dérives) and the rights based on family relations and other personal links (marriage, partnership) are being replaced by the proper, direct and individual rights (les droites propres), it can be attested that both international legislation and the national legislations of the European countries display a fairly advanced level of individualisation. The process of individualisation of social rights needs to be understood as taking place through the modifications in the legal provisions that define the personal scope of social protection, provide the qualifying conditions for the entitlement to benefits as well as rules for their calculation and regulate other essential qualities of those benefits. The subject-matter of the process of individualisation of social rights is at the center of attention of a group of academic researchers and experts from numerous European countries.
