A Step forward for Social Rights? EAPN Assessment of the 2019 Country-Specific Recommendations

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Aug 06, 2019 | European Anti-Poverty Network,

In this publication, the European Anti-Poverty Network celebrates the return of growth, increased employment and poverty reduction in many EU member states, but points to gaps in the coverage of social protection systems and access to services. In-work-poverty and poverty among certain disadvantaged groups, persists. With 113 million people still in poverty and widening social gaps across the EU, the paper calls for urgent action to ensure that the EAPN’s Country-Specific macroeconomic and social Recommendations (CSRs) translate into social rights and integrated antipoverty strategies focusing on initial education, lifelong learning, labour markets, and social protection.
