Has the EU Fulfilled Its Commitment to Reduce Poverty Significantly at the 2010 Horizon?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In this contribution we examine if the goal set at the introduction of the Lisbon Strategy in 2000 to contribute to a significant reduction of poverty in the European Union has been achieved. In a first step the paper reviews the evolution of poverty in Europe during the Lisbon Strategy period in empirical and policy terms. In a second step, we will focus on the specific case of the ‘working poor’ issue: that is the specific category of poor active persons. That issue is of particular interest in that it is at the nexus between employment and poverty and is thus especially concerned with the increasing tensions between work and welfare policies. The latter is at the core of both national and EU level processes also at EU level through the soft and cooperative processes (Open Methods of Coordination) in the Employment and Social Inclusion fields. We will also assess the challenges raised by the impact of the current economic/systemic crisis on the European social model(s) and the tensions between work and welfare.
