UE a identificat restabilirea creşterii economice şi furnizarea de locuri de muncă mai numeroase şi mai bune drept factori-cheie pentru lupta împotriva sărăciei. Pentru a a oferi sprijin în vederea atingerii acestui obiectiv, Comisia Europeană propune crearea unei Platforme europene de combatere a sărăciei şi a excluziunii sociale. Această comunicare expune provocările pe care le prezintă sărăcia şi excluziunea şi descrie contribuţia diferitelor politici la reducerea sărăciei şi la creşterea incluziunii. Aceasta se continuă cu identificarea unei serii de acţiuni asociate şi cu o explicaţie privind conceperea şi conţinutul platformei. Prezenta publicaţie este disponibilă în format tipărit în toate limbile oficiale ale UE.
What defines poverty? The EU-level policy standard is that people are at risk of poverty if they have an income of 60 % or less than the national median household income. Poverty means a daily struggle to buy food and clothes. It means living in substandard housing or not even having a roof over one’s head.
Europe is one of the world’s richest regions with a diverse and sophisticated economy that provides a high standard of living. The wealth Europe has generated allows many of its citizens to enjoy good quality healthcare, education and social assistance. Nevertheless, a huge number of people are not able to share the fruits of this success. It is estimated that the European Union is home to about 84 million people who are at risk of poverty and social exclusion.
Issue 24 of Social Agenda focuses on the situation of Roma in the EU and on the most effective ways to promote their inclusion in society. It also examines the need to improve and adapt the skills of Europe’s workforce to respond to future job market demands. The issue looks at the social costs of the economic crisis and introduces the European Progress Microfinance Facility, aimed at those who wish to start or expand a small business. The magazine also reports on European citizens' perceptions of gender equality and on the achievements of the European social dialogue. It is available in English, French and German.
Solidarity is one of the guiding principles of the European Union, meaning that all citizens should be able to share in the benefits of prosperous times, while also sharing the burden of times of difficulty. Yet nearly 80 million Europeans live below the poverty line, and many face serious obstacles in accessing employment, education, housing, social and financial services.
