Peer Review in Belgium: Children First – pilot local consultation platforms on child poverty

In May 2014, the Belgian government embarked on funding a year-long pilot project of local ‘consultation platforms’, intended to raise awareness of child poverty, provide parents with information about existing aid channels, and lend support to teachers, care providers and families alike. A study has been commissioned to determine the effectiveness of the pilot platforms. This Peer Review will enable the study’s interim findings to be shared with other Member States.


Peer Review in Austria: The political adequacy of quantitative impact assessment in the social field by means of micro-simulation models

Since July 2013, the SORESI micro-simulation model has been helping Austria’s policy-makers assess the likely impact of proposed policy reforms on the country’s most vulnerable social groups. This Peer Review will look at the benefits SORESI has brought so far, and its findings are also expected to contribute to a possible further refinement of the model, including its use of unemployment or economic growth figures and data on changes in the behaviour of the population.


Peer Review in Slovenia: Long-term care – the problem of sustainable financing

Like most of Europe, Slovenia faces rapid population ageing. This places huge strain on long-term care (LTC) in particular, and the country has no unified system for providing it. To address this deficiency, a new Act on long-term care, personal assistance and long-term care insurance is being drafted. One crucial issue is how to fund LTC in a fair and sustainable way. This Peer Review will enable Slovenia to learn about the experiences of Member States where various different funding arrangements are used – in line with the Social Investment Package (SIP), which emphasises knowledge transfer and mutual learning as a way of ensuring the adequate and sustainable delivery of LTC.


Peer Review in Poland: The Active Ageing Index and its extension to the regional level

The Active Ageing Index (AAI) focuses on the untapped potential of older people, measuring their independence and participation in paid employment and social activities. In 2013, in a unique move, Poland decided to conduct research into the construction of an AAI in all 16 of its provinces (regions). This Peer Review will provide an opportunity to explore how Poland set about this task (methodology), why it took such a step and what benefits it has identified. It will also consider whether such an approach could be usefully applied elsewhere.
