    Social Europe - Aiming for inclusive growth - Annual report of the Social Protection Committee on the social situation in the European Union (2014)

    The report delivers on the core task of the Social Protection Committee (SPC) to monitor the social situation in the Member States and the European Union. It is prepared by the Secretariat of the Committee and its Indicators' Sub-group. The report provides an analysis of recent trends in the social situation in the Member States and the European Union and shows that there has been little improvement in the overall situation in the EU, although trends are more mixed than in preceding years. Continuing disparities occur across Member States and the situation is worsening in several. The report focuses on the results from the latest edition of the Social Protection Performance Monitor (SPPM), which is based on a set of key indicators for monitoring developments in the social situation.

    Approches proposées pour la mesure de l’impact social

    L’argent investi dans une entreprise sociale doit être utilisé de manière efficace pour la réalisation de sa mission sociale. De même, lorsque des fonds publics sont utilisés,  ’obtention efficace de résultats ou les économies
    dans les dépenses publiques doivent être démontrées. Une méthode cohérente de mesure de l’impact social est donc indispensable. En octobre 2012, un sous-groupe d’experts de mesure de l’impact social a été mis en place par le GECES (groupe d’experts sur l’entrepreneuriat social de la Commission européenne) afin de dispenser des conseils sur une méthode qui pourrait être appliquée dans le secteur européen de l’entrepreneuriat social. Les gestionnaires de fonds sociaux pourront décider s’ils vont investir dans une entreprise spécifique, et les investisseurs et les organismes d’octroi de subventions pourront savoir si les entreprises qu’ils ont soutenues ont atteint les objectifs sociaux fixés. Toutefois, le champ d’application est plus large, à la fois en interne et en externe. Cette publication présente les approches proposées de mesure utilisées pour l’évaluation et le suivi.
    Cette publication est disponible en version électronique en anglais, français, italien, allemand, polonais et espagnol.

    Facing the crisis - The coping strategies of unemployed people in Europe

    This report explores how those households that are particularly exposed to poverty and long-term unemployment manage to deal with the blows dealt by the economic crisis. It asks the key questions: is unemployment in a period of crisis really the cause of spiralling breaks in social links, or can it also be the start of a process of coping, based on strengthening those links? If so, to what extent? It draws on the findings of three studies, both qualitatively and quantitatively. This publication is available in printed and electronic format in English.
