Within its borders, EU action complements national governments' policies on social protection and inclusion. The EU Cohesion Policy covers social inclusion, while fighting poverty and discrimination. The European pillar of social rights promotes equal opportunities, access to the labour market, fair working conditions, adequate and accessible social protection and inclusion. To tackle discrimination arising from racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation and sex, the EU relies on racial and employment equality legislation.
Across the globe, the EU acts to address inequality through the European development policy, while closer to its borders it works through the European Neighbourhood Policy and the Enlargement policy. Action focuses on pro-poor fiscal policies, strengthened governance, fair and transparent tax systems, public sector management, domestic resource mobilisation and adequate and sustainable social protection, all of which contribute to tackle inequalities.
