Can Europe 2020 be made fit for purpose to deliver on poverty?

European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) holds seminar and roundtable on burning topic: How will the Europe 2020 midterm review reduce poverty and inequality?

Brussels, 03 October 2014 – EAPN organised today a seminar and roundtable on the key challenge facing the midterm review of the Europe 2020 Strategy: in a context of failure of EU2020’s social targets and growing disaffection towards the EU, i.e. how can the midterm review reverse the trend and effectively reduce poverty and inequality? EAPN’s position paper on the midterm review and its assessment of the 2014 National Reform Programmes (NRP) presented in the seminar contributed to enrich the debate.
