Press release: EAPN calls on the EU to fundamentally re-think its economic and social policy

The shocking official figures of 72 million people living their daily lives in or at risk of poverty shows that the EU has failed in reaching the vision of a social Europe. This is why the participants to the Toledo EAPN General Assembly last week urged the European Union to “fundamentally rethink its economic and social policy if it is to achieve its stated objective to make decisive impact on the eradication of poverty by 2010”.
