This EU Poverty Watch report captures the main findings, messages and recommendations from 24 national Poverty Watches produced by our members. These reports start from the reality of people experiencing poverty and the perspectives of the NGOs that work with them. They aim to monitor key trends and policy, raise awareness about the reality for people experiencing poverty and propose concrete recommendations backed by examples.
This year, our EU Poverty Watch report focuses on the multiple relentless crises that have exacerbated poverty and inequalities: the soaring inflation and the rising cost of living, the ongoing war in Ukraine and the long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. These crises have exacerbated our society’s pre-existing, structural and systemic deficiencies and call for strong structural responses.
EAPN recognises that these are Unequal Times of Crises.
