SPC Annual report 2016
As each year, the SPC has prepared its annual overview on the social situation in the EU and the developments in social protection policies based on the Social Protection Performance Monitor (SPPM) and Member States’ reporting. It analyses the progress towards the Europe 2020 target on reducing poverty and social exclusion together with the latest social trends to watch. The most recent social policy developments in Europe are also reported on as well as the key structural social challenges currently faced by each Member State.
The main messages of the report were endorsed by the Council of the EU on 13 October 2016 (http://data.consilium.europa.eu/doc/document/ST-12606-2016-INIT/en/pdf)
