EAPN has been constantly bringing our work and arguments to the attention of policy makers at EU and national level, asking that employment policy deliver for the most excluded, notably long term unemployed and undeclared workers, and demanding that our views are taken into consideration.
In this perspective, EAPN has been doing a regular review of the National Action Plans on Employment (see details below), and implemented a regular lobbying on these issues (open letters, Press releases, participation in meeting and conferences…) which has been implemented at EU level by EAPN EU as well as national networks at national level.
