What is the EAPN Poverty Watch Report?
The EAPN Poverty Watch Reports do not attempt to provide a comprehensive academic report on poverty. They start from the reality of people experiencing poverty and the perspectives of the NGOs that support and work with them: our 31 EAPN national networks and 13 European Organization members. Their main objectives are to:
- To monitor key trends and policy on poverty and social exclusion in Europe
- To raise awareness about priority issues and impact/reality for people experiencing poverty
- To propose concrete recommendations backed by example and evidence
Poverty Watch Reports 2020
The Poverty Watches 2020 have an additional goal: on the one hand, to present the current trends of poverty and social exclusion, and additionally to reflect on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and government measures, on people experiencing poverty and social exclusion.
An EU summary Poverty Watch with recommendations will be published shortly.
