EAPN Ireland Publishes Report from Building Social Europe Conference

The European Anti Poverty Network (EAPN) organised an international conference in Dublin to further its vision for the legacy of the 2010 European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion, in the context of the EU’s priorities for the next decade. The objective of this conference was to present concrete proposals for building a social Europe with the capacity to end poverty and social exclusion, and make a real difference to the 85 million Europeans who live everyday at risk of poverty.

The conference set out to:

1. Take stock of the European Union’s contribution to ending poverty and social exclusion.
2. Take forward EAPN’s proposals for improving the social dimension of the EU 2020 strategy.
3. Provide an opportunity for a range of stakeholders, including people experiencing poverty,
to input on how the legacy of the Year should be realised.
