Social inclusion and the fight against poverty

Employment and social policy

Social inclusion and the fight against poverty are an integral part of the European Union's growth and employment objectives. Coordination of the national social protection and inclusion policies is based on a process of mutual exchange and learning, better known as the "open method of coordination" (OMC). In addition to eliminating poverty and social exclusion, this process will hinge in the years to come on providing adequate and sustainable pensions and on developing accessible, high-quality and sustainable health care and long-term care.
