Minimum income schemes are important tools to combat poverty and social exclusion, since they ensure personal security, play a significant role in redistributing wealth and guarantee more solidarity and social justice.
This hearing will reflect on a better measurement of poverty and on the challenges of adopting a European minimum income scheme. It will bring together experts and people involved in advocacy work to contribute to the EESC opinion.
