European minimum income and poverty indicators

Public Hearing - Brussels, Belgium

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.


28 May 2013 from 9:30 to 13:00 at the EESC, room 62, rue Belliard, 99 – 1040 Brussels
