Europe 2020 Shadow Report 2013. Missing the train for inclusive growth. Time is running out

From the very beginning of the Europe 2020 Strategy, Caritas Europa has been actively involved in promoting and monitoring the implementation of the Strategy’s Social Objectives.

This is why Caritas Europa takes an active role in the Shadow reporting process. Caritas’ efforts in monitoring the social reality in different EU countries and in analysing the outcomes of the policies are presented in this 3rd edition of the Shadow Report on Europe 2020 Strategy. It is focusing on the challenges that should be urgently tackled in order to reverse the trend of growing poverty, inequality and social exclusion in Europe.

The publication of this Shadow Report is accompanied by 23 individual Country Reports which are available on the Caritas Europa publication website.
