Brussels - Miércoles 16 Octubre 2019 - Going Beyond the Data – the realities of poverty in Europe

The European Parliament’s MEPs Cindy Franssen (EPP) and Pierfrancesco Majorino (S&D) and EAPN will host a Roundtable on the reality of poverty in Europe, organised together with ATD Fourth World, IFSW & Emmaus Europe.

This roundtable aims to help MEPs deconstruct myths and break stereotypes about (people experiencing) poverty, and to build their understandings of the realities of poverty going further than data and statistics.

The event will open with four case studies, bringing the voices of people experiencing poverty directly together with MEPs. The key questions that will be addressed are: What does poverty in Europe look like, and what are the key trends? What progress has been made on poverty levels in Europe in recent years? What role has the Parliament played in this? The European Parliament will respond in the form of interactive discussions.

The context is Europe’s ambition to leave no one behind while making the transition to a more sustainable, carbon neutral economy. People experiencing poverty will need to be protected during this transition, and economic and social rights guaranteed within a more social and sustainable development model.

Places are limited, so please register quickly!
