Authors: FRAZER Hugh, MARLIER Eric.

Abstract: Members of the EU Network of Independent Experts on Social Inclusion assessed, from a social inclusion perspective, their countries’ National Reform Programmes (NRP) and - when available Social Strategic Reports. In particular, they assessed the extent to which the measures outlined in the NRPs (and SSRs) are likely to ensure progress towards the achievement of the Europe 2020’s social inclusion objectives and target. This short report summarises the main findings of the independent experts’ country analyses. It also puts forward concrete suggestions for strengthening the social inclusion dimension of the NRP process in future.
