Social Impact of the Crisis and Developments in the Light of Fiscal Consolidation Measures.Authors: FRAZER Hugh, MARLIER Eric.
Abstract: This short report was produced in the context of the European Union's work on social inclusion issues. It focuses on the social impact of the crisis and developments in the light of fiscal consolidation measures in the 27 EU countries. It summarises the main findings from an analysis of country reports prepared by members of the EU Network of Independent Experts on Social Inclusion in the Autumn 2010 in their respective countries. Drawing on both the independent experts' country analyses and the Network Core Team's overall assessment, it also puts forward a series of suggestions for monitoring and strengthening the social inclusion dimension of fiscal consolidation measures at both national and EU levels.
