Poverty and Deprivation in Europe

This chapter examines the development of social inclusion processes and indicators in the EU, and how the role played by non-monetary deprivation indicators in that context has evolved. In doing so, the aim is to bring out the rationale(s) underlying this development, and the analytical and practical challenged it faces. This serves to set the stage for the subsequent in-depth analysis of deprivation and the role of deprivation indicators in the rest of the book. The chapter begins with a brief review of the development of the EU's engagement with social policy, then focuses on the processes it developed around 2000 to engage more actively with poverty and social inclusion. Against this background, it considers the adoption of a set of common indicators, on the way deprivation indicators have recently been incorporated into that set of indicators, and finally how even more recently they have formed one element in the EU's 2020 poverty reduction target.

Keywords:   social inclusion processes, European Union, non-monetary deprivation indicators, social policy, poverty reduction
