Explainer on Poverty and Inequality in the EU

Published in 2014 by the the European Anti Poverty Network (EAPN), theĀ Explainer on Poverty and Inequality in the EU sets out to provide a simple introduction to the poverty debate.

It focuses primarily on current perspectives on the nature and extent of poverty, its causes and its links to inequality. It explains how poverty is understood and measured currently in the EU, and highlights some of the shortcomings of these approaches.
