Countdown to Europe 2020: Towards ‘Appropriate Indicators’ to Measure Poverty Reduction in the EU

CONFERENCE: This capacity-building symposium is organised by The Centre for Parliamentary Studies, and will focus on poverty reduction indicators which seek to raise awareness of poverty reduction as a key policy objective in Europe.

-Gather comparative analytical knowledge to promote poverty reduction as a measurable goal in Europe
-Provide input for 'Appropriate Indicators' which can be politically relevant for future policy initiatives in the field of poverty
-Highlight useful comparative case studies which will add value to the definition of 'Appropriate Indicators' for measuring poverty reduction in Europe
