Observatory of the crisis
> WHAT IS THE OBSERVATORY ON THE IMPACT OF THE CRISIS?
The Economic crisis in the EU is having devastating effects
on the economic, political and social structures that have been built in our societies over the last decades.
Despite the fact that European Union’s “Europe 2020” strategy has made social inclusion 1 of the 3 pillars bringing Europe out the crisis, we denounce that current economic, social and political policies adopted by Member States and the EU may lead to an increase in the numbers so of people experiencing social exclusion in Europe.
We created a monitoring tool: the EDF observatory on the impact of the economic crisis on the rights of persons with disabilities.
This will monitor, through the collection of adequate examples by EDF members, the measures taken by EU member states, European Union institutions and International financial institutions.
> PREVIOUS INITIATIVES
EDF is concerned by the economic crisis since it all started;
we adopted some important documents within the disability movement.
