On the 4th of March 2021 the European Commission launched its Action Plan for the European Pillar of Social Rights. The European Pillar of Social Rights (sometimes referred to as the “Social Pillar” or just the “Pillar”) was proclaimed in 2017. It contains 20 principles to deliver a more social Europe, which the EU and its Member States committed to implementing. Principle 17 of the Social Pillar is specifically about fostering the social inclusion of persons with disabilities.
This Action Plan sees the Commission set out its plan for how to advance social progress on the Pillar’s 20 principles.
