Despite the European Union’s commitment to leave no one behind, millions of people in Europe are falling victim to widening inequalities, the major EU-wide report concludes:
The report shines a light on the impact of rising inequalities on people and planet. It maps the reality of various forms of inequality, both nationally and at the European level. It consists of 15 national reports and 11 thematic reports exploring key dimensions of inequality, including gender, age, disability, ethnicity and homelessness.
Organisations from various sectors of civil society – including environmental, social and development organisations – wrote these reports according to their own perspectives and context in response to a shared set of guiding questions. The information provided by the national reports provided the basis for our analysis of main thematic concerns across the European Union.
The report was conducted by SDG Watch Europe in collaboration with Make Europe Sustainable for All.
