Luxembourg: Publications Office of the European Union, 2013 - ISBN 978-92-79-28796-1  - ISSN 1977-9232  - doi: 10.2767/18362




This Synthesis Report has been produced by the Network Core Team (NCT) on the basis of the experts’ reports covering the 27 EU Member States. The report begins by summarising the main findings of the experts’ country analyses and then, drawing on these assessments and the NCT’s overall assessment, it puts forward concrete suggestions to improve the so far very limited implementation of the Recommendation. The main part of the report starts with an analysis of the extent to which Member States have developed integrated comprehensive active inclusion strategies. Then, it assesses how effective Member States have been in developing measures under each of the three strands. Next, it looks at the resourcing of active inclusion measures by Member States and by EU Structural Funds and examines the arrangements in place to monitor their implementation. Finally, it synthesises the experts’ suggestions made to strengthen the implementation of the Recommendation at national and EU levels.
