In a joint statement on 12 November 2020, together with numerous organisations, we called on the European Commission to respond to the Council Conclusions of October 2020, on “Strengthening Minimum Income Protection to Combat Poverty and Social Exclusion in the COVID-19 Pandemic and Beyond”, by making an ambitious proposal for an EU Framework Directive to guarantee an adequate, accessible, and enabling Minimum Income.
We believe that an adequate guaranteed minimum income is a social and human right for all people and helps to guarantee a minimum standard of living and a decent life for all, enabling people to fully participate in society.
One of the best ways to prevent people being dragged into poverty is to build individual and societal resilience – and strong social protection systems are the cornerstone of such resilience. In this context, adequate, accessible and enabling Minimum Income schemes have an essential role to play as an ultimate safety net.
