Combat Poverty

Every two years, the Service must prepare a report on insecurity, poverty, and social exclusion and unequal access to rights. The report is compiled in conjunction with associations in which the poor have a say and other partners. With the application of the dialogue method, this Report differs from many others. The biennial reports are intended to be an aid in political decision-making. The Cooperation Agreement provides the necessary follow-up procedure for this: The Interministerial Conference “Integration in Society”, formed as an instrument to achieve more coherence in the policy regarding poverty and social exclusion, must transmit this report to the various political and socio-economic authorities.
