Combat Poverty

The Cooperation Agreement structurally anchors the consultation between the authorities and the associations in which the poor have a say and assigns the Service the task of organizing this consultation.

To do this, it uses the dialogue method, which was used in preparing the General Report on Poverty. In this participation method, the object is to intersect the experiential knowledge of people who have themselves lived in poverty with the action knowledge of the social assistance groups, the administrations, civil society, politics etc and with the academic knowledge of scientists.

The involvement of people in poverty through the organizations that represent them not only encourages their emancipation but also guarantees more efficient policy in the fight against poverty and a more cohesive and democratic society.
