EU 2020 Strategy is further off-track to deliver inclusive, sustainable, equal and social EU, writes EU Semester Alliance to EU Council

19/06/2015 – The EU Alliance for a democratic, social and sustainable European Semester also called ‘Semester Alliance’ addressed a letter yesterday to Heads of States and top EU officials ahead of the EU Council next 25 & 26 June on the endorsement of the 2015 Country-Specific Recommendations (CSRs). The Semester Alliance highlights that the EU has failed to deliver an inclusive recovery strategy and that immediate action is needed to bring the Europe 2020 back on track with all its initial goals.

The Alliance particularly urges EU leaders to embrace a comprehensive approach to promote economic growth that contributes to social justice and sustainable development. Combating poverty, creating quality jobs, ensuring adequate and sustainable social protection, including quality social support services, investing in early childhood education and care, enhancing equality for  women and men at every stage of life, as well as ensuring environmental sustainability are all as important as boosting economic recovery.
