Promoting social inclusion in rural areas

The Agency highlighted the benefits of having a rights-based approach to social inclusion at a workshop on ‘Social Hubs in Rural Europe’.

It highlighted the importance of collaborating and linking social inclusion policies targeting different vulnerable groups. The capacity-building workshop was organised by the European Network for Rural Development (ENRD). It allowed the exchange of good practices on tackling social exclusion in rural areas among refugees and migrants, Roma, youth or women. The event in Brussels brought together more than 100 representatives from regional and Member States authorities participating in the network, as well as representatives from EU such as the European Commission.
