Social protection is a universal right which is affordable (also for poor countries) and which works to accelerate progress towards sustainable and inclusive development.
Social protection consists of a range of different measures: measures of prevention, based on the principles of social insurance and solidarity enabling people to cope with certain risks; measures of protection, based on social assistance and directed at the poorest and most vulnerable members of society; measures of promotion aiming at investing in people’s capacities making it possible for all to develop their full potential; and policies that relate to power imbalances in society that encourage, create and sustain vulnerabilities (transformative element).
What we do
We work with our members, the Global Network and the European Working Group on Decent Work and Social Protection in Development Cooperation:
We do so through projects (funded by the EU and UKAid) and advocacy work in Brussels and in countries where the Global Network is present.
