November 2013 - The Social Investment Package

The Social Investment Package (SIP) was adopted by the European Commission on 20th February 2013. The SIP sets a new framework for policy reforms, “to render social protection more adequate and sustainable, to invest in people’s skills and capabilities and to support people throughout the critical moments experienced across their lives.”

The SIP will be the cornerstone of the European Commission’s social policies during the next years.

The present paper communicates the views of EMN on the SIP and consists of a Summary of the SIP and the EMN position on the SIP.
