4. Social Inclusion

4.8 Current debates and reforms

Last update: 1 April 2024

According to ministry information in 2024, the development plans aimed at promoting social inclusion and equal opportunities are highlighted in the EFOP Plus programmes for the 2021-2027 EU cycle. The EFOP Plus programmes are currently under acceptance. In social inclusion developments they put special emphasis on measures that help 

  • employability, 
  • the development of programmes that reach children in a more differentiated way, adapted to their life path, and 
  • the validation of regional aspects.

Based on that, the three main aims of the developments are to

  • further reduce the proportion of people living in poverty, 
  • limit the reproduction of poverty and 
  • to reduce social inequalities. 

A specific aim is to create opportunities (from EU funds) for children and young people living in poverty through targeted interventions and through complex interventions in the field of education, training, housing, social fields and in the labour market. The plans specifically focusing on young people that include to handle the problems coming from disadvantaged family circumstances and to provide additional services to support these young people in colleges. There are also plans to develop Tanoda services, to continue the programme aimed at preventing Roma girls from early school leaving, and to develop the Roma vocational colleges.
