Policy Papers

 

EPR lobbies for interests of social service providers at European level. Policy issues are discussed in the EPR Board and at regular Strategic Workshops for Directors.

 

Important dossiers EPR has been working on include the debate on Quality of social services of general interest, the Services Directive and the priorities of successive EU Disability Action Plans. As a member of the HLG on Disability, EPR has also been involved in dossiers on disability mainstreaming in the Open Method of Coordination (OMC) in social protection and social inclusion, the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities and the adoption of the new State Aid Block Exemption Regulation.
