POVERTY IN THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA – Infographic

Social inclusion is defined as a process which ensures that those at risk of poverty and social exclusion gain the opportunities and resources necessary to participate fully in economic, social and cultural life and to enjoy a standard of living and well-being that is considered normal in the society in which they live. Social inclusion ensures greater citizen participation in decision-making which affects their lives and access to their fundamental rights.

Among EU Member States, social exclusion is defined as a process whereby certain individuals are pushed to the edge of society and prevented from participating in social relations and developments to the full extent of their capacity, by virtue of their poverty, or lack of basic competencies and lifelong learning opportunities, or as a result of discrimination. Individuals and/or population groups are thus distanced from job, income and education and training opportunities and hindered from joining and participating in social and community networks and activities. Excluded individuals and/or groups have little and inadequate access to institutions, authorities and decision-making processes.

Poverty is defined as a multidimensional phenomenon which, in addition to an income insufficient to meet the basic needs of life, also entails the inability to find employment, inadequate housing conditions and inadequate access to social protection, health care, education and utility services. Other key aspects of poverty include inability to exercise the right to a healthy environment and natural assets, in particular clean water and air.
