About this report

A study of the impact of the European crisis and austerity on people, with a special focus on Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Romania and Spain.

The report, commissioned by Caritas Europa and Caritas organisations in 7 EU Member States, is the third annual edition in a series of in-depth examination on the impact that current policies are having on people in the EU countries worst affected by the economic crisis. It describes the human impacts of the crisis and of austerity policies, and documents the growing number of people struggling with poverty and inequalities.

The Report also informs on measures undertaken by the EU and national authorities and on the impact of the “Troika Programmes”. Furthermore, it shows how the crisis has affected access to social services and healthcare, and deepened the difficult situation of children and their families.
