    Abstract

    This background brief provides an overview of the issues concerning poverty and social exclusion in the European Union, and the regional initiatives taken to address them. Particular attention paid to the exclusion and relative deprivation faced not only by migrants and minorities, but also the urban poor. Examples are given also of the specific programmes to address the problems of Roma exclusion and of the urban renewal programmes to reduce poverty and spatial segregation, and to increase social cohesion. The urban dimension also provides a good example of how regional funds are being used to combat poverty and social exclusion. However, as social policy still falls largely under national government competencies, the brief also reveals the limits of transnational action.
