ESF Policies as a Mitigating Factor During the Crisis

16-01-2017

This study evaluates the reactivity of the ESF 2007-2013 in the face of the crisis, including a comparison with the changed modalities for the 2014–2020 funding period. It concludes that the most ‘in need’ target-groups have been covered by ESF interventions, without however reaching all potential recipients, due to limitations of scope and resources. Recommendations to Member States and European Commission are also provided.
