Social Protection Monitor


The Social Protection Monitor is a tool developed by SOLIDAR members of the International Cooperation Committee, to allow partner organizations and allies to evaluate the priorities of the EU in the framework of the European Neighbourhood Policy and EU Development Cooperation Policy with selected countries.

The purpose of this tool is to see how the European Commission’s bilateral programs include (or not) the promotion of social protection for all or any of the following benchmarks:

  1. Improving equitable access to essential services
  2. Ensuring Income security
  3. Promoting a Rights Based Approach to Social Protection
  4. Freedom of association
  5. Financing Social Protection

The Social Protection Monitor aims to:

  1. Monitor the implementation of the European Development Policy in selected African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP), Latin America and Asian Countries as well as the European Neighborhood Policy in the Middle East and North Africa region, and prepare input for the 2017 mid-term review of EU development cooperation programs.
  2. Enable partners to have a say in EU policy making by offering a communication and advocacy channel to Brussels-based decision makers on the European Development Policy (in particular Development Cooperation Instrument and the European Development Fund) and European Neighborhood Policy for SOLIDAR members’ partners on social protection (including education, healthcare, social security and decent work).
