The second edition of Social Cohesion Days launches the activities of the International Observatory for Social Cohesion and Inclusion.
At the event, the first analytical work produced by the International Observatory will be presented: a map which identifies the Italian reality of solidarity and social cohesion and that enables the obtainment of useful data to be used for comparison, positioning Italy in an international context.
To realise the map, a composite index was created which considered several indicators: social relations, economy, gender equality (in parliament), culture, social inclusion and non-discrimination, environment and trust in government – each a fundamental element characteristic of social cohesion.
The event will be introduced by an overview of social cohesion policies in Europe, curated by the European Council Department for Social Cohesion.
