Fundamental Principles

A BRIEF Historical CUT the inclusion of Barcelona in the process of the Social agenda of the European Union, was the referential historical frame for construction of the Municipal Plan by the Social inclusion. The European Council of Lisbon in 2000, stimulated to the Member States and the Commission to adopt measures that generated a direct hit in the reduction of the risks and the situations of poverty and social exclusion before 2010. In continuation the European Council of Nize gave a step forward in the European Social Agenda and determined the objectives of the public strategies for the social inclusion: Fomento of the participation in the occupation. Promotion of the universal access to resources, rights, goods and services. Prevention of the specific risks of exclusion. Action in favor of the most vulnerable groups. Mobilization of all the agents: institutional, social and prevailed.

The same Advice of Nize made a declaration of programmatic direction in which he specified the dimensions that it would have to consider the integral treatment of the poverty situations and exclusion. This previous treatment: the labor policy for increase of the rates of activity and use. Protection to the health, attention to the dependencies and guarantee of income. Right to the house, mobility and to urban surroundings of quality. Education, the culture, the free time and the access to the information. Priorizacin of the especially vulnerable groups.

Equality between the women and the men. the operative criterion of territorial subsidiarity and actors. On the putting in practice of the objectives of fight against the poverty, the Council insisted to the Member States to elaborate State Plans of Action in favor of the Social Inclusion that must have the same objectives in the scope of the states by means of a mechanism of open coordination.
