The WYP Project

The project Working, Yet Poor (WorkYP) is focused on the increasing social trend of working people at risk or below the poverty line. The overall purpose is to effectively prevent the risk of social dumping, reduce economic shocks, and grant EU citizens, mostly those who do not circulate, regaining confidence in public governance and substantiating their citizenry’s status.

Papers by our researchers, video-reportages, press articles and a reading room with reports, statistics and articles for a better understanding of in-work poverty
