The EU investing in people through the European Social Fund
What does the EU really do for citizens? The European Social Fund (ESF) is one answer to the question, investing in some 10 million people every year throughout the 27 Member States. This book tells the stories of 54 individuals – two per Member State – who have taken up the opportunities offered by ESF-funded initiatives. The interviews focus on women and men, on every age group from teenagers to pensioners, in urban and rural communities, in every country of the EU.
