European Minimum Income Network 2 (EMIN2)

The European Minimum Income Network 2 (EMIN 2) is an informal Network of organisations and individuals committed to achieve the progressive realisation of the right to adequate, accessible and enabling Minimum Income Schemes. The organisations involved include the relevant public authorities, service providers, social partners, academics, policy makers at different levels, NGOs, and fosters the involvement of people who benefit or could benefit from minimum income support. EMIN is organised at EU and national levels, in all the Member States of the European Union and also in Iceland, Norway, Macedonia (FYROM) and Serbia. EMIN is coordinated by the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) – more information on EMIN can be found at

The main goal of this project is to strengthen Networking, awareness raising and policy debates at EU and national level on the importance of adequate and accessible minimum income schemes. The EMIN Network should be open to any organisation, body or individual who will support the progressive realisation of adequate Minimum Income Schemes.
