New EUROSHIP publications

The EUROSHIP project released the results of its latest round of research into social rights and citizenship in the EU in a series of four working papers. One of the four, the "Diversity and change in citizenship: Mapping poverty in Europe" was authored by our colleagues, András Gábos, Zsófia Tomka and István György Tóth.
