The project studies the effects of the increasing carbon costs in the EU on the economically vulnerable groups of final energy consumers. It focuses on four East-European EU member states (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, and Romania) – with higher-than-EU-average levels of fossil fuels dependence in their economic systems, and higher-than-EU-average energy poverty levels.
The project consists of the preparation of a draft law implementing the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). It obliges the states-parties to take all actions to implement the provisions and monitor their implementation, as well as to disseminate its provisions to raise awareness of citizens, including those with disabilities.
Our goal in UNTANGLED is to examine the impact of globalisation, technological transformations and demographic change on labour markets in the European Union, and to recommend policies that will contribute to shared prosperity.
