'Financial services in the EU: Is there a problem of financial exclusion?' by Mahmoud Meskoub
ISS Working paper No. 638
This study explores the link between the EU Social Investment Package and availability, access and use of financial services. There are two dimensions to ‘social investment’: the investment dimension refers to resources that need to be invested in order to increase welfare and capabilities of the population, whilst the social dimension is about society’s collective effort for raising such investment as well as sharing in its benefits.
