Abstract: This work reviews the relevant literature and distils ideas and suggestions for developing a comprehensive index of social inclusion at EU regional level. The new composite indicator (a “Regional Inclusive Society Index”) is expected to contribute with relevant inputs and insights to the policy debates and decision making processes related to: i) tackling social disparities at regional level; and ii) promoting social cohesion alongside economic cohesion. The final objective of this document is to come up with a proposal of recommended dimensions and key indicators to populate the conceptual framework of the index. A first outline of an indicator framework has been proposed, which draws heavily upon existing practices and experiences related to measuring social cohesion and inclusive societies, along with highly relevant policy and research documents. The findings and conclusions discussed herein are presented alongside the conceptual and practical challenges encountered throughout the process.
