This chapter considers the challenge of advancing the Social Inclusion Process in the context of the re-focused Lisbon Strategy, and of embedding the Process in domestic policies and implementing a social-inclusion mainstreaming through establishing a scheme of systematic policy assessments at EU, national, and sub-national levels. It proposes the setting of targets, fundamentally restructured NAPs/inclusion, and working towards more ‘joined-up’ government, on the basis of committed administrative and political leadership, and parliamentary scrutiny. The chapter also stresses the importance of raising awareness of the Social Inclusion Process, and of further mobilising the different actors involved in the fight against poverty and social exclusion at the subnational, national, and EU levels.
