DIRK JARRE, Secretary-General of the German National Committee of the International Council on Social Welfare, remarked that when addressing poverty, it was essential to create a sustainable response dealing with social, economic and environmental matters.There had to be a structured civil dialogue, moreover, including full consultation with relevant non-governmental organizations (NGOs).The resulting strategy should be firmly grounded in fundamental rights, and particularly fundamental social rights, reflecting standards contained in relevant international instruments.People should be treated not merely as consumers or economic units, but as citizens with all the rights of citizenship.It wasn't the function of social policy to serve economic performance; rather economic policy must underpin important social goals.The goal must be establishment of a cohesive, just society, where each person could have access to the rights, goods, and services he needed.The cost for establishing such a society should not fall on those who were poorest or most vulnerable.
