European Union law in the area of social protection and social inclusion represents the basis for the countries that aspire to become its members. On its path to the EU membership, Serbia has already committed to harmonize its legislation with EU in this area.

This framework is better known as the open method of coordination. The subject of this paper is to analyze the process of implementation of social inclusion policies at the EU level and its relevance and interest for Serbia.
