This research is a part of the study of the feature of inequality in the economic development of the EU countries. In this study, indicators such as GDP per capita, Gini coefficient, state social transfers, and Lorenz curves are plotted in detail to show the differences between EU countries. All these indicators characterize the structure of wealth distribution within the EU countries in dynamics since 2003. How income is distributed in each country and what state policy on this issue the government chooses determines the level of inequality in the EU. The paper also analyzes the current key methods of coordinating countries on the issue of fighting poverty, and also examines the main strategies and goals of economic development using the Lisbon strategy and the Europe 2020 strategy.
