New opportunities for investing in children
The 2019 Eurochild Report on the European Semester has been launched in the European Parliament at the event Towards No child poverty in Europe 2030: Preventing and tackling child poverty.
The European Semester is the EU’s economic, social and employment policy framework that runs on a yearly cycle. The Report responds to the 2019 European Semester with a children’s rights perspective of 29 Eurochild members who represent 22 European countries!
It’s four main recommendations are as follows:
1. Ensure that children are included in the next policy framework driving the European Semester
2. Use the link between EU funding and the European Semester to promote the social dimension of policies
3. Include a focus on children’s well-being in the EU’s analysis of national policy development in the Country Reports
4. Make the engagement of civil society in the European Semester a requirement for both Member States and the European Commission
Eurochild is a network of organisations and individuals working in and across Europe to promote the rights and well-being of children and young people.
The mission of the network is to promote the rights and well-being of children in policy and practise through advocacy, membership exchange and research.
Eurochild’s work is underpinned by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). An international human rights treaty that grants all children and young people a comprehensive set of rights.
The network is co-funded by the European Union’s Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI). A financing instrument at EU level which promotes, amongst others, combating social exclusion & poverty.
