What happened to European children in 2016?
You will find the answers is in the new Eurochild Annual Report.
Eurochild is a network of organisations working with and for children throughout Europe, striving for a society that respects the rights of children.
The work of Eurochild is underpinned by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), the most signed international human rights treaty that grants all children and young people a comprehensive set of rights.
The new Annual Report of the organisation highlights the fact that if progress towards the full realisation of children’s rights in Europe suffered several setbacks, 2016 also brought significant positive developments.
Two examples: (1) the Council of Europe adopted a 6-year ambitious children’s rights strategy with high-level political commitment from many of its 47 member states; (2) the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child issued two new General Comments giving guidance to governments on public spending for the realisation of children’s rights, and implementation of children’s rights during adolescence.
In 2016, Eurochild welcomed 17 new members after a vote by the General Assembly. Eurochild has a total of 178 members, from 33 countries, including organisations and individuals working to promote children’s rights in Europe.
