A reminder to tackle child poverty!
While the EU has improved performance on its economic indices, more than 1 in 4 children continue to be at risk of child poverty or social exclusion. The European Semester, which is the EU’s annual cycle of economic policy coordination, did not make any recommendations to reduce child poverty in the EU Member States. That is a worrying tendency.
Eurochild’s latest yearly report on the 2017 European Semester details the situation of child poverty and children’s rights in 18 EU countries.
The report entitled “Investing in children in the era of social rights”, offers alternative recommendations specific to each country to encourage EU Member States to invest in children.
“We encourage EU Member States to make economic policies work for children and for the Commission to take forward its social analysis into action”, states Jana Hainsworth, Secretary General, Eurochild.
Eurochild’s report brings together the assessments of 22 contributors from 18 EU Member States.
