Child Rights Manifesto
Children make up half the population in developing countries.
Around 100 million children live in the European Union.
The lives of children the world over are affected daily by EU policies, legislation and actions.
All EU Member States are parties to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and have clear legal obligations to promote, protect and fulfill the rights of every child in their jurisdictions.
The Lisbon Treaty makes the promotion of children’s rights an explicit objective of EU internal and external affairs and the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights requires that the best interests of the child is a primary consideration in all EU action.
It is time to translate these commitments into concrete results for children!
