European Parliament gives boost to children’s rights in European Social Fund

Eurochild is delighted that the position of the European Parliament’s Employment and Social Affairs Committee includes an additional priority to promote children’s rights and well-being in order to protect children at risk and tackle child poverty within the European Social Fund (ESF) 2014-2020.
The Employment and Social Affairs Committee also took a clear stand for safeguarding ESF against macroeconomic conditionalities (a possibility to cut funding to countries underperforming on EU debt and deficit rules); and supporting a minimum allocation to social inclusion within the ESF, which Eurochild has been campaigning for along with other European networks.
