8 ways for the EU Budget to protect children in migration
Thu, 26/04/2018 - 14:30

Across the world, there are an estimated 31 million children living outside their country of birth, and there are an estimated 5.4 million child migrants in Europe. The EU has a responsibility to ensure that EU funding streams reach children in migration, seek to equally protect them and fulfil their best interests, regardless of their migration and citizenship status or of where they are growing up.

Caritas Europa, together with  35 other organisations, has signed this statement urging that the EU's Multi-annual Financial Framework complies fully with the rights and principles enshrined in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and relevant international instruments, including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
