Author: Sandy Ruxton, independent social policy expert, specialising in children's rights.


This report consists of two parts; part one explores the key challenges facing children in the EU today, EU's current approach to children, and identifies a number of weaknesses including limited legal bases in the EU treaties, relative invisibility of children's interest, lack of overall policy leadership and co-ordination, minimal resources from the EU budget and lack of information on children at EU-level. Part two examines in detail specific policy areas affecting children in the EU.
