    Communication from the Commission - Towards an EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child (4/7/2006 - COM 2006 367 Final), 10 pages

    This Communication from the Commission proposes to establish a comprehensive EU strategy to effectively promote and safeguard the rights of the child in EUs internal and external policies and to support Member States’ efforts in this field. The Communication includes specific short-term measures, such as the 116000 hotline phone number for missing and exploited children, preliminary work on how to implement the alert system known as “Child Alert”, and an analysis of possible public-private partnerships with the banking and credit card sectors to curb the purchase of images on the internet illustrating sexual abuse of children.
