The European Commission will present an agenda for reinforcing children's rights in the EU by putting the principles included in the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights into action.
The purpose is to reaffirm the strong commitment of all EU institutions and of all Member States to promote and protect the rights of the child in all relevant EU policies and to turn them into concrete results. In the future, EU policies that affect directly or indirectly children should be designed, implemented, and monitored taking into account the principle of the best interests of children.
The initiative will list a series of concrete actions where the EU can provide added value to national policies for children's well-being and safety, including promoting child-friendly justice (for example when a child has to get involved with a justice system), better informing children about their rights, and making the internet safer for kids.
