What do these country profiles cover?
The latest country profiles available on the EPIC website provide an up–to-date overview of current policies for children and their families in all EU countries.
In addition to recent policy developments, the profiles also include examples of national policy and practice innovations and key Eurostat indicators relating to the policy pillars of the European Commission Recommendation of February 2013 on ‘Investing in Children: breaking the cycle of disadvantage’.
The profiles will be used to inform a report on trends in EU child and family policy that will be published in August 2019.
EPIC supports Member States to invest in children
EPIC also publishes a wide range of content focused on supporting child wellbeing. This includes a series of short policy memos focusing on topics relevant to child welfare aimed at policymakers, researchers and practitioners, and a collection of innovative and evidence-based practices.
