The EU has recently adopted new EU Guidelines on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of the Child.
What are the EU Guidelines?
The Guidelines provide specific guidance on how the new policy framework (SDGs, EU’s Global Strategy) should be taken into account in the promotion and protection of the rights of the child. The ‘Operational Guidelines’ section of the guidelines suggests concrete actions to step up work towards the promotion and protection of the rights of the child and is divided into two parts; actions that the EU itself should undertake and actions that the EU encourages partners countries and relevant actors to undertake.
