Children on the Move. Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2020. Investment in children

Negotiations on the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) are expected to end by mid 2013, allowing the new EU budget to enter into force in 2014. The MFF will establish EU spending between 2014 and 2020 and provides a political as well as budgetary framework for focusing resources and investments where needed. Save the Children believes that the EU and its Member States must show political willingness to prioritise children’s rights and to be held accountable for the commitments that they make in regard to children. In the framework of Save the Children's global priority “Investment in Children”, the organization works to ensure that the EU allocates adequate human and financial resources to realize children’s rights, and that the EU spends resources efficiently. This policy brief by Save the Children focuses on the proposed Asylum and Migration Fund for the period 2014-2020, which could play a crucial role in ensuring the protection of asylum-seeking and migrating children. Save the Children calls for a global approach across internal and external EU policies that fulfils the EU’s protection and assistance responsibilities to children who arrive in
the EU, and works with third countries to reduce the need for, and risks associated with, and respond to unsafe unnecessary migration
