EU Budget 2014-2020: Making children visible

The Children’s Rights Action Group (CRAG) is a partnership of International NGOs including the authors of this position: Eurochild, the European Juvenile Justice Observatory, Plan International, Save the Children, SOS Children’s Villages, Terre des Hommes International Federation and World Vision. The CRAG aims to ensure that children’s rights are protected, respected and fulfilled both in the internal and external dimensions of EU policies and legislation, in accordance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCR). Children need to be made visible in the EU budget by securing direct and indirect allocations, which can be traced and monitored. Without disaggregated data that shows how much of the EU’s spending actually reaches children, it is impossible to assess how successful the EU has been in terms of implementing its commitments to children. This position contains analyses and recommendations from a child rights rights perspective on a selection of the financial instruments proposed by the EC under the following headings:
- Smart and Inclusive Growth (Heading1),
- Security and Citizenship (Heading 3),
- Global Europe (Heading 4)
