The new European Parliament must have the institutional capacity to
stand up for the interests of children in every aspect of its work. We call on
MEPs to ensure the rights of all children around the world are respected and
fulfilled. All 28 EU Member States have ratified the UN Convention on the Rights
of the Child; the Lisbon Treaty makes the promotion of children’s rights an
explicit objective of EU internal and external affairs and the EU Charter of
Fundamental Rights requires that the best interests of the child is a primary
consideration in all EU actions.
The Child Rights Action Group, bringing together international and
European organisations promoting children’s rights both in the EU and in its
external action, invite you to debate how you can translate your commitment into
concrete results for children.

Parliament? Please read our Manifesto and sign
