Money, influence and mind-sets: How can advocacy and research help the EU to be a positive force for change in children’s lives?

Read about two case studies from Eurochild’s portfolio of work, that shows how advocacy and research can strengthen child protection systems and break the cycle of poverty and inequality.

How can policies tackling child poverty and promoting child well-being become more effective and achieve better outcomes for children? A paper, written by Dr Agata D’Addato and Katerina Nanou, based on their experiences of advocating for ‘Opening Doors for Europe’s Children’ campaign and Childonomics research work, has been published in a special issue journal for University of Łódź entitled ‘Investing in children: Innovative Solutions to improve children’s well-being’. The paper ‘Money, influence and mind-sets: How can advocacy and research help the EU to be a positive force for change in children’s lives?’ provides an overview of recent opportunities at the EU level, potentially capable of influencing and shaping policies to address child poverty and social exclusion.

The journal also features articles from European Commission officials, researchers on early childhood education and specific attention to the situation of children in Poland.
