European Commission: Recommendation - Investing in children: breaking the cycle of disadvantage

Unwrapping the principles, translating into policies & practices, and highlighting opportunities

The long-awaited European Commission Recommendation on child poverty, entitled "Investing in children: breaking the cycle of disadvantage", was adopted on 20 February 2013 as part of the Social Investment Package for Growth and Cohesion (SIP).  

Eurochild's assessment document aims to:

  • unwrap the Recommendation’s principles and translate them into policies and practices;
  • highlight opportunities for civil society organisations, including Eurochild members, to act at national and regional policy making level, using the tools and mechanisms available through the EU to influence and persuade governments where they can make the greatest difference to children's lives.
