It’s four main recommendations are as follows:

1.    Ensure that children are included in the next policy framework driving the European Semester
2.    Use the link between EU funding and the European Semester to promote the social dimension of policies
3.    Include a focus on children’s well-being in the EU’s analysis of national policy development in the Country Reports
4.    Make the engagement of civil society in the European Semester a requirement for both Member States and the European Commission
