Protecting children’s rights to build a Social Europe

Eurochild’s contribution on the Action Plan to implement the European Pillar of Social Rights

Since its launch in 2017, Eurochild has welcomed the Pillar of Social Rights (Social Pillar) by acknowledging the positive impacts that sound social policies and social protection systems can have on our society. The 20 principles enshrined in the Social Pillar can indeed contribute to greater upward economic and social convergence and enhance the resilience of our society.

Eurochild is calling for a comprehensive implementation plan of the Social Pillar that puts children and their rights at its forefront. Protecting children’s rights is a fundamental prerequisite to have a social, resilient and equal society.

The paper is divided into three parts:

1.The first summarises Eurochild’s key recommendations on the implementation of the Social Pillar

2.The second focuses on Principle 11 by highlighting the necessity of investing in children to tackle child poverty and build a stronger social Europe

3.The third analyses different principles and underlines the necessity to adopt a comprehensive child-rights based approach
