Presenting FRA’s child poverty report to the European Parliament

On World Children’s Day, on 20 November, the Agency will present its Combating child poverty: an issue of fundamental rights report to the European Parliament’s Committee on Employment and Social Affairs.

The presentation will focus on findings regarding the reality of children living in poverty in the EU and will highlight FRA opinions on how to more effectively fight child poverty. It will point out that combating child poverty is not only about policy priorities; it is also a matter of fundamental rights.

FRA will bring attention to child poverty in a period when the European legislator is discussing the rules and the allocation of EU funds for the upcoming programming period 2021-2027.
