Council of Europe conference to celebrate 30 years of the Child Rights Convention

FRA will take part in the Council of Europe’s anniversary conference to mark 30 years of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The conference takes place in Strasbourg, France, on 13 and 14 November. FRA will discuss effective and positive action to fight child poverty across Europe.

In particular, attention will be paid to the positive role that education and the promotion of human rights can play in breaking cycles of poverty and to effective national strategies to combat poverty. In addition, FRA will raise awareness about all the available material produced by the agency in various child rights projects.

On the unique occasion of the 30th Anniversary of the UN, FRA has also produced a brochure that will be presented for the first time at the conference. This brochure aims to disseminate information about the rights of children in Europe and refer to FRA’s existing research and practical tools.
