External event
FRA will take part in the Council of Europe’s high-level conference ‘Beyond the horizon: a new era for the rights of the child’, on 7 April in Rome.

There they will officially launch their new strategy for the rights of the child (2022-2027).

FRA’s Director will intervene in the high-level plenary session of representatives of Member States and international organisations. He will present main findings from FRA’s research on Roma and LGBTI children, and its field visits to the EU-Ukrainian borders that also looked into the protection of children fleeing from Ukraine.

FRA will also launch the update of the 2015 edition of the handbook on European case law relating to child rights. Speakers from the UN Committee on child rights, the Council of Europe and the Italian Judiciary will refer to their experience of using the handbook in relation to children and migration, child abuse, poverty and access to justice.

The Council of Europe and the Italian Presidency of the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers co-organise the conference.
