Child poverty as social investment and Economic reform program Conference

The Conference will be held by MODS on 11-12 October 2017 in Belgrade, Serbia.

The Conference organised by MODS (the Network of Organizations for Children of Serbia) and co-funded by Eurochild will focus on child poverty, better public spending and child participation.

Child poverty is an invisible issue in Serbia and is not recognized as a priority. The Conference plans to raise the issue of children’s rights, especially child poverty, high on the agenda of the Government, as one of the priorities in the process of European integration and particularly emphasise the connection to economic reforms.

Target audience: Representatives of the European Commission, the EU Delegation, the Ministries of Finance and Social Welfare, NGOs, children.

The aim of the event is to analyse the results of the Economic Reform Programme (ERP), a document drafted by the Republic of Serbia to establish a platform for increasing the efficiency of fiscal planning and the coordination of economic policy and the impact of its implementation on social inclusion and poverty reduction, particularly in the elimination of child poverty.

Further info and the agenda of the event will be uploaded soon.
