Save the Children: Eyes on Europe: Progress towards children's rights in the EU

This report deals with the response of political institutions to the obligations to children which followed from the adoption by the UN of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989

The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child and the Human Rights Council (through the process of the Universal Periodic Review) have made observations and recommendations to Individual European states about how they should improve the implementation of children’s rights.

By means of exploring actions to combat violence against children by European Member States and the EU institutions, the report will assess the extent to which the concerns and advice of the Committee on the Rights of the Child and the Universal Periodic Review have been addressed.
