This study has been supported by Eurochild’s ‘Expert group on the impact of the Lisbon Treaty on Children’s Rights’

This study provides guidance on how effective child rights mainstreaming can be undertaken in the EU’s internal policies, budget and legislation. It offers “seven steps for effective mainstreaming of children’s rights”, based on interviews with European Commission and European Council officials as well as contributions from national children’s NGOs and academics.

This study has been supported by Eurochild’s ‘Expert group on the impact of the Lisbon Treaty on Children’s Rights’. Mieke Schuurman, external child rights consultant and policy advisor to Eurochild, was responsible leading the study and coordinating inputs from the group. She is the main author of this report. She was supported by the Eurochild secretariat: Mafalda Leal (Senior Policy Coordinator) and Jana Hainsworth (Secretary General).
