FORUM Conference at the European Parliament
the project FORUM, the event “How
EU policies and funding can support national governments to ensure quality
alternative care for children in migration”, organised by EUROCHILD
will take place on 3 April
2019 on the premises of the European Parliament in Brussels and
will be co-hosted by MEP
Miriam Dalli and MEP Cécile Kyenge.
The next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) presents a unique opportunity for EU Member States to ensure that children in migration are protected both at reception and integration and that those unaccompanied grow up in quality family and community based care.
The event will bring together Members of the European Parliament, European Commission officials, and civil society from both EU and national level. Its aim is to capitalise on existing EU commitments on the issue of protection of children in migration and will look at how EU policies and the next MFF will champion these commitments, ensuring that children in migration and those unaccompanied in particular, grow up in inclusive societies where their rights are respected.
