European Parliament Report on Member States Policies on Children with Disabilities published

Date: 25th August 2013
Category: Disability, Basic Health and Welfare

The report on Member States' Policies on Children with Disabilities prepared by Milieu has been published, as well as the country reports.

The report concludes that whilst there is a broad recognition of the rights of children with disabilities under national legal systems, their practical implementation is revealed to be problematic in most Member States, and the economic crisis is contributing to the removal and reduction of assistance in most Member States.

The report outlines a set of recommendations for EU action to enhance the situation of children with disabilities. Find the main report here and the country reports here.
