The Council of the European Union is expected to adopt the European Council Conclusions on the EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child.

The Working Party on Fundamental Rights, Citizens Rights and Free Movement of Persons is expected to start discussing this issue on 19 July, while the Conclusions could be adopted as early as October 2021.

The Council Conclusions on the EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child represent a crucial occasion for Member States to react to the European Commission’s strategy and take an official position on the topic. They are also a key opportunity for civil society organisations working for and with children to ensure that Member States commitment will live up to children’s expectations and respond to the challenges they are experiencing.
