25 Millionen Kinder in der EU leben in Armut und Hunger

Als Mitglied der Fundamental Rights Platform (FRA) dokumentiert Aktion Freiheit statt Angst regelmäßig deren Veröffentlichungen, wenn sie unsere Themen betreffen. Die FRA berichtet heute über eine Untersuchung über auch in den reicheren EU Ländern weit verbreitete Kinderarmut, durch die den Betroffenen die Chancen auf eine gleichberechtigte Entwicklung genommen werden.

Help end the child poverty plaguing Europe

Almost 25 million children in the EU live in low income households where living conditions are unacceptable and hunger is common. Inadequate education and healthcare threaten their fundamental rights and deprive them of opportunities to escape the poverty cycle, finds the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights in its latest report.

"Child poverty has no place in Europe, one of the world's richest regions," says FRA Director Michael O'Flaherty. "We have the means to help end the deplorable conditions facing so many of Europe's children. Now we need action so the EU and its Member States honour their commitments to uphold the rights of children to give them a better future."

The report, Combating child poverty (http://fra.europa.eu/en/publication/2018/child-poverty ): an issue of fundamental rights, highlights how one in four children under 18 are at risk of poverty or social exclusion across the EU. In some Member States, like Romania, it is as high as 1 in 2. While it can affect all children, some groups, like Roma and migrant children fare even worse; a FRA survey revealed over 90% of Roma children in nine Member States experience poverty.

The report underlines how combating child poverty is also a matter of realising their fundamental rights. It also suggests what the EU and its Member States can do to address the issue:

The report also identifies how the European Pillar of Social Rights can help ensure that children have the right to be protected from poverty. Discussions about the direction of EU funding also herald an opportunity to help children escape poverty.
