Building a Europe for and with children

Since launching the Programme ”Building a Europe for and with children” in Monaco in 2006, the Council of Europe has implemented strategies over a series of policy cycles to guide its work on strengthening child rights protection in Europe.

This document – adopted by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe – contains the text of the Strategy for the Rights of the Child which will be implemented for the period 2016-2021. It covers priority areas to guarantee all children their rights, namely in the areas of equal opportunities, participation, a violence-free life, child-friendly justice and their rights in the digital environment.
