Implementing a multi-dimensional approach to child poverty, informed by the EU Recommendation on Investing in Children


6 November 2014

D/Education & Skills Clocktower, Marlborough Street, Dublin


The Department of Social Protection, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, the Department of Education & Skills and the Children’s Rights Alliance, in conjunction with the European Institute of Public Administration, are hosting a seminar on child poverty/investing in children that will be informed by commitments contained in the National Policy Framework for Children and Young People, particularly the child specific target for poverty reduction and the National Action Plan for Social Inclusion 2007 -2016.


Purpose and Target Audience

The purpose of the seminar will be to increase the understanding of structural challenges faced when addressing child poverty; to raise awareness of existing EU policy instruments which might be used to confront them; to emphasise the need for a multi-dimensional approach to tackling child poverty and explore how this might best be achieved; and to look at some examples of best practice in the Irish context.
