About the webinar:
The European Union (EU) is negotiating the Multi-Annual Financial Framework (MFF) 2021-2027. Through this crucial process, the EU institutions and member states take a decision on the policy priorities for the next seven years and on the resources to implement them. The speakers of the webinar will explain how this process works and how some new EU funds should support the EU in promoting and protecting the rights of children in migration. The webinar will focus on the Asylum and Migration Fund (AMF), the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) and the Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI).
