Promoting Equality for Children
Every 18 months, UNICEF’s research centre in Florence publishes a report on child well-being in the OECD and EU area. The 2016 report features new figures showing growing inequalities among children in 41 high-income countries. The report will officially be launched at the conference in Paris. The conference will be both in English and French and simultaneous translation will be available in both languages.
