[Editorial] Child poverty in France: alarming trends
Is France failing its children? Yes, according to Michele Barzach, head of UNICEF France. The agency’s latest report, Every child counts. Everywhere, anytime, released on June 9, provides an independent assessment of France’s compliance with, and violations of, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) for submission to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child. “Our report is an alarm bell that should encourage authorities to take urgent and more efficient actions to improve the life of every child”, said Barzach.
