Round table “Ensuring children’s rights in the context of deinstitutionalisation in Belgium”


As part of the “Opening Doors for Europe’s Children” campaign, Eurochild in collaboration with ENIL  is organising a round table on the experiences of deinstitutionalisation in the context of Belgium. The event takes place on 27th January 2017, from 13:00 to 16:00 on the premises of  Kind en Gezin (Hallepoortlaan 27, 1060 Brussels).

The event will bring together key national and EU level stakeholders from the children’s rights and disability rights movements. It will initiate discussions on what does deinstitutionalisation (DI) in a Belgian context mean and what are the experiences on DI in relation to protection of children’s rights in Belgium. The aim of the round table is to start a dialogue on possibilities for future collaboration among actors in the children’s rights, anti-poverty, and disability rights movements.
