Bulgaria President to Open Council of Europe Conference in Sofia

President of the Republic of Bulgaria Rosen Plevneliev will open a high-level conference of the Council of Europe, which will present the new Council of Europe Strategy for the Rights of the Child (2016-2021), the press centre of the President’s Office announced.
The forum will set the start of the implementation of the strategy, which was adopted on March 2, 2016 during the Bulgarian Chairmanship of the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers.
This is the third strategy for the rights of the children under the “Let’s build a Europe with and for children” programme.
After the Stockholm and the Monaco strategies, the conference in Sofia will set the start of the third strategy.
The two-day forum is hosted by the Bulgarian State Agency for Child Protection and the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy.
The conference will allow high level representatives of the Council of Europe member states and different international organisations to express their engagement towards the Strategy and present their views on its implementation.
Nils Muiznieks, Council of Europe’s Commissioner for Human Rights, will make a statement at the beginning of the conference, too.
The forum will continue until April 6. There will be nine themed sessions, as the participants will have the chance to learn and discuss the latest developments in the severest challenges covered by the Strategy.
