Will the next Multi-Annual Financial Framework Post 2020 focus on the human right dimension?

The UN Human Rights Regional Office in consultation with ERGO and a range of civil society organisations prepared a position paper with recommendations “EUROPEAN ADDED VALUE THE EU MULTI-ANNUAL FINANCIAL FRAMEWORK POST 2020: A TOOL TO CLOSE HUMAN RIGHTS GAPS IN EUROPE?” on the human rights dimension for the EU Multi-Annual Financial Framework post-2020  (“MFF post-2020”)

The paper explains how European Union (EU) funding is relevant for the realization of human rights in Europe.  The aim of the paper is to contribute to the open discussion on the future of the MFF post-2020 and broader consultations for the next MFF.

The position paper has a number of concrete recommendations such as: reviving and invigorating civic space; strengthening diversity and inclusion and combating segregation in education, housing, health care and employment; enhancing the right to community living: persons with disabilities, children and older persons; combating forced eviction and ending homelessness; and providing human rights-based alternatives to detention in the context of migration.
