Finland that respects the rights of the child

Finland’s first National Child Strategy was published in 2021. It is based on fundamental and human rights treaties, and its vision is a genuinely child- and family-friendly Finland that respects the rights of the child.

Rights of the Child

Like other human rights treaties, the Convention on the Rights of the Child also obliges the State. The State must both actively promote the realisation of children’s rights and protect children from violations of these rights.


European Child Guarantee

The aim of the Child Guarantee is to support specifically vulnerable children and their families and to help direct investments to the wellbeing of children.
