On 15 February 2011, the European Commission published a Communication setting out An EU Agenda for the Rights of the Child. Since then, the Committee has been engaging with the Government and stakeholders and, on 1 December 2011, wrote to Viviane Reding, the European Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, setting out its concerns.
