The European Union adopts legislative and non-legislative initiatives that have a direct impact on the lives of European citizens. The EU also plays an important role at international level, notably for the protection of Human Rights and is an important partner of the United Nations and the biggest donor for development aid.
In this context, the MMM European Delegation focuses on supporting and empowering mothers and highlighting how their contribution at social and economic levels matters for Europe’s future development.
