Commission has proposed, in the recent period, rules to better protect children in cross-border family proceedings - What exactly?

We're waiting for Klaus Zinser to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

After the speech of Jörg Meuthen AfD on the International Day of the Family on 31 May 2018

http://www.europarl.europa.eu/plenary/EN...

The Commission Employee: Christos Stylianides, Member of the Commission
said:
'Madam President, on behalf of my dear colleagues Věra Jourová and Marianne Thyssen, I am here to address this issue: the International Day of the Family. You know that it is a United Nations initiative. As UN members, EU Member States may observe this day. However, as it is not an EU initiative, as such, it does not receive any specific support from the Commission.

Family policy is primarily a Member State competence. The Commission supports Member States’ efforts on family and child policies through political guidance, including in the context of the European Semester. EU financial support is also available. The EU rules can affect family law in cross-border cases affecting, for example, divorce and separation, marriage, civil partnership and property issues like succession and wills, and in this area of civil law the Commission has proposed, in the recent period, rules to better protect children in cross-border family proceedings.

The European Pillar of Social Rights, adopted on 26 April 2017, is our reference framework to screen the performance of our labour markets and social protection systems with respect to challenges and people’s needs. It puts forward a new generation of rights, in particular access to social protection, thus promoting universality of support for all in need, starting with children and their families. The Pillar constitute the EU’s main implementation tool for translating the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals into a European context.

Concretely, the Commission put forward an initiative to support work/life balance for parents and carers. This package seeks to modernise work/life balance policies across the EU and to deliver measures that will improve the daily lives of many families. We hope that the Council will reach a political agreement on the text shortly, opening the way for constructive negotiations with the European Parliament.

The role of families is also crucial for the successful integration of migrants. For example, evidence suggests that immigrant children and natives with immigrant parents typically have worse education and labour market outcomes than their peers with native parents. Migrant parents’ level of education and employment status has a significant impact on their children’s outcome. Investing in integration measures for family migrants, especially for women, is key for the future well-being, prosperity and cohesion of our societies – European societies – and, of course, labour markets.

The Commission also provides important financial support to various NGOs, including Eurocarers, Eurochild and COFACE Families Europe. The action undertaken by these NGOs substantially contributes to EU policy-making in the social area and increases awareness-raising on the issues related to the work of family members.

I think it is quite important to have this discussion in Parliament, and thank you so much for your interpellation.'

Saying:
'the Commission has proposed, in the recent period, rules to better protect children in cross-border family proceedings.'

Question:
Hereby I request all documents prepared to better protect children in cross-border family proceedings.

Hereby I refer to a denial of infringement proceedings againts UK, starting from 2009 when Martin Selmayr was assistant of Viviane Reding and a closed petition from Cecilia Wikström (1229/2013). https://archive.org/details/20151203Euro...

The german father has not seen his child for several years. He cannot even travel to UK out of safety reasons. It is not known to the father if his child is alive.

Yours faithfully,

Klaus Zinser
