Best interests of the child and the Dublin System (C-648/11)

I just read an interesting Article on the European Law Blog website in regards to yet another Best Interests of the Child decision (Case C-648/11).  Well worth a read… But to sumarise… Its YET ANOTHER declaration that a child’s best interests must be of ‘Primary Consideration’…

‘guided by the primary consideration of the child’s best interests (Article 24(2) of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (‘the Charter’))’

As well as other various references…

As highlighted in the case ….

Article 24 of the Charter is based on the New York Convention on the Rights of the Child signed on 20 November 1989 and ratified by all the Member States, Article 3 of which provides that, ‘[i]n all actions concerning children, whether undertaken by public or private social welfare institutions, courts of law, administrative authorities or legislative bodies, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration’.
