Video: Interview with MEP Michèle Striffler

MEP Michèle Striffler, European Parliament Permanent Rapporteur on Humanitarian Aid, spoke to Plan EU Office ahead of the European Week of Action for Girls 2013.

MEP Striffler called for the EU to do more to put adolescent girls at the centre of the humanitarian agenda. "The views of children and adolescents are not generally sought or considered," she explains, "But listening to them is one of the most powerful weapons we have to promote and protect their rights."
