Let Children be Children: Lessons from the Field on the Protection and Integration of Refugee and Migrant Children in Europe

Date of event: 
04 Dec 2017 - 9:30am to 1:00pm
Committee of the Regions premises, Rue Belliard 101, B-1040 Brussels.
Type of event: 

Eurochild and SOS Children’s Villages International will launch their report documenting case studies from across Europe on the protection and integration of refugee and migrant children

The compendium documents how child protection services are responding to the specific needs of refugee and migrant children, and aims to contribute to solutions to provide quality family and community-based care

The event organised by Eurochild and SOS Children’s Villages and hosted by the European Committee of the Regions, will bring together decision makers, CSOs and relevant stakeholders from EU, national and local levels to discuss how the responses of child protection systems can be improved to better protect the rights of refugee and migrant children. 

The debate will focus on how lessons from the ground can better inform policy implementation. We will also exchange on how actors from EU, national and local levels can better cooperate to ensure that refugee and migrant children are treated as children. 

Eurochild members can ask for sponsorship (travel and accomodation).
