About the webinar:

Anyone involved in advocacy on European or national policy concerning the return of children in migration from EU member states to countries of origin will be interested in this webinar.

Lecturers will introduce new guidance from UN and international organisations and civil society organisations on the procedural and practical measures which should be in place. It will highlight common advocacy messages calling on governments to ensure that the legal, policy and procedural foundation stones are in place when decisions on migrant children’s lives are made.
