Turning the Tide for Children on the Move


Date of publication:  21 Jun 2016 Authors:  Eurochild Publisher:  Eurochild Publication type:  Report / Study / Data

This report gives insight into the plight of migrant children attempting to reach safety in Europe. The report draws on the first hand perspectives of nine professionals working on the ground across Europe (Greece, Italy, Serbia, Hungary, Austria, Germany and France). The consensus of these professionals is that there are insufficient provisions available to meet the medical, psychological, educational and physical needs of some of the most vulnerable children. The report also highlights the dangers that such lack of provision engenders for children on the move. For example, making them more susceptible to exploitation and violence at the hands of human traffickers. Based on the experiences of those working directly with children and their families, this report offers a series of recommendations as to how the EU member states should respond to the situation and fulfill their obligations in terms of child protection.
