Children in migration in Europe and The Netherlands: European and national policies, transition to adulthood
To protect migrating children in Europe is a priority of the EU and EU Member States. This webinar addresses the policies and ambitions of the European Commission, EU Member States and The Netherlands. Special attention will be given to the transition to adulthood of unaccompanied minors.
The webinar is following up on the study of the European Migration Network (EMN) on children in migration that, on request of the European Commission, provides comparable information from 26 European countries. This EMN study maps the state of implementation of the recommendations laid down in the European Commission Communication on the protection of children in migration (2017). In addition, EMN Netherlands conducted a benchmark that compares the Dutch study results with those of other Member States and Norway. The highlights of the study and benchmark will be briefly presented in the webinar.
