Review of the implementation of the life projects recommendation (CM/Rec (2007)9)

Children who will remain in Europe should have access to durable solutions for their integration.

The Committee of Ministers Recommendation on life projects for unaccompanied migrant minors (2007)9 provides practical tools for States to favour children’s integration. Ten years on, the Council of Europe will conduct a review of the implementation of this recommendation and develop practical tools for States to facilitate implementation of life projects for unaccompanied children.
