In the Final Report in the implementation of the Action Plan on protecting refugee and migrant children in Europe (2017-2019), the Council of Europe takes stock of achievements and sets out new objectives.
Here is an overview highlighting in detail the actions carried out by the Council of Europe as a solid and coherant response aimed at protecting children in migration. The overview includes relevant resources linked to the results of the Action Plan.
The Special Representative has launched a new publication “Promoting child-friendly approaches in the area of migration: standards, guidance and current practices”. The compilation is structured in four comprehensive themes:
- entrance and identification
- child-friendly asylum and migration processes
- special protection measures
- durable solutions
The purpose of the publication is to serve as inspiration for member states that are in the process of expanding good and promising examples to consistent practices.
The Council of Europe Secretary General's Special Representative on Migration and Refugees, Drahoslav Štefánek, explains what the organisation is doing to safeguard human rights of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
