Building Futures, Sharing Good Practices: Migrant Children’s Transition to Adulthood

The multilateral Project “Building Futures, Sharing Good Practices: Migrant Children’s Transition to Adulthood – UACFutures”, aimed to foster improvements in the support provided to unaccompanied migrant children in their transition to adulthood at the European level, with a particular focus on Greece, Spain and the Netherlands.

To achieve its objective, the Project addressed four key areas of particular importance for unaccompanied children during the transition to adulthood: (1) psychological impact and support; (2) legal support and access to basic rights; (3) access to education and the labour market; (4) access to accommodation.

 The Project addressed a topic of priority for the Council of Europe as the unaccompanied migrant and refugee children who turn 18 are faced with an abrupt withdrawal of protective measures they were entitled to as children  

In 2019, the Council of Europe adopted guidelines that it recommends to the governments of the member states to support young refugees in their transition to adulthood. In this video, Janeta Hanganu, Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary General on Migration and Refugees, and Florian Cescon, Head of the Youth Policy Division in the Youth Department, explain how to use these guidelines.
