Ensuring a rights perspective for migrant children

The Agency will take part in a high-level meeting in Stockholm on 24 April on Europe’s challenge to ensure a rights perspective for children in migration.

The event is being organised by the Swedish Parliament, the Ombudsman for Children of Sweden and the Foundation Allmänna Barnhuser. The Agency will contribute to a panel discussion on child rights challenges in the new Common European Asylum System.

It will be joined on the panel with the European Commission’s child rights coordinator, the Swedish State Secretary for Children, Elderly and Equality, the European Parliament rapporteur on the resettlement regulation, the Ombudsman for Children of Finland, and a representative from the UNICEF Brussels Office.
