European Parliament discussion on protecting migrant children

On 8 December, FRA presented key findings of its report on Guardianship for unaccompanied children at a roundtable in the European Parliament.

The roundtable was organised by SOS Children’s Villages and hosted by members of the European Parliament. Speakers discussed some of the proposals of the Pact on Migration and Asylum and how they could affect the rights of migrant children.

Participants welcomed the response from the European Union and Member States to children fleeing Ukraine. They suggested the experience could be used to draw lessons for the future and for other migrant children.
