European legal and policy framework on immigration detention of children

The meeting in Brussels on 1 December sought to take stock of the implementation of the European Commission’s Recommendation on the protection of children in migration adopted in April 2017.

Member States raised such challenges as how to address married children, children in detention and missing children.

The Agency presented its work on guardianship, on promotion of alternatives to detention, on the hotspots in Greece and Italy, and on mapping of legal minimum ages.
