Children have their say - opening of the Fundamental Rights Conference 2010

Children present the results of a workshop organised by the FRA in cooperation with Eurochild at the Fundamental Rights Conference 2010 in Brussels.

The children's workshop brought together children from Belgium, Cyprus, Malta, Sweden, the UK and representatives from the Separated Children in Europe Programme. The focus of the workshop was the issue of ensuring justice and protection for separated and unaccompanied, asylum-seeking children. The group involved children who have themselves lived through this experience, but also children active in national participation structures which have debated issues of integration and access to services.
