SAFETY AND FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS AT STAKE FOR CHILDREN ON THE MOVE: CALL FOR THE EU AND EUROPEAN COUNTRIES TO IMPLEMENT A CHILD RIGHTS PERSPECTIVE IN THE RECEPTION OF MIGRATING CHILDREN (by Karin Fagerholm, Rhea Verheul)



An analysis of the European response to the increased influx of migrants reveals that Europe is failing to address these issues. While border control and other measures to restrict immigration are at the top of the agenda for both the EU as well as individual countries, actions to protect children are not taken. The EU Agenda for Migration, guiding the EU institutions and Member States in handling the influx, mentions only a single action regarding children, which is placed in a footnote. Also, from a child rights perspective, the actions taken by individual states are worrying, in particular the restrictions possibilities for family reunification that many states have announced.
