|- "Call for a european asylum policy adapted to unaccompanied children"|
Unaccompanied children without any legal representative in their side are present in all the 27 member States. Like adults, an important part of these youngsters fled conflicts and persecutions in their country of origin: under age recruitment, trafficking of children for prostitution, sexual exploitation, subjection to female genital mutilation, child labour...There are many good reasons for children heading to the borders, seeking for asylum and protection. The European Union is especially concerned by this question as 74 % of unaccompanied children in the world lodged their application of asylum in Europe in 2010.
♦ In order to identify the issues regarding this question, a study of comparative law entitled "Right to asylum for unaccompanied minors in the European Union" draw up for the first time a panorama of the european asylum standards for unaccompanied children.
This project, which is co-funded by the European Commission through the Fundamental Rights and Citizenship program, was coordinated by France terre d’asile (France) and carried out in partnership with six non-governmental organisations (NGOs): Consiglio Italiano per i Rifugiati (Italy), Hungarian Helsinki Committee (Hungary), Institute for Rights, Equality and Diversity (Greece), International humanitarian initiative foundation (Poland), Shelter safe
house (Latvia) and Terre des Hommes (Germany).
