SEMINAR CANCELLED! Protected on Paper? An Analysis of Nordic Country Responses to Children Seeking Asylum

Research profile seminar

Unfortunately we have had to cancel the seminar on the UNICEF report.

The report reviews relevant national legislative and policy frameworks, examines how these are implemented, documents good practices, and highlights gaps in national standards and their compliance to international standards.

It makes some broad recommendations on how to strengthen and extend legal, policy and practice frameworks to ensure the full realization and protection of child asylum seekers' rights and entitlements in the Nordic region.

The report further provides country-specific detailed, practical recommendations on how to ensure protection and welfare for asylum-seeking children.
