#LostinMigration exposes desperate circumstances for lone migrant children in Europe

1 March 2017

Lost in Migration

An influential coalition of children’s’ rights charities, including ECPAT UK, have today called on EU and national ministers to end the disappearance, suffering and exploitation of children in migration.

The call today arises from recommendations made at the Lost in Migration conference earlier this year, hosted by Missing Children Europe and the Maltese President's Foundation.

At the conference, 160 professionals from across Europe took stock of the situation and the current challenges of this children’s rights crisis, making 17 recommendations essential to improving the situation of migrant children in Europe who frequently go missing.
