ECPAT UK cross-border cooperation briefing

The protection of children in migration is dependent on effective multi-agency and cross-border approaches where the best interests of the child are always the primary consideration in all actions taken. However, current policy and legal frameworks across Member States are significantly lacking, frontline responses are insufficient and cross-border cooperation needs considerable improvement. Our briefing with the Children in Migration Initiative, How better cross-border cooperation will prevent trafficking of children in migration, outlines current challenges relating to protecting children in migration from exploitation as well as the key components to effective cross-border cooperation.
