Agenda

Project Presentation: 'For a European Charter for the Rights of Unaccompanied Minor Migrants and Separated Children'

Meeting

Date

Wednesday 28th of June 2017

Description

The unaccompanied minors’ phenomenon in Europe has reached such dimensions that put us in front of a genuine emergency and a real humanitarian crisis. Almost 25.000 unaccompanied minors in the 2014 applied for asylum in EU and statistics show that the number is constantly increasing. In 2016 more than 27.000 unaccompanied minors (UNHCR) arrived only in Italy. In 2015 over 10.000 of them literally disappeared all over Europe, and 6.000 only in Italy (Europol). European Institutions already produced a several measures.

The project for a European Charter stipulates and formalises in a single text the fundamental rights of the unaccompanied migrant minors and it started on June 2015 in San Gimignano during the workshop “The conditions in Italy and in the World of the Refugees Minors and the Routes of the Minors Migrations”.

The objective is twofold: on one side to get the support of the European Parliament to define a frame of the fundamental rights for the unaccompanied migrant minors; on the other side to promote from the earliest stage of the Charter a cultural campaign in the UE Member States in order to involve and to raise awareness of citizens, organizations and institutions and to fight the spread of phenomenon like racism and xenophobia in the European Union.
