CONFERENCE October 2007

Conference October 2007

The Conference entitled « The Migration of unaccompanied children in Europe : the contexts of origin, the migration routes, the reception systems » took place on the 10th-11th October 2007 at the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme et de la Société at the University of Poitiers.

This conference was organised by the research laboratory MIGRINTER and the International Juvenile Justice Observatory with the participation of the Jacques Berque Center for the studies of Human and Social sciences in Morocco and the support of the Social and Human sciences section of UNESCO.

Over the two days, 43 papers were presented (24 in the plenary sessions and 19 in 2 series of workshops )by researchers, professionals and practitioners, involved in various associations.  These participants, with ranging backgrounds and experience, tackled the numerous legal and social problems that the independent child migration involves, as much in their countries of origin as in the societies receiving them. More than 200 people coming from over 25 countries attended the conference, including the speakers, participants and the general public.

 The plenary sessions were simultaneously translated into 3 languages: French, English and Spanish. Videos are available on the University of Poitiers website.

PUCAFREU Research

Pucafreu Resarch Project

MIGRINTER (CNRS) was the coordinating body on the PUCAFREU research project (« Promoting Unaccompanied Children’s Access to Fundamental Rights in the European Union ») whilst leaning on a network of 5 partner organisations in the Member States which made up the geographical scope of the project : « Hors la Rue » (France), Service Droit des Jeunes (Belgium), « Fondation La Merced Migraciones » (Spain),  « ASGI – Associazioni per glistudigiuridicisull’immigrazione » (Italy), and the « PARADA » Foundation (Romania). The University of Roma Spaienza (Italy) also brought its expertise to the project as an associated partner.

The main objective of the project was to analyse the reasons which hinder the access of unaccompanied and separated children lacking protection to their fundamental rights guaranteed by international legislation and to promote a better access to these rights.

The general absence of statistics documenting the living conditions of migrant children neglected by child protection services justified the undertaking of such a study in 5 countries: Belgium, Spain, France and Italy as countries of destination or transit and Romania as a country of origin for this type of migration. The originality of this study was to explore the perceptions of the children and young people met during the study, whilst collecting their stories regarding their own situation and their experiences within child protection services in the case that they had access.

Firstly, the research contained a theoretical analysis of the legal questions, essentially concerning the interpretation and adequate application of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child to the situation of unaccompanied and separated children living in a EU Member State.

Once the construction of a common methodology was completed, research in the field was simultaneously conducted, between the autumn of 2011 and the summer of 2012, in the 5 States which constituted the scope of the project. This research aimed to explore the living conditions and the activities of unaccompanied and separated children lacking protection in each of these countries, the eventual difficulties faced by them in order accesstheir fundamental rights as well as the reasons explaining their lack of protection.

The results of the different studies undertaken have shown a heterogeneity which is principally linked to the different patternsoftreatment and care of this population, resulting in different profiles and realities in each territory. Nevertheless, the research highlighted the general deficiencies of institutional practices and inadequate treatment, provoking the expulsion of migrant children from State protection, which in itself is contrary to the standards of international law.

PUCAFREU Conference

The provisional results of the PUCAFREU research were presented during the International conference « Unaccompanied and separated children lacking protection in Europe : What reasons lead to their lack of protection ? » which took place at the Maison de Sciences de l’Homme et de la Société in Poitiers from the 22nd-24th October 2012 Around a hundred …
