Start date: Nov 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

THE CONTEXT Refugee and migrant flows in Europe are at an unprecedented high. EU and Mediterranean countries are facing a humanitarian emergency involving much more than 25.000 unaccompanied migrant children (UMC). The lack of sufficiently detailed information means this does not receive the international attention that it deserves. An Unaccompanied Migrant Children is a non-EU national or stateless person below the age of 18 who arrives on the territory of the EU States unaccompanied by an adult responsible for him/her, and for as long as s/he is not effectively taken into the care of such a person. In this frame EU and Member States are supposed to ensure that children in the context of migration are treated first and foremost as children and that the principle of the child’s best interests takes precedence over migration management objectives. UMC are particularly vulnerable due to the critical condition of their migratory plan, many of them end up with exploitation, prolonged detention, unable to access their rights to education, health care, or to seek asylum, and left without adequate legal protections in domestic legal systems throughout the continent. This underlines the urgency of measures to support unaccompanied migrant children.GENERAL OBJECTIVETo strengthen and support coherent approaches to unaccompanied migrant children in the frame of youth work and Euro-Mediterranean cooperation.SPECIFIC OBJECTIVETo foster capacity of youth workers to guarantee rights and protection of unaccompanied migrant children in the Euro-Mediterranean region.TRAINING COURSEDuration: 10 daysVenue: Caltanissetta, ITTC will provide training on “Child Rights Programming” by promoting a ‘child rights-based approach’ in youth work.
