Safety and dignity for refugee and migrant children: Recommendations for alternatives to detention and appropriate care arrangements in Europe

This advocacy brief was jointly produced by IOM, UNHCR and UNICEF based on a desk review of practices in 38 European States in relation to the detention of asylum-seeking, refugee and migrant children, either upon or after arrival, for reasons relating to immigration or asylum. It seeks to put forward and urge for practical alternatives and appropriate care arrangements for children based on existing promising practices in the region.
