This report from the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) provides data on migration throughout the EU from 1-30 June 2017. The report includes data on the child protection situation for migrant children, particularly the identification, emergency placement and accommodation of unaccompanied children.
Greek authorities on the island of Lesbos are inaccurately identifying and registering unaccompanied migrant children as adults upon their arrival, denying young people the care and protection they deserve.
This report presents the findings from an assessment on the profile, drivers and intentions of refugee and migrant children who arrived in Italy and Greece in 2016 and 2017 and aims to enable Italian, Greek and European policy makers, local service providers and humanitarian actors to provide appropriate accommodations and services for migrant children.

The present study analyzes the risk factors responsible for the exposure of migrant and refugee children to physical, psychological, and sexual violence and exploitation in Greece in the context of the ongoing migrant humanitarian crisis. It documents sexual and physical abuse of children inside migrant camps and reports new information about the commercial sexual exploitation of migrant children in the main cities of Greece. This research also explores the existing gaps and challenges in intervention efforts that contribute to victimization of migrant children.
