This report from UNICEF highlights the many dangers, risks, and challenges faced by unaccompanied refugee and migrant children travelling to Europe on their own to escape conflict, poverty, or other forms of oppression.
Through the voices of children, parents and staff working in the region, this report by Save the Children presents a glimpse into the struggles faced by refugee and displaced children and families from Syria. The report is primarily based on children’s stories as told to Save the Children in urban areas in Lebanon and in camps and urban areas in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Drawings and other playful sessions were used with the children to help them tell stories of their everyday lives without the negative impact a deep interview might have.
De nombreux enfants originaires d’États dévastés par la guerre, qui voyagent souvent seuls, fuient actuellement des abus dans leurs pays d’origine pour chercher refuge au sein de l’Union européenne, a affirmé aujourd’hui Human Rights Watch. Beaucoup d’entre eux tentent d’échapper au recrutement d’enfants soldats, aux mariages de mineurs et aux attaques menées contre des écoles, ou encore à d’autres conséquences de la guerre en Syrie et en Afghanistan. D’autres fuient les discriminations or à l’encontre des réfugiés afghans en Iran.
