Ending the Detention of Migrants and Refugee Children: Best Interest Determination and Alternatives to Detention
21 Feb 2018 -  Detention is sometimes presented as a necessary tool to manage migration. Over one hundred countries continue to detain children based on their or their families’ migration status. This happens despite solid evidence of how harmful this practice is for children and their development, and despite a growing international consensus.
This panel discussion will highlight the experience of States and civil society in the dignified reception of migrant and refugee children in the field and on the borders. To do so, it will identify best practices and alternatives to detention that have been successful in ending this practice.
