Resettlement as a Protection Tool for Refugee Children
Globally, nearly 100,000 – or slightly less than 1% – of all refugee and asylum-seeking children are separated from their families. Children in this situation are at risk of multiple violations and harmful practices such as child labour and early marriage. This article explores the need to ensure that new and existing initiatives to resettle refugee children at risk, including unaccompanied children, are better able to serve their unique protection needs in today’s global context.
