  • Action Plan on Unaccompanied Minors 2010 - 2014

    Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council - Action Plan on Unaccompanied Minors 2010 - 2014 (6/5/2010 - COM (2010) 213 final), 17 pages

    The Action Plan on Unaccompanied Minors, adopted on 6 May 2010, proposes an EU approach based on three main strands for action: prevention of unsafe migration and trafficking; reception and procedural guarantees in the EU; identification of durable solutions.

    The Action sets out the goal that the future of each unaccompanied minor should be taken by competent authorities- preferably within six months- from the moment the child is found on EU territory or EU borders. It is based on ten principles to help guide EU institutions and Member States in their future approach towards unaccompanied children.
