Background and aim of the event

The problem of missing unaccompanied migrant minors is a vast and complex challenge, which can only be addressed effectively through a coordinated strategic approach among member states, including the different stakeholders concerned.

The conference aims to tackle the problem from a European and cross border angle, involving law enforcement and migration authorities, child protection services, guardianship services, hotlines for missing children, reception centres and academia. The goal of the conference will be to discuss practical building blocks to effectively tackle this growing problem.

The conference will open with the launch of a unique art project, bringing the voices and stories of missing unaccompanied migrant minors in focus.
