Integration and Reintegration of

Children on the Move

Home / Explore the Series

Globally, an estimated 50 million children are on the move - leaving home, their communities and sometimes their countries for work or to escape violence, conflict, poverty or discrimination. Others may be displaced and separated, or taken from families against their will for exploitation of various kinds. While children are on the move around the world for a multitude of reasons and in a wide range of contexts, their experiences tend to be characterised by a lack of care and concern for their best interests by those with whom they come into contact.

 

Promoting the effective integration and reintegration of children on the move is an urgent priority as all regions grapple with extraordinary levels of conflict, disasters, mass migration, poverty and violence. In this How We Care series we examine how three of our Members are responding to this through their programming.

 

In 2016 Family for Every Child published global interagency Guidelines on Children’s Reintegration, which provide the legal and policy frameworks and principles for children’s reintegration, as well as guidance on various aspects of work with individual children and families.
