Council of Europe
Subject headingsRefugee and migrant children should be treated first and foremost as children. ; Human rights and rule of law
The mass arrivals of those seeking refuge in Europe from war and persecution, as well as the continuing movement of persons across the Mediterranean and Turkey, act as a constant reminder of the precarious situation refugee and migrant children find themselves in; as well as the humanrights violations they are confronted with. All Council of Europe member States are affected by the refugee/migration flows, either directly or indirectly, as countries of origin, transit, destination or resettlement. The Action Plan is based on a clear principle: in the context of migration, children should be treated first and foremost as children.
