These series of 6 papers are the second edition of the child rights bridging papers for the Civil Society Days of the Global Forum on Migration and Development (Dhaka, Bangladesh, 8 to 10 December 2016). It examines specificities affecting children on the move and other children affected by migration related to

  1. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
  2. Diaspora and migrant associations
  3. Migrants stranded in distress
  4. Migrant women and girls
  5. The interaction of international mechanisms of migrants’ rights protection
  6. Labour rights for migrant workers

The draft versions were prepared to provide input for the Civil Society Days of the Global Forum on Migration and Development (Dhaka, Bangladesh, 8 to 10 December 2016).

They are looking at different points of the 5-year Action Plan for Collaboration from a child rights perspective. Discussions will continue during the Civil Society Days (and beyond) to strengthen efforts to bridge the migration, development and child rights perspectives in the 5 year Action Plan for Collaboration.

Each one of the six bridging papers is structured in a similar way with 6 to 8 key recommendations for action.

All documents are available in English, Spanish and French:

The bridging papers were drafted by Lisa Myers, Mirela Shuteriqi and Ignacio Packer for Terre des Hommes and the Destination Unknown Campaign. Appreciation goes out to the representatives of a broad range of organisations who provided insightful comments and stimulating discussions to prepare these initial papers.
