Children on the move or affected by migration in other ways deserve to have their rights protected and respected. In order to ensure this, Terre des Hommes – with partner organisations taking part in the Destination Unknown campaign – have developed six bridging papers to guarantee the Five Year Action Plan for Collaboration takes children’s rights into account.

Each bridging paper focuses on a different strand of children’s rights, and makes recommendations on how these elements can be incorporated into the Action Plan. Draft versions of the bridging papers were presented at the Global Forum on Migration and Development in Dhaka, Bangladesh in December 2016. Those drafts have now been edited to produce these final versions.

Terre des Hommes’ Ignacio Packer and Vincent Tournecuillert present the draft bridging papers at the Global Forum on Migration and Development in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

You can find the first edition of the Child Rights Bridging Papers here, and summaries in English, French and Spanish are available.

We would like to convey our appreciation to the representatives of the broad range of organisations who gave insightful comments and sparked stimulating discussions on the papers during the Civil Society Days of the Global Forum on Migration and Development in Dhaka.
