On the 5th of March 2015 took place the European Public Conference ‘Closing a protection gap for European children on the move’. This conference was under the patronage of Nathalie Griesbeck, Member of the European Parliament . It was organized in the framework of the Mario project, a pan European child protection project led by Terre des Hommes, with the support of the European Commission and the Oak Foundation.

The main topic of the conference :

European Children on the move are not adequately protected in Europe. We need to establish holistic systems that protect all children without discrimination, including those having an EU citizenship and moving within Europe. We need to reinforce transnational cooperation among States. We need to overcome “categorisation” of children that can lead to discrimination.
