All issues affect the lives of children.

6 BPsThe series of bridging papers are looking at different points of the 5-year Action Plan for Collaboration from a child rights perspective. The aim is to examine the specificities affecting children in the context of migration and inform more coherent approaches from a child rights standpoint.

The draft version was prepared to provide input for the Civil Society Days of the Global Forum on Migration and Development (Istanbul, Turkey, 12th and 13th October 2015).

Each one of the six bridging papers is structured in a similar way with 5 or 6 key recommendations for action.  All documents are available in English, Spanish and French.
