The Children’s Rights Alliance with the support of UNICEF Ireland is holding a symposium to examine the situation of child refugees across Europe and in Ireland.

In response to the European migrant situation, the Irish Government made a commitment to relocate and resettle 4,000 refugees, prioritising children and families.

This symposium will hear from both national and international speakers on progress to date. It will provide:
• an overview of the experiences of child refugees travelling to Europe from Mediterranean routes
• examine the Irish Government’s commitments to child refugees, and
• explore how Ireland can prioritise and protect child refugees in the future.

The full programme will be announced soon - watch this space!

Please RSVP using Eventbrite here.

We look forward to seeing you at the symposium.
