Final Conference

The Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM) will hold an international workshop entitled:

"Children First and Foremost: Realising the rights of children and families in an irregular migration situation"

on Tuesday 26 February 2013 at the Residence Palace (155 Rue de la Loi, Block C, 1040, Brussels, Belgium)


This international conference seeks to consolidate both PICUM’s work on undocumented children and PICUM’s two-year capacity-building project entitled “Building Strategies to Protect Children in an Irregular Migration Situation in Europe.” The conference will highlight the difficulties undocumented children face in accessing rights such as education, healthcare and housing, and the good practice strategies that have been developed to surmount the practical and administrative barriers to accessing rights. This will also be an opportunity for PICUM to present the project’s final publication, a guide on protecting the rights of undocumented children in Europe.

Intended for civil society advocates, front-line organisations, public officials, policy makers, professionals and social service providers, this event will guarantee a rich participation of experts and professionals working with undocumented children.

Please see agenda in English, French and Spanish.

Please see admin note for practical and logistical information.
