Keywords: Undocumented Children

Through a series of intensive national workshops in seven countries - Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the UK, project participants of the "Building strategies to Improve the Protection of Undocumented Children in Europe" project, have come together to build mutual understanding of the problems children in an irregular migration situation face in exercising their rights to education, health care and housing in these countries.  Through these workshops participants have worked together to devise concrete solutions to the range of challenges identified.  Collaboration among stakeholders, including social service professionals, public officials, NGO representatives, and undocumented families, has allowed the development of solutions appropriate to the seven member states.
