Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly Resolution 1810 (2011): Unaccompanied children in Europe: issues of arrival, stay and return

The Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly establishes that child protection rather than immigration control should be the driving concern in how countries deal with unaccompanied children. Unaccompanied children should never be detained. The detention of children on the basis of their or their parents’ immigration status is contrary to the best interests of the child and constitutes a child rights violation as defined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
