Webinar: Immigration detention of children in the EU

On Thursday 3 June 2pm CET, the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) together with Saskia Bricmont, Greens/EFA MEP, will hold an online event on immigration detention of children in the EU, the current situation and implementation of the legal framework in EU countries. The event will consider ways forward and alternatives to detention, including in light of the new proposals of the EU Pact on Migration and Asylum and EU strategy on the rights of the child.

The event is organised on the occasion of the launch of the CADRE project (“Children’s Alternatives to Detention protecting their Rights in Europe”), seeking to promote the expansion, implementation and improvement of viable and effective alternatives to detention for migrant children in full respect of their rights in the EU, co-ordinated by the ICJ in partnership with seven national and international partners:
