Safe & Sound: what States can do to ensure respect for the best interests of unaccompanied and separated children in Europe

This document aims to support States in the EU and EFTA in applying the best interests principle as a primary consideration when dealing with unaccompanied and separated children in their territory. This document recognizes that applying this principle may take a variety of forms and thus does not seek to prescribe any one set of structures or procedures. It does, however, offer suggestions of elements that States may choose to include so as to meet international legal standards and obligations.
