Returning unaccompanied children: fundamental rights considerations

Returning unaccompanied children: fundamental rights considerations

From a fundamental rights point of view, returning migrants to their home countries is a sensitive activity. EU Member States face particular challenges in applying the requirements flowing from EU law to unaccompanied children, the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has observed. This focus paper therefore aims to support national authorities entrusted with return-related tasks in applying the Return Directive to unaccompanied children in full compliance with fundamental rights. It complements a FRA report on immigration detention of children, published in 2017.
