Human Rights of Migrant Children


This research summarises how international law protects migrant children. It focuses on the protection given to children by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which is also applicable to nonnationals. The report concentrates on and examines in detail the rights that are most relevant to child migrants. Further the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families, and other relevant human rights instruments, are considered. Finally, a brief section is dedicated to the protection afforded to child refugees and victims of trafficking under international law.
