                                                  Mixed Migration and Forced Displacement are amongst the defining global issues of the early twenty-first century, attracting unprecedented interest amongst politicians, policy makers, international organizations and the general public. This increased focus is perhaps unsurprising: displacement is at its highest since the end of the Second World War. By December 2015, approximately 33 million of the world’s forcibly displaced were children. And this number doesn’t account for the many millions of at risk internal child migrants, or those children often categorized as ‘economic’ or ‘irregular’ migrants. Neither does it include the tens of millions of children around the world that are ‘left behind’ by migrating parents. Yet despite the fact that children are disproportionately affected by migration and displacement, there is limited understanding/data, programming or policy development related to the particular risks and challenges faced by such children.
