This rapid assessment aims to address the lack of information on policies and services of government agencies and non-governmental organizations responsible for protecting the rights of child and adolescent migrants returning to their countries of origin in the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, and Mexico. It focuses on actions to restore the child or adolescent’s right to family life and community integration. In particular, it seeks to identify operational and institutional deficiencies and economic, social and cultural factors that generate gaps between national and international legislative developments. The ultimate goal of this publication is to serve as a basis for model policies and services that ensure adequate protection of the rights of migrant children and long-term reintegration.

Among the obstacles and challenges identified and described here, the lack of coordination between entities and, therefore, the existence of ambiguities in the implementation of programs and services, limit funding and program coverage.
