A Child is a Child: Protecting children on the move from violence, abuse and exploitation

Due to the few opportunities for legal movement and migration, many of the children who are move alone are forced to rely on smugglers, putting them at risk for hazardous and exploitative situations.

Traffickers and other exploitative persons thrive especially where state institutions are weak, where organized crime flourishes, and where migrants become stuck and desperate.

UNICEF therefore presents a six-point plan, an Agenda for Action, to keep refugee and migrant children safe. Many of the action points call on states to improve mechanisms designed to protect children, encouraging a greater focus on child protection in refugee and migrant settings.
