Joint Statement on Child Protection, especially among Migrant Undocumented, Unaccompanied, Separated and Asylum Seeking Children, to enhance prevention of child trafficking

The Alliance recognizes the primacy of a child-sensitive and human rights-based approach to all aspects of anti-trafficking policies and action. The Alliance urges participating states to take the necessary measures to:1) Promote full and effective implementation of international standards; 2) Step up efforts to prevent child trafficking; 3) Strengthen the care and protection of migrant, undocumented, unaccompanied, separated and asylum seeking children to better prevent child trafficking; 4) Strengthen identification of child victims of trafficking; 5) Implement a durable and safe solution for each child based on individual case assessment taking his or her best interests as a primary consideration.
