Subject to Whim: The treatment of unaccompanied migrant children in the French Hautes-Alps

This report tells the tale of unaccompanied migrant children who venture into the French Hautes-Alps in search of refuge. It talks about the challenges these children face during their journey, including the legal and technical barriers they encounter once they reach their destination. Special focus is given to the issue of flawed age assessment procedures performed by the French authorities, which ultimately result in children being denied access to needed protection.
