In 2014 the number of asylum applicants considered to be unaccompanied minors reached 23,000 and in the first half of 2015 alone, more than 100,000 children have claimed asylum in Europe, a number expected to rise. The Commission has committed to closing the gap between national or regional migration laws and children’s rights; yet migrant children, especially those undocumented, end up victims of failings in laws and policies. Subject to most of the same enforcement practices as adults, access to education, health, and protection services is restricted. Governments across Europe have implemented laws and policies to protect the rights of undocumented children. A report of the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants, published in February 2015 presents inspiring examples across Europe that others could follow.
