Children and youth on the move

The Danish Refugee Council is participating in the UN High Commissioner for Refugees' Annual Dialogue on Protection Challenges under the theme "Children on the Move". Read our recommendations here.


Children and youth are on the move, fleeing conflict, persecution, and other situations of violence, poverty, natural disaster and environmental degradation. As a protection and displacement organisation working in 40 countries, DRC encounters children on the move in areas of origin, transit and destination, including in Yemen, Libya, Turkey, and Greece.
