Panel Discussion: unaccompanied and separated children on the move along the EAMR


The East African Migration Routes (EAMR) project is a 10-year multi-phase regional project (2019-2029) implemented by Save the Children, supported and funded by the Swiss Government. The overall goal of the project is that “countries along the East African Migration Routes have child protection policies and adequate organizational capacities to ensure protection and enable self-reliance of children and youth in vulnerable displacement situations.” The regional project adopts a cross-border and route-based approach, with a focus on urban environments in Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt.

Within the scope of the EAMR Project, Save the Children is organising a Virtual Panel Discussion facilitated and moderated by the Mixed Migration Centre to discuss the realities and protection of Unaccompanied and Separated Children on the Move (UASCs) in the region. Different panellists will explore the gender dimensions, protection risks, barriers to accessing services, conflict sensitivity, and trafficking in persons in relation to UASCs.
