Left Out in the Cold. The vulnerable children on Britain's doorstep and the urgency of post-Brexit family reunion rules

Refugee Rights Europe

Refugee Rights Europe

Abstract: In the context of increased ‘securitisation’ at the British border, the fundamental rights of unaccompanied children are violated on a daily basis in Northern France. Safeguarding and protection systems appear to be entirely excluded from the current deterrence-based approach, despite national and international obligations to uphold the rights of the child. This report provides an in-depth on the ground update of the ongoing situation for children in Northern France, many of whom hope to reach the UK, but who keep finding themselves trapped between the sealed British border and the heavy-handed approach of the French authorities.
