EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee

Unaccompanied minors in the EU inquiry

Inquiry status: open

Call for evidence published.

Scope of the inquiry

Unaccompanied minors are migrant children below the age of 18 from non-EU countries who are not accompanied by a parent or customary guardian. They are considered to be particularly vulnerable and in need of special protection and care. Numbers of unaccompanied minors are currently increasing at a time when the EU is struggling to cope with the ongoing refugee crisis. The Committee intends to examine the issue of unaccompanied minors, and EU policy in this area, to encourage debate and official action. We would welcome anyone who has experience or interest in this area to contribute to our inquiry.

The deadline for submissions has now passed; if you still wish to make a submission, please contact the clerk
