Protecting children on the move from violence, abuse and exploitation

Millions of children are on the move across international borders – fleeing violence and conflict, disaster or poverty, in pursuit of a better life. Deprived, unprotected, and often alone, children on the move can become easy prey for traffickers and others who abuse and exploit them.

This report shows how the lack of safe and legal pathways for refugee and migrant children feeds a booming market for human smuggling and puts them at risk of violence, abuse and exploitation.

Building on recent UNICEF policy proposals, it sets out ways that governments can better protect these vulnerable children.
