Synthesis report and inform on “Approaches to Unaccompanied Minors Following Status Determination in the EU plus Norway” are now published

We are pleased to inform you that the synthesis report and the corresponding inform of the EMN study “Approaches to Unaccompanied Minors Following Status Determination in the EU plus Norway” are now available.

The aim of this EMN study was to explore the situation of unaccompanied minors (UAMs) who have been granted a residence permit or issued a return decision, and the approaches established by (Member) States to their integration or return during the period 2014-2017. Based on national contributions from 25 Member States plus Norway, the study also examines how the various States deals with UAMs who cannot be returned immediately, or who turned to 18 years and the cases of UAMs’ disappearances. Finally, the study presents comparable data on the scale of unaccompanied minors in the (Member) States at present, as well as over time (2014-2017), supplementing it with national statistics where available.
