Contre La Traite Des Êtres Humains – December 2020 Newsletter


Child Victims of Trafficking and Migration Policies, is the central theme of the December edition of the Newsletter. The publication exposes the reality whereby countries  signed up to the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, promising to protect the best interests of the child, may not in fact, be fully living up to their obligations in this regard.  

This newsletter holds a spotlight up to France specifically and explores topics such as Isolated minors without protection; Migration policies creating insecurity; how separated families can expose minors to exploitation; difficulties in accessing education; cases where the duty to protect minors is not adhered to; the imprisonment -not protection- of exploited minors and how difficult it is for minors who are victims of trafficking, to access protection.
