The alternatives to immigration detention of children

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a Resolution on the alternatives to immigration detention of children on 3 October 2014. It reflects the concern about the fact that "the immigration detention of children is a growing phenomenon in the Council of Europe member States."

From a parental point of view it is very important that it calls the CoE member states to develop community-based systems that ensure that children are not separated from their parents while their immigration status is being resolved.
