Communiqué de Human Rights Watch – « France : Des enfants livrés à eux-mêmes malgré le Covid-19 »

Originally published by on 25/03/2020


Press release from Human Rights Watch warns of unaccompanied migrant children being deprived of essential services in Marseille and Gap. Among other things, child protection authorities in affected Regions are struggling to provide shelter and other social services to unaccompanied migrant children, who in many cases live in precarious conditions without access to essential services. Because of certain containment measures taken by the French government on March 16, 2020, combined with precarious conditions that are prevalent with unaccompanied minors, migrant children cannot follow containment measures imposed by the French government and are therefore at greater risk. Local lawyers are calling on the departments to provide shelter for these at risk youth, regardless of their legal status and age. Furthermore, Human Rights Watch documented instances of court orders for the temporary placement of unaccompanied minors that are not enforced.
