New volume on ‘Safeguarding Children’s Rights in Immigration Law’
At the start of 2020, the book ‘Safeguarding Children’s Rights in Immigration Law’ was published by Intersentia.
The book ‘Safeguarding Children’s Rights in Immigration Law’ is a result of the collaboration between the Institute of Immigration Law and the Department of Child Law. The volume consists of a careful selection of papers which were presented at an international conference organised at Leiden University and is edited by Mark Klaassen, Stephanie Rap, Peter Rodrigues and Ton Liefaard.
Millions of children are on the move worldwide. Children are fleeing conflicts and wars. They move with or without their parents to attain a better future. This book reflects the growing concern for children and children’s rights in immigration in academia and practice and shows the diversity of issues related to immigration and children, including family reunification, detention, participation, human trafficking and the rights of siblings in the context of migration, as well as the significance of regional legal systems and infrastructures for the protection of children on the move.
The book is currently being used in the course Migration and Children’s Rights in the Advanced LL.M programme International Children’s Rights. The book can be ordered here.
