Roundtable on alternatives to child detention during migration or asylum seeking

On June 4th 2019, Terre des hommes Romania (Tdh) hosted a conference with the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM) about alternatives to child detention in the context of migration and asylum. Guests from around Europe were present to discuss the differences in policies in Belgium, Bulgaria, and Romania for accompanied and unaccompanied minors. There were also representatives from the Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA), Mineurs en exil, UNHCR Romania and Legal Resources Center (CRJ). This conference was part of an advocacy initiative called Safe, Not Detained which highlights that children are children before they are migrants and that children should not be detained. The initiative had three main elements which were drafting a road map of solutions, a child led campaign on the issue, and an advocacy event. Tdh also wrote a guide for judges and prosecutors which can be found here (in Romanian).

Child detention occurs during the migration process as either part of the reception procedure into the country, part of a Dublin transfer, or part of a return decision. Often, children are detained with their family or if there is confusion about their age. Staying in a closed detention centre can be a traumatizing and stressful experience for children and removes their rights. Child protection laws should be prioritized over migration laws, but they are often ignored. Tdh believes that there are different alternatives to keeping children in detention or public custody and that there needs to be more data collection on the issue.

During the conference, guests discussed on several practical alternatives to detention of minors. Speakers from Belgium shared that they are working on more alternatives, but are currently using return houses to host families who are in the removal process. In 2018, a repatriation centre with family units opened, but has since received criticism for being another kind of closed facility.

Another alternative idea is having a case manager assigned to each migrant who will help them through the process of immigration. Case management also helps with the next steps if migrants are not approved to stay in the country. This can help families trust in the system and can also be less costly. The UNHCR representative also noted that when alternatives to detention are applied that migrants are more likely to comply and work with authorities. Tdh is looking into alternatives that can be used in the Romanian context as detention is never in the best interest of the child. 

This conference was organised under Safe, not detained project. This project was funded by the European Program for Integration and Migration (EPIM), a joint initiative of the European Foundation Network, H&M Foundation in partnership with the Initiative for Children in Migration, Missing Children Europe and PICUM.

Alternative la plasarea în custodie publică a copiilor migranți neînsoțiți sau însoțiți de familie în contextul azilului și migrației

Prin proiectul Safe, not detained am scris un instrument de lucru pentru practicieni din domeniul justiției precum judecatori, procurori. avocați cu alterntive la detentie a copiilor migranți neînsoțiți sau însoțiți de familii.  

Puteți descărca ”Alternative la plasarea în custodie publică a copiilor migranți neînsoțiți sau însoțiți de familie în contextul azilului și migrației”, scris de avocat Daniela Zaharia Mănescu, accesând acest link.

Detenția copiilor în contextul migrației și azilului, inclusiv al acelora care sunt neînsoțiți sau care își însoțesc familiile, este un fenomen răspândit în țările Uniunii Europene. Cu toate acestea, nu există date statistice relevante despre numărul acestora, dar datele publicate de Agenția pentru Drepturi Fundamentale a Uniunii Europene (FRA), precum și de Quaker Council for European Affairs arată că practica există și este subraportată.Există divergențe semnificative între statele membre cu privire la metodologia de culegere a acestor date; în unele țări, copiii care sunt plasați în custodie publică împreună cu părinții lor nu sunt numărați separat pentru că nu fac obiectul unei ordonanțe de luare în custodie publică, ci sunt lipsiți de libertate pentru a fi împreună cu părinții lor, așa cum este cazul în România.

În România există foarte puține date publice cu privire la acest subiect. De exemplu, raportul Avocatului Poporului în urma vizitei din 19 septembrie 2017 în Centrul de Cazare a Străinilor aflați în Custodie Publică de la Otopeni arată că în centru, la data vizitei, se aflau 112 persoane din Pakistan, Irak, Iran, Mongolia, Maroc, Algeria, Bangladesh, India, Kosovo, Egipt, Tunisia, ca urmare a unor intrări în țară a imigranților pe Marea Neagră. Dintre aceștia, 46 erau minori care își însoțeau părinții plasați în custodie publică. Nu există informații cu privire la durata șederii minorilor în acest centru, dar raportul subliniază că: “Astfel, cazarea migranților aflați
în detenție administrativă este asimilată condițiilor de cazare penală, având în vedere oferta minimală a mobilierului, lipsa dotărilor suplimentare care să asigure norma corectă privind
viața privată” – Raportul Avocatului Poporului
Detenția migranților iregulari sau a solicitanților de azil apare în contextul impunerii deciziilor de returnare în țările de origine, la impunerea transferurilor Dublin sau ca parte a procedurilor de recepție pentru cei care urmăresc obținerea protecției internaționale.

În urma studiilor efectuate s-a constatat că luarea în custodie publică prezintă un impact negativ asupra dezvoltării și creșterii minorului. Impactul negativ este inclusiv asupra psihicului acestuia. Copiii ținuți în detenție sunt supuși riscului de depresie și anxietate ș prezintă frecvent simptome compatibile cu sindromul de stres post – traumatic (PTSD), cum ar fi insomnia, coșmarurile și enurezisul. Sentimentele de deznădejde și frustrare se pot
manifesta ca acte de violență impotriva lor sau a altora. Rapoartele privind efectele detenție în contextul imigrării asupra copiilor au constatat rate excesive de suicid, tentative de sucid și auto-vătămare, tulburări mentale și probleme de dezvoltare, inclusiv tulburare gravă de atașament.

Promote Rehabilitation, Empowerment of Children and Support for Youth Offenders in Romania

Project description

PRECISION or Promote Rehabilitation, Empowerment of Children and Support for Youth Offenders is a project that seeks to promote wellbeing and reduce revidivism of juvenile offenders in Romania.

The objective of the project is that: by the end of 2020, about 500 children and youth in 3 juvenile detention facilities (Detention Center of Craiova, Detention Center in Tichilesti, Brăila and Educative Center in Târgu Ocna), benefit of high quality personalized services that meet their rehabilitative needs. During their detention, children and youth will have developed the necessary knowledge and skills (literacy, vocational skills, life-skills, self-esteem, motivation, social skills etc.) for their successful rehabilitation in society.

The project will apply a two-fold approach:

1) case management – social and mental health services, such as counseling, family and peer interventions and recreational activities

2) education and vocational training within the Detention Center in Craiova, Romania,  that serves as a pilot facility for the model.

Goal and objectives

The final aim of this pilot project is that during their detention, all children and youth will have developed the necessary knowledge and skills (literacy, vocational skills, life-skills, self-esteem, motivation, social skills etc.) for their successful rehabilitation in society.

This proposed project should be seen as an initial step in a longer term intervention. The two years will lay the foundations for a change (strengthening) of the juvenile justice system in Romania. Being a stable country politically, we have every reason to believe that our investment will bring endure over time, particularly for the fact that we respond to legally-binding needs.

The model we propose will be based on Terre des hommes’ conception of the child in conflict with the law as an active and positive contribution to society rather than being considered as a risk. As a consequence, all children in conflict with the law should be supported in their development of skills and competences.

The main objectives of the project are:

  • To develop a knowledge base and tools that will serve for informed decisions for politicians and practitioners and promote better understanding of child and youth challenges in the justice system and upon exit.
  • To develop a model that is based on individual case management and consists of a package of services meeting the rehabilitative needs of juvenile offenders. Alongside, to strengthen the capacities of professionals working with children and youth in detention facilities.
  • To raise awareness and advocate on the specific needs of children and youth in detention and the importance of (pre-release) programs that target individual factors and aim at increasing self-esteem, improving mental well being and changing behavior.

The project is implemented by Terre des hommes Romania and financed by MEDICOR Foundation.

Consultancy: Mentoring for integration (of third country national children affected by Migration)

Terms of Reference / Call for Consultancy

Developing a Mentoring Program Methodology to Guide the Mentoring Initiative.

Background information:

The 21st century is an era of unprecedented human mobility, with the greatest number of people ever living outside their country of origin. The EU Member States (MSs) have been largely affected by migration over the recent years when a large number of migrants made their way to the EU, fleeing poverty and war. Children represented a large share of the population reaching Europe over the past years (approximately 30%), and overall they make around 7% of migrants living in Europe, equal to 1 in 6 of the world’s migrant children .

Migration presents both challenges and opportunities for the realization of children’s rights and for its outcomes on origin and destination societies, where research uncovered that the benefits of migration – particularly on their economies – are manifold. In its European Agenda on Migration, the EC recognized that the EU and MS’s migration policy, in order to be successful, shall be underpinned by effective integration policies. The EC also acknowledged that notwithstanding efforts made so far, third-country nationals continue to fare worse than EU citizens in terms of employment, education, and social inclusion outcomes. This applies also to children and youth. Indeed, children and newly arrived refugees are groups at higher risk of poverty and social exclusion.

C/SEE MSs require particular attention and support in their policy-making and practice on the integration of migrants and refugees, and in realizing their role within the EU based on the shared principles of solidarity and fair and balanced participation to the common effort of protecting individuals in need of protection. These countries showed very low records on fulfilling their EU commitments. The overall political climate – which currently leaves space to anti-migrants and anti-refugees positions and statements – along with the limited capacity of relevant institutions and service providers, represent major obstacles to the implementation of EU commitments and subsequently of effective integration measures in the countries targeted by this intervention.

Recognizing those growing needs and challenges to implement more effective integration measures, MINT projectaims to contribute to the successful integration of third country national children residing in the EU, by enabling children and youth to fulfill their full potential and to lead secure, active and productive lives in the host societies, and enabling a better understanding of the intercultural benefits that interaction between newly arrived migrants and host societies bring.

While the project embraces an inclusive approach, it will specifically support the integration of newly arrived children, including separated and unaccompanied children, paying particular attention to the gender-specific barriers to integration of girls and boys.

The project builds on promising practices and tested models supporting the inclusion of vulnerable children, including migrant and refugee populations. In particular, the core methodology from the Big Brother Big Sister approach (also successfully applied to the reintegration of trafficked children) will be adapted to working with TCN children; whereas learnings and resources from the SHARE Network will be built upon and age-adapted. The experience of the Mario network in child and youth-led advocacy and awareness raising, including child-led video production, will be furthered and scaled up.

Project Objectives

The Project will promote the inclusion of TCN children (in Romania, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovenia) integrated in the social, cultural and political life of the host societies, as well as in education, through mentoring support; online language courses and cultural introduction; child-led awareness raising and advocacy actions on their lived realities and the huge benefits for host societies.

Main outputs include a methodological framework comprising of a mentoring guidance (with a potential of replicability in other MSs) complemented with child-led awareness raising and advocacy guidelines, child-friendly e-learning integration tools and national and international advocacy events supported by child-led video material.

This two-year project seeks to achieve the following specific objectives:

  1. Specific Objective 1: By the end of the intervention, at least 120 recently arrived children in the four targeted countries are enrolled in (formal or informal) education and actively participate in local recreational and social activities, thanks to the support provided by trained peer mentors and the building up of cohesive peer groups.
  2. Specific Objective 2: By the end of the intervention, 1000 third-country national children in the four targeted countries have acquired basic knowledge and skills to engage in social relations, thanks to trainings on local languages and socio-cultural context provided by the project.
  3. Specific Objective 3: By the end of the project, at least 240 TCN children and local youths are empowered and benefit from a welcoming atmosphere within the host society, thanks to the implementation of child-led awareness raising and advocacy initiatives aimed to counter stereotypes and to spread a positive image of migrant and refugee communities at local and national level.

Objectives of this consultancy:

The main objective of this consultancy is to develop the various elements of the mentoring methodology (indicated in Specific Objective 01) through which youth volunteers (18-24 years) will mentor and support recently arrived migrant children (under the age of 18) to ensure easier and more successful integration process.

The mentoring program will last for 9 months in average, divided into two main sessions: from July 2019 to March 2020, and March 2020 to December 2020. Through the program A minimum of 120 TCN children are supported in their integration in local host communities (30 in Each country). The program should include individual meetings between children and mentors, indoor group activities and outdoor cultural and recreational activities.

  1. The Selection and recruitment process for both youth mentors and mentored children, including recommended selection criteria.
  2. The 2-days training course planned for the mentors (including sample Training agenda and the outlines of the training curriculum).
  3. Guidance on pairing newly arriving TCN children with a youth mentor.
  4. Suggested indoor and outdoor activities that could be considered within the program, where applicable.
  5. Best practices/ recommendations on how to overcome cultural and language barriers within the project, as well as ensuring gender balance and equality throughout the project implementation.
  6. Guidance for the individual meetings between youth mentors & children.
  7. Supervision and monitoring of regular meetings and activities.
