Since May 2017, Missing Children Europe has been working on a project aiming named AMINA to close the protection gaps that lead to the disappearance and exploitation of children in migration in Europe. AMINA will contribute to an environment where policy and legislative processes take the best interest of children as their primary consideration.
The number of unaccompanied children who disappeared [in Sweden] is equivalent to 2 classes of children disappearing every month. What sort of society would accept this?
Amir Hashemi-Nik, Development Manager at the Stockholm County Administrative Board
Too often failing cooperation and coordination, nationally and transnationally, between these stakeholders becomes an obstacle in achieving what we all ultimately aim to do: bringing these children to safety and protecting them from harm.
Maud de Boer-Buquicchio, President of Missing Children Europe and UN Special Rapporteur on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography
