Children in migration

From April to June 2017, the Secretariat of the NCRC completed the data collection phase of the specific survey on children in migration.

The survey has been carried out by means of self-administered questionnaires on tablets, developed on the basis of existing international surveys also used for the Child Rights Indicators (PISA, HBSC) and on questions tailored to the specific situation of the target group(s).

In total, 99 classes of children aged 12 to 23, selected through cluster sampling in special classes welcoming newly arrived foreign minors, have participated in this research.

Specific attention has been paid to free and informed participation and privacy protection. Feedback with regards to the preliminary results of the survey has been provided to the children who participated in the research in June 2017, in a child-friendly fashion.
