Insan participates with Terre des Hommes International Federation to the Internation al Campaign "Destination Unknown" to Protect Children on the Move.
Millions of children around the world are on the move. They lost home. They are escaping poverty, violence or disaster. They may end up exploited or abused. Their destination is unknown. Let's mobilize to protect their rights.
The following report explores the incompatibility of recent decisions, by the General Security and the Ministry of Education regarding migrants and their children, with national and international legislation. In particular, the first part of this report analyzes a recent unpublished General Security decision whose impact has denied residency renewal for children of migrant workers belonging to category three and four. The second part of this report looks at a series of decisions by the Ministry of Education limiting the enrollment of non-Lebanese children to public and semi-private schools.
The following report explores child abuse and maltreatment and parental disciplinary approaches in three respective groups; Lebanese children, documented children of migrants, and undocumented children of migrants.
In doing so, this report is the first to focus on child protection risks in migrant populations in Lebanon. This research starts from the assumption that migrant children are at greater risk of being subjected to child abuse and maltreatment than their Lebanese counterparts.
