Overview

The aim of this report is to present key findings and recommendations relating to the integration of children on the move- primarily from the Middle East to Europe- who are currently residing in Greece in alternative care arrangements, including foster care and supported independent living. Through this work we aim to contribute to better-targeted policymaking and practice on children’s integration in Greece. Through qualitative research with 22 adult professionals and foster parents, and 22 unaccompanied children in alternative care, the study explores opportunities for integration as well as the challenges that remain to be addressed for these children. Findings and recommendations focus on both the successes of integration and the factors that hinder it, as well as actions to be implemented in order to foster the successful integration of unaccompanied children in the future.
