ISS presentation at international webinar on alternative care for children on the move

On 11 September, Dr Chrissie Gale, a international child protection expert representing ISS, presented at an international webinar organised by UNICEF, the International Detention Coalition, the Instituto para las Mujeres en la MigraciĆ³n, AC (IMUMI), UNHCR and SOS Children's Villages.

The webinar focused on experiences and opportunities to implement alternative care models for children and adolescents in the context of migration, for which ISS shared the panel with Esmeralda Arosemena, of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission, and Dora Giusti, Head of Child Protection at UNICEF Mexico.

The webinar offered a new opportunity to reflect on the current situation of children on the move, in particular across the American continent, and to disseminate opportunities and initiatives developed to provide them with adequate alternative care and sustainable options as alternatives to detention.
