In 2016-2017 the Legal Clinic for Immigrants and Refugees is partner to the project of the DG Justice to the EC FAIR (Fostering Access for Immigrant children’s Rights)
7igrant children are amongst the most vulnerable groups in terms of fundamental rights protection in the EU. They are subject to a dual vulnerability both as children and migrants, and may be subject to additional vulnerabilities: unaccompanied; separated; undocumented; asylum seekers; subject to detention; and/or having undocumented parents or legal guardians. They may be also part of other vulnerable or marginalized groups, such as girls, children with disabilities, members of ethnic or religious minorities, or have a chronic illness.
The overall goal of the FAIR project is to contribute to ensure access to justice to migrant children.
The project is fulfilled by the International Commission of Jurists – European Institutions ICJ-EI. The national partners are Greek Council for Refugees (GCR) (EL), aditus foundation (MT), Fundacion Raices (ES), Bundesfachverband Unbegleitete Minderjährige Flüchtlinge e.V. (B-UMF) (DE), Legal Clinic for Immigrant and Refugees (LCIR) (BG), Immigrant Council of Ireland (ICI) (IR), Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (SSSA) and Association for Legal Studies on Immigration (ASGI) (IT).
Assistance will be provided by Child Rights Connect, the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) and the AIRE Centre as associate partners. ICJ-EI will manage the activities and ensure the overall project coordination. A Project Management Group (PMG) will include one representative of each national partner and one representative of Child Rights Connect.
